So today is the 50th Anniversary of the March on Washington. Hard to believe there was a time when a person's skin color could mean they couldn't sit at a lunch counter, live in a neighborhood or ride at the front of a bus.
The worst thing is that this really limits the number of interesting people you could be friends with. As a toddler who likes to make friends with everyone at the play field this would seriously cramp my style.
Sometimes Toddler logic trumps that of adults. Enough said.
I had to take a break from my blog for a week. I was visiting the Centennial State . . . Colorado! Best of all I was reunited with my friend from the 4N Gang, Ben. I should call it the 5N Gang because he came with an addition . . . OweN!
Good times! There was so much to do! From gold prospecting to spelunking to rock collecting I was all over it!
Yeah, we got a little worn out, but we kept supporting ourselves when times were tough.
Hey, Colorado is a state for MEN not Toddlers, so we had each other's back when the Sun and altitude got to us.
I even did a little bit of rock climbing.
When I come back I'll be at this guy's level.
Yeah, Colorado is a a fun state. You don't see a Teddy Bear like this in Seattle!
I had been anticipating this event for a long time . . . and it finally happened. I went to a movie for the first time in an actual theater!
It had certainly helped that my friend Dominic had been telling me about it all through our play date yesterday. Mommy was excited also, so excited that she left her cell phone at Macy's.
Thankfully Daddy moved quickly to retrieve it and we were all settled in for the previews!
It was action packed and full of the drama that one would expect from a good film. Would Dusty Crophopper win the race around the world or would it be the villainous Ripslinger?!?! More importantly would Dusty find love with Ishani. There were so many plot twists!
I was disappointed with a few things. Apparently yelling commentary during the movie is frowned upon as well as eating popcorn off the floor. Oh well. There was only one thing more exciting than watching the movie . . . the self flushing toilet in the Family Restroom. Yeah, ended up taking a few potty breaks just to see that thing work!
Still, safe to say I made it through the entire film.
That is a victory in itself. There was some debate if I was going to last but I did!
Yeah, these movie theaters have a lot to offer. I will be back!
Mommy downloaded some Netflix for me and we got to watch the adventures of Tinkerbell and her fairy friends.
I appreciated it at first, but there were some scenes that got me a little upset. There was the scene where Tinkerbell got chased by a cat and trapped in a cage- it was scary. Still, I was able to clutch Mommy a little tighter and things ended up ok.
I realized that to make a movie interesting you actually need conflict and drama to keep things exciting. Still, I was glad to have my Mommy close to me as a precaution if things got too intense!
The excitement for Disneyland is just getting me too emotional!
