Big Birthday Surprise
So for two months we had been planning this big birthday surprise for B and it was killing me not to tell him. I kept the secret until the night before which was the day after his birthday.
Here we are in the car all ready to go. You will first notice that B is the only child in the car. That was part of the gift. A day alone with daddy and mommy all to himself. Uncle D and Aunt F also joined us.
And here was the Big Surprise..........
STAR WARS IN CONCERT!!!!!!!!! Now if you would have told me ten years ago that I would be going to a Star Wars event I would have said you were nuts. The things we do for our children.
B all ready for the show. Yes we did let him bring a mask to wear and yes he was the dressed down version of costume. Some people spent a small fortune on costumes for the occasion.
It turned out to be one of the best shows we've ever seen! The symphony was awesome and B was glued to his chair from beginning to end.
The actual guy who plated C3-Po is the one who narrated it.
The big screens and light show were great too.
There were plenty of characters to get your pictures with.
Now I can definitely say that the funniest moment was when B didn't want his picture with Princess Leigha so daddy and Uncle D piled all the coats and programs in his hands so they could get one.
Oh dear. We all had a great time. My favorite part of it all was getting to spend a whole day with just B.
