Mr. G's birthday is coming up soon and we've gotten into the habit of giving events and experiences instead of stuff to the boys. Last year he went to a Brewer game, for Christmas he got tickets to watch an Iowa-Wisconsin college basketball game. This year he asked for some football cards, a binder for his extensive card collection, and some pages. Such a modest request, plus we still like watching the kids unwrap something on their special day.
Football cards, binder and page inserts have been ordered--and so have tickets to a very special event.
We've never taken the kids to anything like this before. Heck, Mr. D and I have never been to anything like this before ourselves--we've bought tickets to a Renaissance Fair, an opera, the circus and car races but never, ever to this. Without a doubt this is one of the weirdest, most outrageous things I've ever laid out my Visa card to purchase, but when Mr. G opens this envelope, he will go positively crazy with excitement.
1. There will be face paint.
2. There will be payback.
3. There will be a main event.
Spill it, reader. Can you imagine what we've got in store for our youngest?
I'll let you in on the surprise next week...with pictures. And stay tuned for a book giveaway!
