We love our Veggies!
Veggie Tales that is!
The boys went to their first live show on Friday. Auntie Amy, Uncle Jackie, Caroline, Sophie, Auntie Kiki and Auntie Nancy joined us for a live performance by the Veggie Tales. For those who are unfamiliar, Veggie Tales are a bunch of vegetables that sing and tell stories all with a Christian message. So Bob the Tomato and Larry the Cucumber and their friends came to our church to sing and dance to some of their fun songs.
The boys haven't watched much of the Veggie Tales but love to listen to their CDs. You should hear Peyton spontaneously break out in singing "This is the day that the Lord has made I will rejoice and be glad in it." It always brings a huge smile to my face.
So the drawback was that the show coincided with nap time. We had a few whiny moments but the boys were mesmerized by the giant veggies on stage and were excited to see them. They clapped along and did a little dancing too. Brett seemed to enjoy it the most and they even performed a couple tunes from the '80s, which we parents enjoyed!
Several days later Jackson said to me "Thank you Mommy for taking me to Veggie Tales". It was so out of nowhere and oh, so sweet!
The boys weren't too cooperative with photos but here are some photos but here are a few anyway:
Jackson & Brett couldn't stop looking at their concert shirts (thanks Auntie Kiki!)
