What a wonderful time at a wonderful place. I had seen where Carmen was playing in Boone of all places and decided to surprise Jonathan with a little early Christmas present. Everything was PERFECT. The opera - the meals- the company and the break.

My Sony hand held recorder is my favorite gadget. I take it everywhere, and of course, have recorded lots of special moments. The recorder's hold switch locks the unit doing whatever it was doing, one reason why it's a perfect gadget for grandaughters Grayson and Avery to play with. Can anyone tell me why toddlers turn handheld devices over and over and over? Do they think whoever is making the sound is going to fall out? As Anne blogged about earlier, Grayson visited Camp Toad Hall week before last.
On the living room floor, laughing and playing, I figured this was as good as any time to record her happy voice, and so I gave her my Sony. Locked in "play" mode, Grayson looked quizzically at the recorder, hearing her cousin saying what every dog says, "Huff, huff, huff, huff, huff, huff." And yes, she turned it over and over and over as if expecting a little Avery (or a little dog!) to fall out.
Grayson moved on to riding her little red Fire Truck that makes lots and lots of pre-recorded sounds at the tap of a button. Then we moved on to blocks, reading, and then we went for a wagon ride.

Fun and games every Saturday morning at a long loved Greensboro tradition. Grayson has been going to the market since she was old enough to be out with all those people. She seems to know just what's happening there and loves every minute of it. You can hear here singing in the backpack. It is fun to travel with her...
and coming to the front door of the famous Toad Hall. CAMPTOADHALL at its finest with Grandchildren. We had about 1,000 or so Trick or Treaters come after she did but she never even stirred with dogsabarking and doorbellsaringing she slept right through till 8 AM on Morning #1 of CampToadHall for her.
