Donovan and I had a date with Leo, his Mom, his sister and her friend at the International Children's Festival today. I was super-geeked because part of the festival was huge "luminaria" that you could walk thru called Amococo. I was even more excited when we got there because it was HUGE. Massive, even. And of course, like all things I think my son will like, as soon as we walked in the crying started, "I don't like this place! I want to leave! I want to put my shoes back on!" I try not to feel too bad when he does this but sometimes I get this overwhelming feeling of defeat. Luckily I fought it because, after a friend of mine who was working there showed us some of the cooler parts, Donny started getting into it.
Directly after this, they had 4 more beers and ended up at the Navy Recruitment office.
