S'more and S'more S'mores!

Sometimes my mom plans the craziest activities ever. But they are fun activities, so I am game. A couple of days ago when I woke my momma was hanging all these blankets on my window making my room 'black dark'.  I am not scared of 'black dark' but I don't know why she would want to do that in the morning time.

Next thing my friend Cierra came to play and she had a handful of twigs for a campfire. Momma said that we were going to build the campfire in my bedroom. Huh??

She dug out my strobe light, put some tissue on it and then some twigs. Um, doesn't much look like a campfire to me. But then she shut the door, turned out the lights, and look!

Real (almost) fire!

We tried to get photos of roasting marshmallows but they didn't work
. We left the lights out and used canned heat.
Then my mom did something crazy again.
She smooshed a cooked marshmallow and a candy bar between two crackers.
I was a bit hesitant to try it.
Cierra wasn't.

Hey, this isn't bad!

Then my momma told me a story about 5 little marshmallows that turned into s'mores.
She used my new story time cookie sheet. I'll be using this cookie sheet for lots of school activities.
The story pieces are magnetized, and I had fun telling the story over and over. I even told it to Daddy when he came home from work.

We had a s'more theme all week. We got to eat s'mores each day. Well, actually only two days. 
By the second day I had pretty much figured out that I just wanted to lick off the chocolate and forget the marshmallow. By the third day, I skipped  every thing but the chocolate bar.

'Course when you got a mom like mine, you can't expect to just stop at the enjoyment part of it. 
She's always gotta make it a learning thing. 
I had to do spelling:



And sequencing:

Still it was fun. 
Wonder what kind of other fun things mom has planned for when 'real' school starts in a few weeks?

I'll take one of these!

When I was just a little kid my momma took me on an airplane adventure. Daddy missed the adventure last year, so this year I had to show him the ropes since I am an old pro and know my way around.

Of course when you go to an airplane show, you get to check out the airplanes up close and personal. The red one was pretty cool.

But I specially liked the yellow one.
It's got black propellers. 

Mommy said she could tell that Daddy specially liked this one too. 
She said the grin on his face says it all.
Something tells me that they weren't talking about the airplane.

Know why I liked the yellow airplane so much?
Cuz after a bit of flight instruction,

I am ready for take off!
See ya mom!

Phooey, that didn't work at all. 
Said I was too little. What's up with that?
Well, maybe next year.

There was a man that said that I could take a ride in this:

Oh, sigh. It's just not an airplane you know?
Sigh, sigh, sigh.

We were really close to the take off area so it was a little noisy.
I didn't mind that noise at all. 
I just wanted to ride.

I mean who wouldn't want to be flying straight up way high...

Then shooting back down really fast...

Then flying a loop over backwards,

Then doing a barrel roll?

Yep this is the place for me!
Mommy liked these planes the best. 
Shhh, I am going to be quiet a minute and let you enjoy their show:

Well, the day came to an end.
I didn't get to ride in or even buy an airplane; but they were cool to watch.

Oh, wait!
Since I can't have a plane, can't I just have this?
Please Daddy Please?!
