Be My Neighbor Day

I'll catch up on other happenings but here's what we were up to today...Be My Neighbor Day with Daniel Tiger. I found out about it about a month ago and grabbed our (free) tickets. I kept it a surprise from Emery in case something came up and we couldn't make it--there's nothing worse than disappointing a 2 year old. So, I told her this morning that we were going on an adventure and we packed the backpack and headed out. It was in downtown Phoenix so it took us about an hour to get there...and another 20 minutes or so to find parking. When I saw all the school buses, I knew we were in trouble and it was packed but after about an hour the school kids cleared out and it was a little better. When I told her what the surprise was she looked around for Daniel Tiger. We walked in and got our "Passports" and then proceeded to get the 6 stamps that we needed to go see Daniel Tiger. Along the way we picked up Emery's very own Home Depot apron, colored, painted, made an egg shaker, got a toothbrush, painted some more, and 'rode' on trolley. Emery loved riding on trolley 'just wike Daniel Tiger!' Then we proceeded to make our way to the line to meet the main man. It was about an hour long and 100 degrees but we had fun while we waited. Curious George came by along the way so that helped the cause. Then my mom met up with us and took us to lunch. Emery is now crashed upstairs and I imagine she'll sleep well tonight too.

So excited!! I think she actually liked this better than seeing the 'real' Daniel Tiger.

They gave all the kids these Daniel Tiger 'cone' things. Emery and this little boy had fun yelling in them while waiting in line.

Once we got up there she didn't want to sit next to Daniel Tiger by herself so we both got to meet him.
