|Jacob and Little Brian|
The play was cute, but just didn't hold their attention very well... there were some kid funny parts that they got a kick out of, but for the most part they were bored. Little Brian likes to let out and exasperated yawn when he is bored... I loved how they used shadows to portray how small the borrowers were, but I don't think the boys understood that. It was even worse after intermission (after they had smelled freedom- ha ha ). Jacob was being very whining and complaining he was hungry and wanted to leave. He said, "I never want to come back here" It was cute, and I told him that was fine, however he needed to sit still and watch the rest of the show... he ended up on my lap for the last 30 mins of the play. Little Brian was VERY patient and well behaved even though he wanted to leave. When the play was over and everyone started clapping their eyes light up and they asked if they could leave.

After the play we went out to dinner at The Chuck Box for burgers. Jacob didn't want to eat anything but popcorn so rather than waste the money on his meal that he would eat anyway we just let him have popcorn... Little Brian ate ALL of his food and still seemed hungry so Kenny asked him to 'help' him finish his burger and Little Brian agreed to help him. It was pretty cute.
When it was time to say good-bye Jacob cried and cried. Little Brian used to be the one who always threw a fit when we had to drop them off, but I don't remember him sobbing in this way... We purchased a HUGE (3 foot) bag of popcorn as a peace offering/bribe to avoid the crying... it didn't work. He didn't care about the popcorn in the least and had to give me 3-4 hugs before he would let us leave and he was still sobbing like we would never see him again. Poor kid.
