Wiggle Time!

On Saturday, Jon and his brother Dan had plans with their brothers to celebrate Dan's recent promotion to captain in the fire department. So with two kids and a free Saturday night, what else would two moms do? Of course, take the toddlers to go see The Wiggles live in concert!

The day didn't start off great for JD and I since he refused to take a nap on Saturday. I was frustrated because I'm thinking that a grouchy toddler, pregnant mom and 2,000 screaming kids weren't going to be a great mix.

Dan's wife Heather and their daughter Kenna came over and we headed out to the concert, which was about an hour away. We played Wiggles dvds the whole way for the kids, just to get them warmed up!

By the time we got there, the kids were already pretty excited. We arrived with 15 minutes to spare, which was the perfect amount of time! JD kept asking when the Wiggles would come out.

When the concert started, both kids started clapping and dancing. JD did all of the motions along with the songs that he knew (which was most of them).

It was pretty entertaining and just the right amount of time. JD loved seeing his favorite characters on stage. He called them "The Big Wiggles."

Both of the kids did really well, considering it was dinner time (5:00 start time) and they started getting a little sleepy toward the end. I know JD LOVED it!

We stopped for a quick bite to eat on the way home and had the kids bathed and put to bed by 9:00 pm. The kids went down without a peep - they were pretty pooped!! What a great Wiggly time together!

(Thanks Heather for the pics! My camera ran out of batteries!)

Can't beat the Wiggles! Love 'em! I am a little sad we missed this year's concert, but we've been to 3 in the last 5 years. Always entertaining and fun!
