Throwback Thursday – PJs

SANYO DIGITAL CAMERAHi and Happy Thursday! For today’s Throwback Thursday photo, I decided to go with one from 4 years ago of Ian in his pajamas. He looked so cute in his Thomas The Train pjs.

This morning on Good Morning America, they were talking about it being Wear Your Pajamas to Work Day. So, I thought this would be a great one to include.

It was taken on the porch of the beach house. Ian was having breakfast and looking outside at all of the activity.  He looks intrigued by something. Not quite sure what it was.

He has grown quite a bit since then, but the hair is quite similar.  Still a bit messy in the morning.  Now his legs are long and he stands very tall. Amazing what a difference four years can make.

Today I am thankful for:

  • Saturday mornings in our PJs
  • Old family photos
  • Messy hair of a young boy
  • Oatmeal and fruit for breakfast
  • Dinner and visits with my family
  • Lunch dates
  • Getting back in touch with old friends

I wonder what the rest of the day will bring?  I am sure plenty of adventure.  Let’s make a great one!

Tuesday Tunes – The Symphony


On Sunday, we went to the local symphony orchestra’s concert for children.  This is the second year that we have attended this great concert and had a lot of fun.

The theme was Thomas the Train and all things train-related.  Even the songs were about trains. Among them were The Chattanooga Choo-Choo, the theme from Thomas the Train, and a song from the Polar Express movie.

Ian was in his element since he has liked trains for a while now.

The conductor had the kids in the audience blow their train whistles at certain parts of the show.  And, the kids paraded across the stage during one song.  GEDSC DIGITAL CAMERA

Prior to the concert, students could make crafts and watch trains go around on a track.  They also made instruments.

In addition, there was a petting zoo where students could hold the instruments and play them.  Ian had fun trying out two violins and a cello.  You can see the fun he was having.

It was a great way to introduce young people to classical music.  I applaud the conductor and his musicians for doing this.  Bravo!!

The program said that an adult can get a half-price ticket if you take a child under 18 to a concert.  Isn’t that cool? They are doing a holiday concert and we’ll plan to go to that as well.

The other cool thing for the day was the location of the concert.  It was where I used to perform in high school chorus and drama club, and helped with lighting for the city ballet.  It brought back many memories for me.  They have renovated the auditorium so the sound has improved.

Not only was it a trip down memory lane but a fun new time with my family, including my parents who came with us.

Happy Tuesday!
