We went with some friends this weekend to see Elmo. Dominic took off once we cleared the parking lot to check out Elmo's truck.

Getting ready for the show... We had great seats and the new arena is very nice.

Dominic cried through the first 15 minutes or so. He was TERRIFIED. Since the place was full of kids and he wasn't the only screaming child, I decided to stick it out until at least intermission. At some point when a song finished he paused the crying, looked up at me and then burst into tears again crying for "MORE. More music. More Elmo." Sad, cute and funny all rolled up in one... :) From that point on he loved it!

Dominic's first "hike"

We checked out one of the nature trails in a park across the river this evening...

Dominic was excited at first and kept saying "Come on"

Every step had to be coordinated with "1,2,3!"

Picking up rocks

and sticks.

When we got near the end, Dominic decided he was done and sat in the middle of the trail.

Running to catch up...

We played in the park after our walk. Dominic loves the park, but leaving means about 20 minutes of screaming and crying "Bye-bye, park".
