Muffin Man and I drove up to High Falls, NY to visit QuiltsAlot and TellsDonaldDuckStories.
It was a pretty good drive up, 5.5 hours not counting stops. When we got there, my parents bore MM off, not to be cared for by me again until the drive back (aside from the whole sharing a bed with me thing, but that doesn't count. He was sleeping.)
Saturday was thoroughly about the G-Rated entertainment. After a good breakfast and a good running around outside in the cold air, and freeing a bird that got stuck in the screened-in porch (the storm had ripped some of the screens off), we drove into New Paltz and saw a fabulous puppet show.
It was the Fairy Circus, performed by the Tanglewood Marionettes. Super-duper fantastic, guaranteed stunner. MM was entranced. He was laughing so infectiously at some points that a little 15-month-0ld laughed, just to hear him.
After that, we had some lunch. And after THAT, we went to see Wallace and Gromit at the movie theatre. Muffin Man's first time in a real theatre, as opposed to our living room. He loved it. He had to sit on my lap for a few scary bits. But he ate up the whole experience like popcorn. Which he had plenty of as well.
And today he ran around outside, freed another bird and cuddled with his grandparents. And then we drove home, got back by 5:30 and so to bed...
It was a good weekend, but I'm glad to be back.
