Happy Birthday, Mallorie!

Here's the birthday cake I would make you, if I was a baker. It's too cool to even eat, isn't it?

An Evening at the Circus

Thanks to Gigaboo's generosity, Cade and I attended Ringling Bros and Barnum & Bailey's Boom a Ring at the LJVM Coliseum tonight. Cade and I watched the circus from the stadium seats. Mallorie watched from the spotlight operators stand - 100 feet in the air!

While certainly the circus is entertaining, there are some boring moments as well. I'm not as big on the performing animals. If you've seen tigers, elephants, dogs, etc. well, you've seen all the tricks before. Cade apparently agreed with me; he got a bit restless. There were some death defying acts, and the performers held mine and Cade's attentions.

The best performer, and one who tickled Cade to no end, was Justin Case. Cade was captivated watching Mr. Case ride various sided bicycles.

Mallorie enjoyed the experience as well. She wasn't as much into the circus as she was listening to the stage manager calling spotlight cues over the headset.

First Day

Today was my first day as the Weekend Manager. And how did I celebrate this momentous occasion? By locking my keys in the office.

I frantically called Ally and then AJ. Neither were available to swing by to unlock the office. I had to call my boss, who had been at the museum this morning for a training session, and who had just pulled into her driveway in High Point. She was none too pleased with having to return to the museum.

I'm still employed. And I'm still the Weekend Manager. First thing on Monday I'm getting one of these keychains:
