There was lots to do this past weekend, including the yearly Miami Book Fair International. They have a wonderful "Children's Alley" especially suited for small kids with lots of activities, which included opportunities for Lucas to plant his own tomato seed, decorate a pot, lots of coloring, and even visits with favorite characters. Lucas enjoyed meeting Clifford the Dog and was loving the Dr. Seuss exhibit (mostly because he wanted a hat of his own). We picked up several new books for Lucas while we were there.
Sadly, Lucas use to love Tom's favorite all-time story "Where the Wild Things Are" but in the last 6 months or so, his "fear factor" has really kicked in so he freaks whenever Max makes it to the land of the wild things (that's usually as far as we make before he starts screaming "no!" at the top of his lungs). Don't let the picture below fool you...he was okay when he first saw "wild thing" but the moment he tried to make contact with Lucas, well, that was that!
We finished the morning off at Bubba Gump's in Bayside where Lucas decided to become a fan of Daddy's caesar salad.
