Rockin' out

So we took Sam to his first concert this past weekend. It was a free concert at the zoo and one of our favorite bands happened to be playing, Lunch Money. Sam really likes their CD and I'll admit, it is not offensive to the parental ear...ok, so really I like a few of their songs. So although we'd really be pushing nap time we ultimately decided it was worth the trip. Hubby and I recognized that we would probably enjoy the concert a lot more than Sam would, but how can you turn down a free concert at a place where you have a membership, making the whole thing free, free, free?

Well, we were totally wrong - Sam loved it. As soon as they started playing music he was dancing. I so wish we had the video camera because the pictures just don't do his moves justice. It was cute, really cute. When they were having the kids all jump during a song Sam tried to jump by going up on his toes over and over again. I have to admit I got a little misty from all the cuteness going around. I was really glad we went - very worth pushing back the nap a bit.

Clapping for the band...while eating a cracker...and sitting in goose poo.

This is his head bopping move, in which he bops his head to and fro while keeping the rest of his body totally rigid.

Waving back and forth move, in which he sways from side to side.

Squatting move, in which he stands immobile and bends his legs repeatedly.

Carefully approaching the stage.

Yes, I realize these pictures all look exactly the same. I told you, we didn't bring the video camera! We suck!

I swear, we never use our video camera... it seems like a hassle, then I kick myself for not have clips of my son longer than 60 seconds (in which the dig cam covers).

Great photos! What a sweetie pie!

I've seen the bopping move. My 1-year old does it, especially when we're watching Dancing with the Stars.

My 3-year old does it, too. His version is to bop his head and butt.

Then he passes gas.
