Jake loves his Veggies

On Saturday, Ruth's Christian Bookstore in the mall in town had several special screenings of the Veggie Tales adventure "Minnesota Cuke and the Search for Noah's Umbrella."

Jake lately has been really into Veggie Tales. So, we headed into town to catch the 1 p.m. showing. They had goodie bags for the kids and free popcorn. We sat on the floor in front of the rows of chairs they had set up and watched the big screen. It was Jake's first time to eat popcorn (unless the grandparents snuck some in and didn't tell us) and he liked it. He did pretty well watching the movie, switching between Violet's lap and mine.

At the end of the showing, two special guests showed up — Larry the Cucumber and Bob the Tomato. It was wonderful to see Jake's reaction when Larry rounded the corner and Jake saw him. His eyes got big, he broke out into a smile and pointed excitedly. Then, he jumped off Violet's lap and hustled over to Larry, even giving Larry a hug. He was so excited. He also got curious and had to peek into the arm hole of the costume to see who was inside.

Then, we got a few pictures on Violet's cell phone of Jake with Bob and Larry. Sorry we don't have any posted, but we are cell phone challenged and don't have any way to get them off the cell phone and onto our computer. However, one of the store owners had his camera (we really need to remember to take ours with us everywhere) and snapped at least one shot. He's going to e-mail it to us, so we will post it when we get it.

Of course, the little ham was mugging it up when he was getting his picture taken. He looked so cute, and all the adults around thought so, too!

He's also the proud owner now of two Minnesota Cuke adventures: "The Search for Noah's Umbrella" and "The Search for Sampson's Hairbrush." (They had the 2 DVD set on sale.) With them came a free green Veggie Tales umbrella. Jake can't wait for it to rain! LOL

Another fun day for the family.

That is absolutely precious! You'd better keep on that guy to email you that picture. I've had that happen to me--someone says they'll mail it, then they don't. It sounds like it was a fun day for you all.
