Fun with Grammie and Grampie

Grammie and Grampie are simply wonderful.  Benny loves to spend time with them.  A few weeks ago, Benny went to Sesame Street Live with them.  He was so excited!  The best part?  Apparently, they were in an aisle seat.  Cookie Monster was dancing in the aisle and touched Benny's arm.  Benny is still talking about how Cookie touched his arm.  That night, I didn't get him to bed until 10:00 because he was so excited about going to the Elmo Show as he likes to call it.  The next day, I'm pretty sure he asked me at least 100 times if he could go to the Elmo Show again.  Today, probably over a month later, he asks me if he can go to the Elmo Show again.  A highlight event of the year!  (The pictures are little because they were from Grammie's cell phone.)

An additional favorite activity from this winter/spring was going to the car wash with Grampie.  Grampie purchased this monthly package from the car wash to have unlimited car washes each month.  They put it to good use!  My guess for Benny's future occupation at the moment?  Car wash operator and owner.  He begs to go to the car wash with Grampie pretty much every day.  Benny is so popular at the car wash that the car wash guys gave him one of their drying towels.  After all, I'm pretty sure Benny is their only true fan.  He also likes to pretend to wash his toy cars.  He and Brutus often 'wash' the toy cars together.  He has now decided that the Elmo Train that he got from Grammie and Grampie for this 2nd birthday is a car wash.  You put the cars through the tunnel and then pretend to dry them with a dishtowel.  He has gone so far as to get a bowl of soapy water and use a toothbrush to wash the cars.  Now that is nice outside, he likes to wash the cars with Daddy.  This makes Daddy pretty nervous.  Daddy is a car nut.  Benny---wash his cars!?  Why, he might scratch them!  Thus, Benny has been designated as the official washer of the Hyundai.  Apparently, Daddy is less concerned if the Hyundai gets scratched.

Happy car washer.

Sometimes, when you are on the way home from the car wash, you stop and get a Krispy Kreme donut.  Benny always asks for a brown donut with a hole in it.
