today was a very full day. it started out early at the joffrey school for alexa’s first ballet class of the season (it was precious as always). then my little sister gaby–aka tia gaby–came to visit us from college and we all jumped on the f train and headed out to prospect park for nickelodeon’s worldwide day of play. our friend’s at strider bikes recommended that we go to the event and we are so glad we did. we couldn’t believe how many people came out, it was crazy. although there were tons of fun activities, the only thing that mattered to alexa was meeting the “characters.” from our point of view it seemed a little nuts to wait in a line of 30 people to meet adults dressed up in team umizoomi costumes, but i guess you have to think like a three year old.
the event had a pretty incredible stage with performances from ariana grande and big time rush… so, i had no idea who these teen bands were, but not going to lie, they have a seriously impressive twitter following (my little sis gaby was pretty psyched about ariana grande).
