Flashing For Beads

On our last night in Disneyland, we decided to have dinner in the New Orleans section where pirates roamed streets and your feet kept rhythm with the array of music about. We dined at the French Market Restaurant located right beside the Haunted Mansion. The restaurant has delicious creole dishes along with fabulous entertainment, which we were one of the chosen ones to partake in the highly entertaining show. And, because we are the parents that we are, we eagerly shoved our children into the foray in hopes that got us adults off the hook. Luckily, the prerequisite was children to be a part of the travelling band.
Kaelen enthusiastically grabbed the tamborine and began shaking it with zest in an attempt to keep pace (and tune) to the music. He travelled around patio in the music train having the time of his life. And where was Masyn this whole time?

Well, she decided that she would entertain the crowd by taking center stage and dance to the music. And being the attention seeker she is, she even lifted her sweater to show off her belly which she was promptly rewarded with two beaded necklaces thrown her way. And, as if she had won the lottery, she eagerly scooped up her prizes and ran over to Kaelen to share the wealth.


My husband swears they get their attention seeking ways from me, but the truth is that they are all him. He is a closet seeker meaning that he acts all bashful and humble at first, but then that light switches on and suddenly it's "show time folks".

You never told me this story....priceless!

I really don't know who they get these habits from. I am inclined to agree with your husband....although he has for sure had his moments!
Really tough call there....

Toooooooooooooooo funny! My hubby is the same way. Though I always exploit him on my blog so I guess it's *always* showtime at our place. :-)
