Easter Weekend

Was a busy one for Team Johnson. Posts over the next few days will be all about the fun weekend!

To get us started, we spent Saturday morning opening up Gilbert's care package from my parents.

They sent a police car that was filled with plastic egs loaded with M&M's. Little Man experienced his first and we had to immediately pick up the eggs as he wanted to open and eat all the M&M's.

Along with the eggs were a few toys and the police car - when you push the siren - shouts out police calls such as "Calling all cars. Calling all cars. Be on the lookout for a white furry bunny." Of course, Gilbert found this to be utterly amusing and repeated pushed the siren.

But the best gift of all was the boxing tiger. Press the foot and Eye of the Tiger starts to play and the stuffed tigers arms swing like it is punching. Oh yeah, the tiger is dressed in boxing garb. Gilbert could not get enough of the tiger. He'd pick it up, stand up, and dance as the song played.

Then he learned that if you pressed the start button, you could stop it. Hit the button again, and the song would start over. Yes, you know where this is headed. For the ten minutes, all we heard was, "Rising Up." "Rising Up." "Rising up, back from the streets." "Rising Up, back front the street.. Did my time. Took my chances." Rising Up." Do I need to go on?
