It was really good. I would have taken pictures but they didn't want photos or videos taken. The people chosen for The cat in the Hat, Horton, Jojo, and everyone else were perfect.
There was also a raffle that you could enter for gift baskets with different prizes in each. During the intermission Louis paid $5 for 2 tickets and we both decided which baskets to try for. The winners were picked right after the intermission was over and posted for people to see after the show was over. The second half of the show was also great and I had so much fun. It gets even better though!
When the show was over Louis and I were heading toward the door and he noticed that he won one of the baskets! It was for a night out in Woodinville. It came with 2 Movie Tickets, Coupons for Popcorn and drinks, $25 Barnes and Noble gift card, $25 Red Robin gift card, and a $10 Cold Stone gift card. The total value for the basket is $95! We have already decided when we are going to use each gift card. More to come on that later.
Here he is with the winning basket

Then Louis and I helped my parents put gravel into the dog potty yard. The gravel was in the driveway and we had to haul it around the house to the backyard. It was a lot of hard work but totally worth it. Here is a picture of me while working hard.
We got done around 8 pm, had dinner, then watched some of "The 10th Kingdom". If you haven't seen that movie it's really good. It's 8 hours long so you had to be ready to either watch it on a day you're not doing anything or watch it in parts. Louis told me he really liked what he saw so far.

I have also been gardening some more too. It's actually been good weather the last few days, but I would still like it to be over 60 degrees at least once this spring. Oh Well- you can't always get what you want. At least I have been able to get outside! WOOHOO!

I got about half the garden space done but now I have to wait until Wednesday to do anymore. Why Wednesday? That's our garbage day and the yard waste bin is full. I just have to wait one more day, that's not to bad.
Once I get the space cleared out, Louis is going to help me get vegetable plants and plant them. This is going to be so much fun!

I was going to make Chinese Hash for dinner but decided to do my mom's homemade macaroni and cheese instead. I have had a really rough week and I wanted to make a simple dish that wouldn't take too much time. It was really good and I showed Louis how to make it too. He brought dessert this time and it was fudge. It was so good and I probably ate more than I should have, but it was so good (yes, I did repeat myself because it was that good)!
After dinner and fudge we started setting up for the Easter Egg coloring. I bought two different kits the other day and I was interested in seeing how the eggs would turn out. Let's just say it was a process of trial and error. We ended up with some interesting color combinations but we had so much fun. I kept 6 and Louis took the other six.
Then came the games. First we played the Disney Edition of Scene It. It was a lot of fun or maybe I'm just saying that because I won. No, it was totally fun! Next came several rounds of a game called Pass The Pigs. My brother and his wife introduced this game to our family several years ago and we got hooked on it. I won twice, Louis won twice, and my mom won once. We then went on to Yahtzee which is one of the best games of all times. We played two games of that which I believe my mom won both times, but it was all in good fun. We wanted to play Apples to Apples, but there just were not enough people to play (that's partly why I was sad that my father had to work).
In closing: It was a lot of fun. Even though I didn't get to bed until about 2 am and I had to get up for work at 6:30. Woohoo...4.5 hours of sleep! I thought I would be really tired but I'm not. When I get home I think I am just going to want to sleep. I was hoping to pick up some vegetable plants on my way home from work but I think I may have to do it another day. I just don't think I can make it.
More to come soon!

The hike was great but we didn't get to the summit as planned because there was too much snow on top. We were kind of bummed but it gives us something to look forward to in the summer. We already talked about it and are thinking maybe June? Anyway the scenery was absolutely beautiful and we saw birds, a squirrel, and a newt. It was so much fun and I can't wait to go again in a few months! After we dropped Oscar back at the house we went to the Cold Stone Creamery in Woodinville and had some really good cake batter ice cream. I had mine with chocolate chips, a kit kat, and M&Ms mixed in. It was so yummy! After we finished he took me back home and I was so tired. I went to bed early that night and slept like a rock! Yesterday at church Louis told me that he took a long nap when he got home. It's a good thing we didn't do anything else that day!
Here are some pics from the hike.
This is the little newt we saw. Can you believe I almost stepped on him! I didn't see him at first and then I had to hop over it to avoid killing him. I would have felt horrible!

Today has been a wonderful day so far. There has actually been a blue sky for most of the afternoon. I am going to Xander to the park when he wakes up from his nap and I am going to also take my mom with me so she can get some pictures of us together. I've been wanting to do it for a while, but everyone was usually busy so it was just me. I'm crossing my fingers that everything will go smoothly this afternoon.

I decided to try a close-up of my Leopard Gecko Gollum and I have to say that the picture actually makes him look kind of cute! I can't believe he is 8 years old. I have a feeling that I am going to have way too much fun now and I don't have to worry about changing lens when I am out on a hike. I also don't need to worry about breaking a $1200 Nikon D90 either.
