A Visit to the Library

First time wearing any sort of backpack, had to get a picture!
Today Diego and I took a little trip to the library. I have been wanting to take him back for a visit for a while now, and today seemed like a great day. It was extra rainy outside and we didn't have much going on. I took Diego to the library once when he was much younger to try out the toddler story time, it was a bust. He was trying to escape the whole time, so, we hadn't been back until now. This time he really enjoyed the visit. The childrens section has 3 large cubes with blocks and mirrors, etc and he loves those. They also had a lego table and he enjoyed making and pushing over towers. He even met another boy named Elijah. Elijah was quite a bit older (10) but very polite and very sweet with Diego. Diego would knock over Elijah's lego towers too, but he didn't mind. After some playtime, we checked out two books, one about trains (go figure) and one about a little policeman. We also checked out their themed backpacks for children. They had all kinds of themes, and we chose trains this time. (Next up, the potty training bag.) When it was time to checkout, we both needed library cards and Diego was so excited to have his very own and check out books under his own card. He left the library wearing the backpack (usually he refuses to wear backpacks, so seeing him with it was so cute). When we got home, we checked out the contents of the backpack and he was thrilled, 3 books about trains, a toy train to play with, a Toy Trains DVD Music Video (I've seen it about 1000 times and I'm pretty sure I could go without seeing it again) and the John Denver CD All Aboard.

Checking out his new card!

"Show me your library card, Diego", oops, a little too close. :)

awww,he is so so so so so cute. We love the library, we try to go weekly.
We have done story time at West Salem and then story time and the main library, my kids seem to enjoy the main library better. It's a fun and cheap way to entertain kids.

I love the backpack picture. He's three now, so it's no big deal, right? I'm glad he had fun and got some great books. I am going to check out that backpack, record the music video and set it as your ringtone when you aren't looking :)
