We're Off To See The Wizard...

Summer Reading has begun! My mom runs our local library's summer children's program every year, and every year she goes bigger and better! She really is a genius, full of ideas and cleverness. Kids look forward to this program and can't wait for it to start.

This year my mom has chosen the theme "Somewhere Over the Rainbow: A Summer of Classics." We're focusing on some of the greatest classic children's stories: Wizard of Oz, Jungle Book, Peter Pan, and Alice In Wonderland. She's really going all out and tending to every detail.

Our first day went off perfectly. The kids seemed to have a great time, and the decorations and food didn't fail to impress.

The entrance to the children's room, aka: The Emerald City.

I got to be Dorothy! Hangin' with the Cowardly Lion and Tin Man.
(My mom drew and painted all the characters, the lollipops, and the doors. And she made my apron!)

The Scarecrow.

Ding Dong the Witch is Dead!

Just a taste of the food: Rainbow cupcakes.

Ruby slipper candy holders.

It was an awesome start to this year's program. My mom is truly the greatest! She's the best role model a daughter and best friend could have!
