We had a great weekend. I hope yours was good as well. Saturday we got to sleep in a little (until almost 8:00!!) then we went with Mom's neighbor to help her pick blueberries. Colton really enjoy blueberry picking!! Last year he still way to small and couldn't even walk. This year he was just at the right to level to get the low branches and he was a great picker. He picked only the blue ones and put them right in his bucket (minus the 100 or so he ate LOL). He got to see a peacock and tried to catch it, but it was having none of that. That bird ran and Colton gave chase as fast as his little legs would go.
Sunday we got up and went to church and then headed out. I entered Colton into a beauty pageant (it sounds odd saying that for a boy so we will just call it a "contest!!). Registration started at 1:00 and Colton usually goes down for his nap from 1:00-3:00, so I was not quite sure how the day was going to go. As we were driving, he fell asleep, which was perfect. He slept all the way there and then once we got to the restaurant, I stayed in the car with him so he could sleep and Mom and Steve went in and ordered. He got to sleep for about an hour total and then I took him in to eat.
Once we got to the contest location, which was at the mall, we walked around and I went and registered him. I have never been to one of this things--I just watch Toddlers and Tiaras and laugh at the kids and parents. We walked around some more and then I went to get him dressed. I thought he looked MIGHTY handsome in his little outfit. I put him in a pair of navy chinos with a light blue chambert shirt with his tie and then an argyle vest over it. He was spiffy. When his number was called, he went right up on stage and waved at he judges, blew them kisses and smiled. He was competing against boys of all ages and some of those boys had definitely done this before!!
He then went into "American Wear", where he had to dress in red, white and blue. I put him a little red muscle shirt with his American flag bathing suit and navy crocs with his baseball hat and sunglasses. He went up there and danced and did great!!
He ended up winning American Wear, prettiest eyes, and was runner-up for Mr. Firecracker. He did good and it was a one-time only deal. It was just something to do until gets old enough to play baseball and football. I posted pictures on my Facebook page. I will try and get them uploaded on here tomorrow.
