And I got a blurry picture. Oh well.
O.K. So we didn't actually go out to celebrate Mercer Mayer's birthday. We went out to celebrate because friends from my husband's childhood now live in Northern Utah and were visiting Provo for a couple days. And since we live close enough to Provo, we got to meet up with them and have dinner together... on Mercer Mayer's birthday.
On the way home, we stopped by the Orem Library because we had a hold to pick up. While we were there another hold was put on the hold shelf- a book that Jr. Jr. asks about every time we go to the library. Every time we have to tell him that it isn't in yet, but it came today. Hooray.
Even though we were at the library just yesterday picking up Mercer Mayer books to celebrate his birthday, they didn't have the one I really wanted in. So I checked while we were there today. It wasn't on the shelf. So I checked the catalog and it said it was on the sorting cart. I looked and it was there. Hooray. What a great birthday surprise that was.
So when we got home and the kids got ready for bed, I got to read to them The Gingerbread Pirates (which Jr. Jr. had been waiting for for about a month) and Professor Wormbog in Search for the Zipperump-a-Zoo by Mercer Mayer... on his birthday.
Happy Birthday, Mercer Mayer. We had fun celebrating.
