Way Back When-esday: If You Give a Mom a Camera

Dateline: June 10, 2006
Twins' Age: 4 and a half

If you give a mom a camera, she'll document her twins loving up on all their fictional favorites as they make guest appearances Barnes & Noble. Now that the kids are in school, unfortunately we can't make most of the storybook celebrity sightings. Seeing these images takes me "Way Back" this Wednesday!

What takes you down memory lane this Way Back When-esday? Post a picture, tell the tale and share in the web-wide reverie! Be sure to add your URL in a comment here so others can come by and enjoy the remembrances.
***Mr. Linky is BACK!***

We don't have a B&N close (I'm typically an Amazon girl anyway) but wow what fun things for little ones to enjoy! Darren's expression looks like "wow, Mom is this real??"

We're playing along this week:

I followed a comment from Laura's Musings blog and came across this post which is very similar to one I did in February. Further proof that great minds think alike! I'll have to come back and look around longer, later.

If you give a mom a camera, lol!

I recognize that mouse! When I was teaching Laura Numeroff was at the National First Grade Teacher's Convention and went to a seminar she gave, such a funny lady! Love her books!

Jolene said...

I love it, what a great experience! This are still a favorite one of our stories :)

Barbara Manatee said...

looks like lots of fun, but I'm pretty sure my two would be terrified! They have yet to enjoy any costumed character...

Nancy said...

oh! Some of our favorite books around here. (That moose one makes me laugh every single time...) How cool is it that the characters visit your area!! Hmm...maybe I should check that out around here.
