summer breakfast + spot the dog

Photobucket

Photobucket
i was unexpectedly spot the dog at work on saturday! i have never been inside one of those costumes before, but i can tell you, it was very hot, and i could only see a sliver of the floor through the mouth. but the children were happy and climbed all over me all through story time. i crack up looking at this picture - i had no idea at the time that there were two boys sitting on both sides of me.

Photobucket
