Never underestimate your local library.
While CC was playing at the smaller tykes' playground at Pan Pacific Park on Monday, one of the moms told us we could catch storytime at the neighboring Fairfax Branch Library. Not only would there be books and storytelling, there would also be singing -- a CC must-do.
So we packed up our things and walked over with a few other moms and tots to catch what turned out to be the second-to-last day of Baby Summer Club, which concludes Monday, Aug. 17 at 4 p.m.
Please excuse the horrible, grainy pic I took on my BlackBerry, above, but you can see the librarians were really into entertaining the kids. They sang "Old MacDonald," "The Wheels on the Bus" and "If You're Happy and You Know It," all of which delighted CC and brought her to her feet.
Yeah, that's her up front. She was too excited to just sit, and luckily the other kids joined in, too.
While I was disappointed to learn we had missed so many Baby Summer Club meetings, it turns out the library is hosting Monday Morning Storytime, beginning Sept. 14 at 11:30 a.m.
We'll definitely be checking that out!
