The Gong Show

Grandma Herbert heard about a sweet petting zoo so on the tenth, Mom, Dad, G&G H all checked it out.
It's actually put on by the Kansas City Symphony and it's an opportunity for kids (that's me) to see, touch and play the instruments. It was awesome!

I didn't catch the name of the disinfectant they used after each kid tried these... so who knows what I did catch. Sadly, I didn't get any of these guys to make any noise but there was plenty of noise to be made and I made plenty of it.

This guy was familiar. Though my version at home is colorful which I think is a nice touch.

Loud. Easy. A no brainer.

Uh, what am I, a 1 yr old?

Ya, mon.

Doh, that girl snared the drum out from under me.

Wood Block? Really? I hope this was either the first instrument ever made ("Hey, hitting this block makes noise.") or the last instrument ever made and the "inventor" had just stopped trying. Wood Block; so square.

My buddy Maddie showed up to play as well (her POV here.) I offered to help her play the triangle (another instrument who's sheet music imagine reads like:
"now....now....now.......now..now....now...now")


Before we wrapped things up G&G H tried to help me with the flute; still no noise. I think I'll just stick with the piano.

Not sure you can tell but this is me giving Maddie a hug goodbye. I'm not entirely sure she was thrilled with the idea but we hugged it out none the less.

After the zoo the five of us joined Grandma & Grandpa Davenport at Pizza Shoppe. After some pink stuff we headed to Olathe East for a Broadway Review. It was awesome and at the end, I even met the girl that played Mayzie LaBird in Seussical the Musical. Two words: Star Struck!

Remember, you can't take it with you, but you can lick it so no one else can take it when you're gone.

Until Later,
Avery
