Hero Husband and Super Son are tired.
Their follicles have been working overtime
growing out luscious manes of hair for me to run my hands through.
Saturday was the day that they had working toward
the day their hair would be cast off their scalps and leave them to be sunburned.
All in the name of a good cause.
Children's Cancer Research.
First there was a parade
where even horses can get caught at a red light
we passed the big bat on the bridge
The mounted cavalry from Fort Hood were next to Hero Husband's engine
They were smiley guys and liked having their pictures taken.
There was some time to kill after the parade before the clippers actually started whirring so we went to the children's museum for some playtime.
#2 and J made "tamales" at the mi familia exhibit
These are much easier to make than real tamales, but likely not as tasty
K had a snack
and then we went back to the pub to make my boys bald.
Here we go Super Son... Say goodbye to your hair
Ohhh it tickles
No Mamma we won't be stopping at a mohawk even though it looks cool
Whew where did that breeze come from
Dad, you look...bald! How do I look?
Bald. Super Son, you look bald.
And it is a beautiful thing.
