Coloring with the Bunny (Stripes Optional)

It was SUNNY with the BUNNY inside O’Doodle’s Today!  Peter Popped in, oh yea that’s Hopped  in (Correct but not alliterated) and Danced and Colored with the Kids.  Cookies were a hit too from BAKER STREET BREAD .  The kids went through over 150 cookies – Adults had their Share too!  My son and friends from La Salle helped out in the Role of the Rabbit. We’re OPEN Sunday 10 to 5 so stop in for some unplugged FUN!

"Eggs"elent Week!

“Be who you are and say what you feel, because those who mind don’t matter and those who matter don’t mind.”

~ Dr. Seuss  

   What a great week!  The sun came back and the light shined on Chestnut Hill!  We started off with 400 filled easter eggs at the nearby playground.  My friends son filled in for my youngest as Peter Rabbit.  The kids were so excited.  We seperated the kids into two groups since there were over 200 kids.   The little ones (4 and under) went first and were very methodic in apporaching each egg.  There motto seemed to me to be slow and steady ensures the egg.   The impatient older kids (5+) and parents eagerly awaited the there chance to pounce the larger section of the playground.  The count begain 10, 9 , 8,   oh well that’s as far as we got.  The Hunt for the older kids over… in less than a minute.  Complimentary consolations of Bakers Street Cookies awaited the eggless.  It was a great day for all!

My new friend and artistic talent Becky Leatherman Adams captured the day in this photo album             

Becky your the best!      Thanks look forward to more of the Good News!

Unplugged Fun


I had a real unplugged Saturday evening! The power went out and my three teenage kids – oops (My daughter is now twenty but still my little girl)….didn’t know what to do. No Laptop – no facebook – OMG – no TV or DVDs. To make matters worse for my youngest – his cell phone battery powered off. TOTALLY UNPLGLUGGED and Cold too!
The Unplugged fun began with a simple deck of cards. What would it be Crazy 8s, Golf or Secret (old games we played at the pool), Texas Holdem, Fish, WAR. Rummy – yep Rummy ran out. My daughter recomended Rummy 500. Heck the power was off – the candles were on and Play Began.
What a great night of old memories and new laughs. It was like being a kid again. Hey if your lookijng for unplugged things to do we have plenty to offer at O’Doodle’s. Believe board games are great and a great way of just chatting. It was refreshing to be Unplugged and ya know what after the lights came on we still played. My kids admitted that they really had a blast.
If you lost power how did you power your evening at home with the kids I’d love to here. Hopefully the start of a daily blog from the ToyDad!
