You're free Genie

Not sure why the passing of Robin Williams is hitting me quite like it is - It's not like I've been obsessed, seeing all his movies over the years, going out of my way to make sure I catch all his movies.  In fact there's quite a few that I haven't seen and will now make a point to watch.

I never saw Good Morning Vietnam, Hook or even remember him in Fern Gully.  I wasn't a big fan of Happy Feet either.  But I remember Aladdin, Mrs. Doubtfire, Nine Months, The Birdcage, Patch Adams, Jack (what a heart breaker that movie was!), Good Will Hunting, Night at the Museum and the sequel.

A few of my favorites were Aladdin, Mrs. Doubtfire, The Birdcage and Patch Adams.  I remember watching Aladdin and Mrs. Doubtfire over and over again as a kid.  When I got older, Birdcage was a go-to for when I needed a comedy.  He was awesome in that, I don't think there's any role he couldn't have played - and played well.  Patch Adams was another that I could watch on a loop, even though it made me cry (shh, keep that to yourself).

Last night I fell asleep watching Aladdin, and restarting it each time I woke up through the night and again this morning.  It's something that I plan on forcing Boog to watch while he's playing, so he gets interested in it.  That's the only way to get him into something new lol.  When he's a little older, Night at the Museum will be introduced and hopefully become a favorite of his too.

Fun at the Fair

This is the male lion that was part of the big cat show at the fair

Fun on the merry go round

Fair food!  Corn dog and fries for lunch

Look at that grin!

He got a Transformer name plaque - even the letters have Transformers in them

He tried super hard to stay awake - but we'd been up since 5:30 that morning
