Mason Meets Llama Llama

For over a year, we read Llama Llama Nighty Night before Mason went to bed. Every single night. Mason enjoys other Llama Llama books as well (his favorite probably being “Llama Llama Time to Share”) and I’m a fan of the big camelid myself. So when I saw that Llama Llama was coming to our local (bigger) library for the 10000 Books Before Kindergarten kick-off, I knew we had to be there!

The library was set up with several activity stations to pass the twenty minutes or so before the guest of honor arrived.

Mason worked on a puzzle

And worked at the stamping station

He also checked out the gerbils, which were SUPER exciting this day because they were both awake and out “exercising” (aka running on their wheel)

Then along came Llama Llama. Mason wasn’t as excited as I expected (and even twenty minutes into the visit asked “When do I get my surprise!?” #fail) but it was still fun.

They played with Playdough

Llama Llama attempted story time but no one came. LOL

We had to bribe him into giving Llama Llama the world’s fastest hug. This wasn’t the photo I had envisioned but that’s preschoolers for you I guess.

And then Llama Llama and Mason did a puzzle together.

Llama Llama had such personality and she made SuperDad and I laugh way harder than she probably should have

All three puzzles they completed warranted a celebration

We had a great time meeting Llama Llama and are so happy our library offers such fun programs. Have your kids ever met any literary characters?

    That looks like so much fun – and it doesn’t look like there were too many people were there… Also? Love that you used the word “camelid,” although I thought Llama Llama was a boy.

      Well Llama LLama the character is a boy (at least I’ve always thought so!) but the person it the costume was definitely female. Therefore, I struggled with the sex of Llama Llama all through this post LOL

    This is so cute and funny and adorable all at the same time. It made me think of how when kids see things they like on tv in person, they tend to be afraid. I never see a 3 year old or 4 year old happy to take a pic with Santa for example. There is one of me with him and I look scared lol. I’m glad that he ended up enjoying his time with Llama Llama after a while. Sounds like the whole experience was great. Thanks for sharing with us at Countdown in Style! Don’t forget to stop by Friday to see if you are featured! xo

      I am resisting the urge to point you towards my Santa pictures – Mason has loved Santa basically ever since his 2nd Christmas (he was only 9 months old at his first Christmas, so he was like “Huh?” back then)

      He is, however, randomly scared of people in costume. He’ll dance and hug one and then five minutes later be horrified by another. Toddler/preschooler logic makes no sense to me!
