Clifford the Big Red Dog
Last week my neighbor and I did the book fair at the elementary school. We had a family night on Wednesday and our big promotion item was that Clifford the Big Red Dog was going to be there! Now mind you, that just means that Scholastic sends us the Clifford costume and we find someone to dress up in it. Wednesday night came and my neighbors friends, who were supposed to come be Clifford, hadn't shown up yet. We had lots of kids there with their parents waiting to take a picture with Clifford, so I finally got convinced to put on the costume to appease everyone. The funny part was my kids didn't know it was me in the suit, so they were a little hesitant to come stand by me. Zach wouldn't come near me at all. It was pretty fun, except for the fact I was dripping sweat after 10 minutes in the thing. I spent about 30 minutes as Clifford before I had to get out and let someone else have a try.
