How'd it go:

We ended up having to move inside, so I tweaked things a little bit. I put Nobody Hugs a Cactus towards the end, added a few music wiggle tunes and replaced Silly Suzy Goose with I Am a Gentle Goldfish, which I love as a calm down book. Even with the craziness of the changes, we had over a 100 people attend and it was awesome!

That's all for now!
