Saturday mornings are usually pancake mornings where K helps me count then crack the eggs, mix ingredients in a bowl and flip our favorite homemade pancakes on our griddle before we start the day. Today, there was no time to spare as we headed over to the Santa Monica Pier for Saturday Morning’s Wake Up With the Waves. Every Saturday from 10am – noon, until May 24th, Michael Cladis is hosting a free interactive concert series for kids ages 1-8 on the pier! The event begins with children’s music and activity and then ends with a group of rotating musicians including Rhythm Child (K’s favorite ~ she fell in love with them at the Pablove event in February) that perform for the families.
This morning, K had the chance to meet Pacific Pier’s mascot Inky the purple Octopus…
Play with the giant colorful parachute that all the children enjoyed shaking, dancing under and sitting on top of…
Rock out with instruments as Michael Cladis played his guitar and sang songs like the Itsy Bitsy Spider, We Will Rock You and The Wheels On The Bus…
And enjoyed the featured songwriter David Tobocman before running off to the Pacific Park’s carnival of rides and games. We ended our morning at the carousel where K enjoyed watching and pointing out the different horses, goat and rabbit dancing around in circles to the music!
We can’t wait to wake up with the waves later this month and hope to see you there!
