Monkey's Salon Day.

So, the day after our Philly adventures, it was time for Monkey to experience the wonders of my salon, Before and After. Shameless plug for Before and After - they are in Trooper, Pa., and they are FABULOUS hairdressers, and equally FABULOUS people. So, I go to leave for the salon and cannot find Monkey and Stinky. Guess where they were? They had gotten into my car and were waiting for me on the dashboard. Silly monkeys!

The monkeys were very patient while we waited for our turn.

Monkey amused himself by checking out his current 'do in the mirror. Then he perused the hair products for sale, and picked out this one:
I couldn't figure out why monkey wanted to have "big sexy hair", but then I saw why...he is quite a flirt. He kept trying to flirt with the pretty girls, but I don't think he realized that it was only a poster.

Next, while I got my hair colored (not pictured, because it is too alarming), monkey decided to check out hair color options for himself. Which one do you like best?

1. Member of the Beatles hair...

2. Rainbow hair...

3. Or do blondes have more fun?

I think I like monkey with brown hair best. So, next thing I know, the monkeys were fooling around in the salon... Stinky decided to wash Monkey's hair,

Then, Monkey decides to try his hand at hairstyling:

Next, a latte and biscotti break!

After being refreshed with a snack, the monkeys proceeded with their fun...with dryer time. Stinky turned the dryer on for Monkey,

and then they decided to huddle together under the warmth. They decided they weren't warm enough yet...but then it was time to get down to business. Monkey had his own turn under the dryer.Monkey is also a very good reader. He promptly picked up this magazine:Then the monkeys said they needed to use the facilities. They were in there for quite a while, so I went in to investigate and found Stinky taking pictures of Monkey:

I shooed them out of the bathroom, and they made their way to the lobby. Look what Monkey found! Candy!!!!!

Ever the gentleman, Monkey shared his candy...

Finally, it was time to say goodbye. Monkey and Stinky had a great time. Here is their last pose from the salon. They wanted to advertise for Before and After.

Thanks to the staff at Before and After for being great sports and welcoming the sock monkeys with open arms. By the way, if you ever find yourself in Pa, check them out! 610-635-0539.

I can't believe it, but we forgot to get a picture of my finished hair. Oh well, the monkeys were cuter anyway. Thanks to Evan, my 6 year old, who shot a majority of these pictures.

A taste of today with Monkey. I made cookies last night, and came downstairs this morning to find this...looks like it will be an interesting day.

Those monkeys can really get into some "hairy" situations! (sorry, I couldn't resist)

I got a chuckle from the monkeys in the bathroom and was glad that Monkey wasn't taking pictures of Stinky in there... (I know... I need to get my head out of the gutter!)LOL! :)
