It's Magic

The kids came over unexpectedly on Sunday, what a nice surprise.  We were watching the Seahawks playing when there was a knock on the door.

It was the eldest Big, with magic card tricks in hand.  He's been obsessed with close-up magic for a the past few months.  I'm sure his parents were happy that we were his audience for a little while.

He did one of those Guess Which Card tricks and it unfortunately didn't work.  He heavily sighed and muttered "At least it didn't happen at school."   Bless his heart, it made me giggle.  I told him "You're right, C, it is better to practice on us."

Kevin doesn't have much experience with kids and is skeptical of magic so I would have to nudge him every once in a while.  While watching magic, he's always looking for the trick in them.  So, he watched out of the corner of his eye while also watching the game.  He played along pretty well and even managed to look impressed.

After C left, Kevin mentioned that while he could spot the trick, there was one that he just couldn't figure out.  It bothered him a little and that made me laugh.

Now, fast forward to Christmas.  He received 7 decks of cards and three magic kits.  The kits weren't hokey little kits either, but geared toward pre-to-young teens.  He freaked out.  Each kit had a specific trick that he wanted so badly.  It was so much fun to listen to him.

We ended the day with him doing card tricks on Kevin.  I have a great photo of Kevin looking very skeptically at him.

Who knows, maybe one day we will travel to Vegas not to race but to watch the Great Carsinni.
