Play doh, letters and ice cream
Today we hung out at home all morning except for our daily walk of the dog and stop at the park. It is still really hot out here. It was one of those days where we played a lot of pretend kitchen, play doh, and Jake and I worked on his letters some. The kids behaved well all day and we were going a little stir crazy by the time Emma Mae woke up from her nap.
So, I felt a little treat was in order. I took the kids to this cute little local drug store/ice cream parlor. It's the kind of place with the bar you can sit at and everything. They love going there because they always think they're going to see this lady named Bonnie who was working the first time they were there. For some reason they loved her. I wasn't there that time so I don't know what Bonnie has that no one else has! We've been back twice and had different wait staff both times who were all adorable, but the kids still want to see their Bonnie. They did enjoy their crazy colored ice cream (red/yellow/white) and ended up wearing a lot of it home. Jake, of course, wore his Spiderman costume under his real clothes and was quite a big hit there.
I decided after the ice cream to tempt fate and take my kids to WalMart with me because we were completely out of milk. We looked at all of the Halloween decorations, made a pass by the fish, and managed to get out of WalMart with no one getting in severe trouble. The times, they are a changin'?
