It's been just too long since we've had a real honest-to-goodness Fried Egg Friday, but today... we made up for the ones we missed! :-) Daddy Bug is coming home tomorrow, and it felt like a day to celebrate.
First we had our fried egg breakfast (Friday = Fried Egg... get it?) original Clayton idea.
Then we loaded into the van and went to the Library. This was my first time in more than ten years, and the first time ever for my Bugletts (don't keel over Mommy Reg!). I have heard that the Library in our town is exceptional, and I would have to say I wasn't disappointed. They have a soundproof room for the children with all the children's books and activities. My children were mesmerized by the whole experience and especially the short door just for little people - problem was, who opens the tall door for momma and stroller?
After we left the Library we went to Starbucks and ordered a Venti Strawberries and Cream Frappuccino divided three ways, and a Java Chip for me and Clay to share. Turned out that Carolina has a sweet tooth too!
Next we walked across the parking lot to the... Dun, duh-dun dun... DOLLAR STORE! (Where every dream is within reach for the little person's income) Yesterday Clay actually said to me "Mom, I wish I lived back when there was a Nickle Store!" I guess the Dollar Tree is a close as we get to that today:-) Zack bought a piece of poster board, Clay bought a rubber ball and paddle, Olivia bought a fuzzy purple snake, and Susanna had already set her heart and sights on buying a stapler (?) and that's just what she did!
We then stopped into Office Max and bought file folders to make lap-books (haven't done this ourselves yet, but the children are very excited!) - did I redeem myself Mommy Reg?
We then loaded into the van and headed for home where commenced lunch and some resting, and tonight... perhaps a little party with a movie from the Library? I think maybe... :-)
A very successful Fired Egg Friday, and one I'd certainly repeat in the future!
