We had fun with your friend, Alex, today. Since it was Alex’s birthday, we picked y’all up from school early and headed over to the Coop playhouse. You loved every second of it!
This must be your lucky day… Thomas AND strawberries AND Hans the elf.
Sometimes we just need some table time… with trains because they make everything better.
We spent some time at Jungle Joe’s today. It was nice weather outside, but mama needed to rest a little, so this was the best compromise 🙂 You had so much fun playing with the bigger kids who were there.
Saturdays are made for the mall; really, they are. You were so good that I let you pick out a new Thomas the Train car. You got Merlin the Invisible, which is a shiny chrome three-car set.
We had to explain to you today the concept of not buying something every time we go to a store. Last time we were in Barnes & Noble playing with the Thomas the Tank Engine set, we ended up buying you a toy train or train car. This time, daddy had to explain that we were not going to buy you a train, and he had to make you okay with it. I think it was equally hard on you both!
We had a nice morning indoors because it was raining. Dad ventured out and got us a new rug, though!
