Creative ways to pass time...

Today, I was the chauffeur for Michael & 3 of his preschool buddies(and our little Natalie). They went to a performance of Pippi Longstocking...lucky kids. Anyhoo, Natalie was not allowed to join the field trip, so I drove and had to find something to kill 1 1/2 hours before I had to go back and pick them up.
We took a scenic drive near the performance center(it is on the other side of town). How you like those blue skies?

We stopped at Target because I had a $15 gift card burning a hole in my pocket and let me just tell you, this store is now my new favorite...I wish I lived closer to it. But, before we go in we always have to take care of something very important. We have to count the red balls in front of the store.

and slide down every single one. Also, we HAD to pull our socks up as high as they could go...it had to be done.

Then after I survived the longest 25 minutes in the store(remember she is almost 3 and VERY independent!) I noticed a Starbucks drive-thru(you know, cause there are not many around...hee). And ordered my new favorite drink, thanks to Lori, Shaken Iced Tea Lemonade. YUM!
Then we played can you put your foot on top of your head,
Really we did.
And she really did.
After some rousing games of itsy-bitsy spider, pat-a-cake, and numerous Laurie Berkner songs...we played

Can you put your foot on your head AGAIN!

Yeah for you, Heather! I'm so glad you like the Shaken Iced Tea Lemonade! It's my second day with no soda and I'm thinking about you every time I pass a Sonic or a Starbucks.:)

Such cute pictures of your little angel! How could they not let her watch the play?? Well, at least you guys got a chance to go to Starbucks and Target- two of my favorites!:) Lori

I love Target! I would be seriously bummed out if I didn't live close to one, but then again our finances would be much better off if we didn't.
