Fun Find!

We had a great day today! We all got up early and got going because we had a lot planned. Often this is not the easiest for the little man but he did great!

Our first stop was Creative Learning Toys which happens to be our FAVORITE toy store. They were having their Annual Kids Flea Market, where kids can set up a little booth, garage sale style, and sell their toys they have grown out of! We found a few fun items including Great States Junior , 3 Geronimo Stilton books , and a Toy weed trimmer! I think we spent about $8.

Next we scooted off to the John Ball Zoo for their Animal Enrichment Day! They spend the day going to the different animal areas giving them special treats and talking a bit about them. So fun to see, also gives the audience a chance to see some of the more "shy" animals. Also got a chance to FINALLY see the new lion exhibit!

We also ate lunch at one of our favorite restaurants Qdoba, I highly recommend taking advantage of their loyalty card if you like to eat there. We get coupons once in a while and earn free meals regularly.

We finished the afternoon off with Josh roller skating, for the first time, in our driveway!

He is now upstairs napping (as is Daddy) and we have a surprise campfire planned for tonight!

I just love weekends when we have nothing really planned but get to fill it with stuff we want to do!

Hope you all are having a wonderful weekend, as well!

Hey Shannon I saw your comment on sycamore stirrings about the beefed up wasps. They are cicada killers, no joke. We have them here in my neck of the woods, they bury in the ground and if you watch them you might actually see them catch a cicada. Kind of cool, my 12 year old has opened my eyes to the wonders of bugs, yuck.
