Out and about on Friday...

What a busy day!! We had a fun play day for the afternoon up in the big city with a new homeschool friend and we had a few things to do before hand. Got the husband dropped off at work and we were off!

First stop was the big consignment sale that is help 2x a year and we picked up a few things...
A new toy for Dominic...and it's already a favorite! We also got a hiking carrier for Dominic.
Roller blades for the girls...
and yes, Kaitlyn got purple ones and Arianna got  pink ones...It was just like they knew we were coming!

Then it was over to Costco for a few couple of things. A fun ocean project for the girls to go along with their ocean unit.
and some summer stuff for Dominic.

After that we headed to the playdate and met up with our new friends. The girls had a BALL! The played with their little friend and are already wanting to know about meeting up with her again soon. I also have to mention...
Arianna disappeared to play on the swings on her own and before I knew it, she was bringing over a very nice lady from India to say hello. The lady told me that Arianna was a very nice, polite and respectful little girl and was just a joy (Arianna played with her and her family for a good half hour or more). Later when we were getting ready to leave we spoke with her again and she asked if I was the girls teacher. I said they were schooled at home, she than asked if I was the Mom and I smiled and said yes. She then asked a bit about homeschooling and seemed very curious that the kids didn't go to school at all. She did mention how nice the kids were and how respectful. They watched Dominic play for a bit and then when it was time to say good bye we all got hugs and kisses from her. Nanny (as the kids all called her) was a very fun lady to talk to and I wish I'd had more time to sit with her!

After all that it was time to pick up the husband from work and head home...It's been a fun but exhausting day!
