Out and About

Amanda pretty much got the day off yesterday.  We started the day with a late breakfast of apricot-stuffed french toast.  Basically, you make french toast sandwiches with cream cheese and apricot jam in the middle.  They were lovely.  I took Noah down to the basement and we played video games until around noon and then I took the kids out.

We didn't make it to Dick's Sporting Goods on Saturday, so that was our first stop.  We also popped into PetSmart, but the one at Brier Creek does not have a doggy day camp.  Lily enjoys watching the dogs get groomed though.  After that we went up to the Streets at Southpoint.  We got some smoothies for a late lunch and then hit some stores.  The trips to Justice are fun because they help Lily see the value of a dollar.  I tell her that she is welcome to spend her money on things there, but she never wants to do that.  After a couple of hours at the mall we hit Sam's Club and then came home for dinner.

I was pretty tired by the end of it all, but it was well worth it as Amanda got to enjoy the beautiful day and recharge a little bit.  It's a good thing too, because it's time to start a new week!
