My thoughts were :
- fresh air
- guaranteed good naps
- homeschool fodder
- still might be crazy
We saw some beautiful flowers along the way
and some not so beautiful flowers, but the are SO fun to pick anyway...
I decided that I would use the Starbucks card that was slipped into my wallet by my rocking hubby, and the kids got samples. (before you call DHS - they were creme based, no cafe).
We dinned at Bales Thriftway on Baked Mac N Cheese, Corn dogs, Jojos and I found a turkey and bacon wrap with a berry sauce.
A trip to the rest room, Bananas, diapers and a treat for the walk home and to the cashier. BONUS diapers were on sale AND I had coupons!
We reloaded the stroller and headed home. I armed my walkers (Noah and Hannah) with bags to pick up garbage that they found along the road. A little dirty, but I figured the lesson in citizenship was of far greater value than clean hands.
Garbage can be fun and interesting....
and, I feel great after getting some exercise. I'm approximating the stroller, packed with two kids, diapers, 8 lbs of bananas, diaper bags and other sundries probably was at least 75 pounds - we have a decent hill too...I may need to make this a bi-weekly activity and might just shrink out of my fat clothes!
