Fun Filled Friday

We had a fun filled Friday that I just had to share about. We did half a days worth of school and then took advantage of the beautiful sunny spring day. It was actually really warm today it reached 87 degrees! Tomorrow they say it might even reach 90. But back to today. Where we live, we have a great downtown area full of all sorts of little shops and boutiques. We haven't been able to just hang out and roam around for such a long time we decided it would be fun to explore some of the newer shops, look at all the artwork (we have so much artwork everywhere downtown including paintings that are in display cases on the walls) and just enjoy our town.
We discovered a root beer shop that opened up that serves root beer on tap. yummy! In the shop they had a time line of the history of soda pop. It was really cool and we made a game of finding when events happened. (Yep that counts as school so... I guess we can call it a field trip now.) We also went into a candy shop that has all the old candy and let the kids each pick out a candy. Then after walking around and Little Man getting a pretty bad nose bleed (an often occurrence for the poor guy) we decided to make one last stop to the local candy/ice cream shop. And lucky us it was "Happy Hour" and our ice cream was cheaper than we expected. Baby G got to enjoy her first ice cream cone and it was really fun watching her take licks and do the happy dance. I should have taken a picture but didn't think about it until just now. It was so fun to just take a quick break and relax.
The moral to this story, remember to enjoy what you have around you and that fun doesn't have to mean actually going somewhere.
Saturday... well... we could go to the farmer's market, walk/hike in the park (yes it is that big we have the option of either one), and as it will creep up to near 90 tomorrow, we could even splash in the creek. So much to do so little time and oh yeah the allergies here are triple most places and we are all dealing with them so... I guess we might just pick one thing to do tomorrow. *Ü*
