Pete The Cat
I was checking out the library activities and noticed that Pete the Cat was coming to our library. Chloe's teacher introduced us to Pete the Cat and she loves his books. They're lots of fun and there's a video on YouTube of the authors performing one of the books (Pete The Cat Loves His White Shoes) at a library that Chloe really loves. The library activity we attended was really cute. First, the librarian read the White Shoes book and then Pete made his big entrance. Each family received a number on the way in and they had us take turns entering the special room to meet Pete the Cat. I really liked that because I didn't have to worry about pushy kids knocking Chloe down to get to him. As we waited they had several crafts for the kids to do.
Dave goes to Lowe's just about every weekend. He's always working on something around the house. The other week I decided we'd all go with him. Of course, when Dave goes to Lowe's alone it takes him 5 minutes to get out the door. When we all go it takes me a good 40 minutes to get myself and the girls ready and then another 10 minutes to get out the door. But Dave was very patient and we all arrived at Lowe's for our shopping adventure. He was shopping for a new vent/light for the girls' bathroom. It took a while to get to the bathroom lights because we had to climb all over the riding lawn mowers on the way. After picking one we wandered upon a free kids clinic on building monster trucks. We learned that they have these "clinics" regularly and all we did was grab a couple of packets, pick a table, and get to work. They loved it! Dave guided Solana while Chloe worked on her own creation. I tried to keep Chloe interested and happy while snapping some fun pictures. This was way more fun than sitting at home!
