After a nice morning of 70 degree weather, where the girls and I enjoyed eating an iced lemon cake at Starbucks, picking up some new books at the book store, playing at the toy store (Toys & Co.), and seeing all the animals at Pet Smart...it was a lovely day, until...we ventured over to Chick-Fil-A. We got there at 11:30, and the place was a mad house! I have never seen so many kiddos running around, while we tried to eat our lunch. And then the play area was an even crazier story!? E just stood there taking it all in, about twenty-five kids playing and screaming, running around, while W attempted to play and climb. She ended up climbing to the very top of the jungle gym, and then wouldn't come down. "I'm stuck, Mama!" were her precise words. After much coaxing, and help from the bigger kids, she made it back down...just in time for us to get out of the pure chaos.
W has always asked to go to Chick-Fil-A's play area, whenever we've driven by it, and I've always told her that we'll go one day, when we remember to wear our socks. Well, we brought our socks today...but I think everyday after this experience, the socks will be "purposefully" left at home! Whew! Now, don't get me wrong, I love Chick-Fil-A, we'll just be choosing the drive-thru from now...
So I bet you can guess where I'll be this afternoon, finishing up The Help, while the girls nap!
Happy Wednesday, Y'all!
