Menards is Home Now

Home is where the decorations are.

After the pumpkin patch we stopped by Menards real quick on the way home. A section of our fence blew down and we wanted to price how much the new slats and posts would be.

While there we enjoyed looking at some of the Christmas decorations… a bit early, but fine, go ahead Menards, as long as I’m not setting up my tree yet I guess you can go ahead.

Mall Run

I can’t remember exactly why we headed out to the mall, I think it involved one of the kids needing shoes.

It gave us an opportunity for them to admire a giant teddy bear as we passed through the closing Herberger’s though.

And also a chance to admire a squishy face.

And a contented face.

Thrift Store Books

I can’t recall the occasion at this point, but in February we ventured out to the thrift store (they were probably having a book sale) and scored some amazing book deals (again).

I have no qualms with filling our house with books. Redflare finds some really awesome reads and they’re cheap!

Bus Stop Pickup

We don’t use kickstarter much, but when we do, and the things finally arrive, it’s a good time.

We supported some special layered, sifting litter boxes that are hiding behind Newbie on the stroller.

Redflare says everybody gave her some odd looks for using the stroller like a package cart, but it was quite an effective way to get them home.

The Luup people gave us an extra litter box as an apology for being a few months late.

Tired Gifts

The souvenir shop is the final stop on the zoo trip. Nana usually treats them to something small, just because.

I’ve tried to sneak her out without in the past, but she enjoys doing it for them.

They appreciate it (and the gifts Nana got them, these were actually from the dino gift shop) but you can tell they were also getting tired and hungry at this point.

It’s a little harder to say no when it’s officially Superman’s birthday.
