A Dollar Store Quest

When you have three kids and no car during the day, any outing is quite an ordeal. But we can't just stay home all the time! Especially when the weather is as gorgeous as it has been the last few days. 

Today, Sarah and James each took a dollar from their piggy banks (OK, so I took two from James' bank because Sarah didn't quite have a dollar in hers...shh! Don't tell him!), and we walked to the dollar store.

They loved being able to pick whatever they wanted and then they especially loved paying for their choices all by themselves.

I'd say it was a successful quest.

James is getting better at walking longer distances. This one was 1.4 miles round trip, not including walking the aisles at the store. And he only traded places with Sarah in the stroller for a couple minutes on the way back. Hooray for getting outside!

What a fun Mom!! That was such a great idea. Only a dollar each and two very happy kids!

I love that they each have their own receipt. What a fun thing to do! Maybe we can do the same thing here. :)
