The library...Abigail would take a truckload of books every time if I let her. :)
David was in the middle of picking books when he heard the siren call of construction work (our library is being renovated)...he spent the rest of the time watching them dump gravel and run the compactor.
They both earned free Chik-Fil-A meals by completing the reading requirements at the library's Summer Reading Program (nine chapter books each -- great job, guys!). I took them to a special Chik-Fil-A that we'd never been to before...it's called the Dwarf House and the kids loved entering through the pint-sized front door!
A highlight of the day for me...a quilt shop! I'd never been to this one before and I thoroughly enjoyed it. (And I found the fabric that I was after...peach tone-on-tone for Abigail's quilt. It was slim pickings, even at the quilt shop...apparently peach went out with the 1980s and nobody but me wants any these days?!) David insisted that he should take a picture of me there...all of the excuses I wanted to offer him for not wanting to be in the picture were ones that I KNEW would come back to bite me the next time I wanted a picture of him...so I sat nicely!!!
Our last stop was to pick up our friends' bird, who is staying with us while they're on vacation. She's very sweet and no trouble to keep.
Mindy is quite fascinated with the new houseguest. I think she is more curious than anything (although I do not plan to test that theory!). I am pretty sure she is whispering, "Come over here and let me kiss you, little bird!" :)
