Leave it to my mom to venture where I never have before! This morning she took the triplets to Lowe's for one of their kid-project days. They made little school buses (one of the kids' favorite things) out of wood. I'm sure there weren't too many other two year olds, especially in groups of three. Then she decided to take them into McDonald's, alone, at lunchtime, on a Saturday! Go Grandma! I guess it went okay...they came home with smiles, schoolbuses, and tales of perhaps, some icecream? Allie and I had a quiet morning which ended with a first for her...a grilled cheese sandwhich! She LOVED it! Then before the triplets invaded, I let her do something that all 9 month olds should do! Play in the tupperware drawer! I used to do this when Eli, Cara, and Brady were around her age and it was garaunteed entertainment for at least 20 minutes, followed by garaunteed pick-up for 10. She was thrilled to have such a wonderful place to explore without any 2 year olds grabbing things from her hands and pushing her aside. Look at the joy on her face!
By the way...2 weeks from tonight we will be all set up for our Alex's Lemonade Stand! Can't wait!
