Our past week was filled with some new experiences.
Katie got her first ice cream off of an ice cream truck! I remember the ol’ ice cream truck coming around our neighborhood growing up, so as soon as I heard the song, I ran in and got her (and Andrew to take pictures, of course.) Who knew 4 ice creams would cost $7.00. Yikes! I think we’ll be sticking to our store-bought treats from now on.
The circus was in town and we got some of the cheapie nosebleed tickets. There was a preshow where we were able to go down to the floor and see some of the acts up close and even take pictures with the performers. During the elephant show, one started pooping, then it set off a chain reaction. Next thing you know, EVERY SINGLE elephant was doing it’s thing, and there were people out there with shovels during the whole act. The audience was howling. Way too funny.
Katie started her swimming lessons yesterday. One down, 8 to go. She really enjoyed it, and didn’t want to leave. We go back today for class #2.
On an unhappy note, we helped my mom get my grandpa’s house ready for an estate sale. The good news: we were able to clear out and sell many items. The bad news: there’s still a lot more to do. Wish us luck.
