Laughter Lives Tuesday

Laughter LivesThis post is part of "Laughter Lives! Tuesday" on the Riggs Family Blog. Check our their blog to read everyone else's "Laughter Lives!" posts.

So here goes:

Yesterday was a day off for work for me and daycare was closed for Madison. So we had a lazy morning and really nothing to do all day. I thought we could just browse through Target (my favorite store) and then get some groceries. As we were driving there, Madison noticed a park along the way. This is how the conversation went:

"Mommy, did you see that park?"

"Yes, we have played there before."

"Well, I have an idea!"

"OK, what is your idea?"

"We need to go to Starbucks."

"But we already had breakfast."

"No we won't get breakfast, you can get a coffee and you can buy me a chocolate milk and one of the little 'scomes' (scones). Then we can drive back to the park and you can hold my chocolate milk and my scome, while I play on the swings, so if I need a drink, you can have it ready for me!"

"Well, I don't think we can do that today, we are going to the grocery store and Target."

"No, mom we can do it today, just make the car drive to Starbucks first!"

Too funny!!

We had a fun weekend spent with my sister and nephew in Tahoe. We drove up on Saturday and just stopped off the side of the road and found a little area to play and "practice" sledding. Then stayed in Kings Beach, had a yummy dinner, did a little gambling (she won $100-lucky duck) and went to a sledding park on Sunday. The kids and adults, too had a blast going down the hills, making our little snowmen and even having a snowball fight.
