If you've followed my blog for a bit you'll note I walk around a lot.Today was no exception and today my outing with the kiddies brought adventures in snail trees.I tried to get my dad out of the house today because a little vitamin D does a body good and some psychical effort wouldn't hurt him either.He only made it to the end of the block before he threw in the towel and rolled himself back home but the kids and I were just getting started.It was 3pm so nice and sunny,cool ocean breeze but the peak hours of the day were gone so out the window went the fear of our fair skinned selves being burned.
I've been able to wear dresses a lot more as my waist starts to VERY slowly slim down from having Wayland over a year ago but today I slummed it and wore jeans because...well,honestly because the kids didn't let me get a shower in so I didn't get to shave.I have to tell you when you go about a week or longer not wearing jeans you realize how horridly uncomfortable they are!
The plus side is I remember to grab my "new" sunglasses I picked up from that antique mall that had gone out of business.I'll take better photos of them in a future blog so you can appreciate the rhinestone detail to them.
The darker spots of the tree are where Heidi decided to start removing the snails.I'm not sure what about this tree the found so appealing but they did.
We ended up at 7-11,I remember we needed milk so it worked out and Heidi got her candy fix.I also noticed for a mere $2.99 they had a western ranger toy set filled with a air pump shotgun that shot those plastic darts out of,you know the kind that stick to glass or the television as we delightfully discovered.That little investment kept us entertained until the kids bedtime.I'm sure some would frown on the notion of letting my kids play with toy guns but hey its never too early to prepare them for the zombie apocalypse.Just something to think about.
