Ruth FINALLY fell asleep (it was about a 45 min drive). And when we got home, she slept more. It was much later that evening that I discovered she was actually running a low grade fever. So I ran to Wal-Mart and grabbed a thermometer and some infant Tylenol (C only had Children's on hand - which I didn't know the dosage for Ruth).
I do have a funny Wal-Mart story - which I will tell in a minute.
I should back up and mention that Rebekah was a bit obsessed with this cook book C had. It was a Cheerio cook book and for some reason she really wanted to make something out of it. Top it off, but Miss A and Rebekah spent A LOT of time talking about 'a party'. They made hats AND invitations and she was insisting we needed some snacks. (Well...honestly a party is only as good as its snacks...we ALL know that!)
She finally found a recipe that C actually had everything already. So we agreed to go ahead and make them with the girls. They were frozen yogurt covered bananas on a stick.
We gathered up all the ingredients only find that she couldn't find the straws (which is what we originally intended to use). But no worries - improvisation to the rescue!
|Getting all those ingredients set out!|
|Isn't that the cutest belly ever?|
|This bananna is looking awfully good...perhaps I should make sure it tastes good?|
|Cooking is messy business!|
While the girls were waiting on their snack, they went back to art. I tell you - these two were certain two peas in a pod! They both loved creating! They made ALL KINDS of stuff. I think here they discovered the paper purse...
Ruth was a big fan of the kiddo kitchen and the kid-sized table. She enjoyed coloring there...or just sitting there. We had a bath here...
When the Cheerio yogurt covered frozen bananas were done the girls eagerly gave them a try. I don't recall whether Miss A enjoyed them or not - but Rebekah wasn't a huge fan. I found it pretty hilarious actually. I think she talked them up too much in her head.
After all that fun, C read to the girls. I just love the expression on her face here...she gets into her books. :)
So - funny Walmart story. (BTW - this isn't censored. If you are male, you might want to just skip to the end. Hey - don't say I didn't warn you!)
I bought a thermometer (for the drive home), infant Tylenol and I also bought some tampons. I had expected AF to show up the next day, and realized I didn't bring supplies. I'm checking out and there is a youngish girl there. I'd say teen, but I'm getting old. The teens these days look like little kids to me and college kids look like teens. :-P (Shoot, some of the new college graduates we have been getting at work seem like kids! Creeeeeek...yep, that was my bones!)
She looks at my purchases and says "Fun night planned?" I just starred at her. Looked at my purchases. Looked at her again...and said "Uh no." I really was speechless and kind of wondered what kind of fun they have in Co! :-)
That wraps up our Denver trip. It was entirely TOO SHORT but certainly packed with fun. We headed out early the next morning - to make it home just in time to repack and head off to the lake for a night. Why yes - while our Denver trip was done our traveling was not!
