Staycation Day 6--getting things done

My big plan for the kids this morning was....drumroll....the DENTIST! Yes, I made dentist appointments for all 3 kiddos. I finally decided to change to a dentist closer to our new home, so the boys had never been here before. Since they had some anxiety about the dentist in the past, I didn't tell them where we were going when we got in the car (and oddly enough they didn't even ask). So when we walked in they just started playing with the toys in the waiting room and it was no big deal.

I didn't even go back with the boys to their cleanings/x-rays. Alyssa and I got to hang out and play for a little longer until it was time for her check-up.

After lunch and after Alyssa woke up from her nap, I took the kids to Sonic for Happy Hour (half-price drinks and slushes from 2-4 p.m.). We got 3 slushes and a small tater tots for only $3.03.

Then I took the kids to the library for the Passport to Adventure program. This month's country was the United Kingdom. A librarian from Wales first talked to the kids about all the places within the United Kingdom and told some stories about giants and the Loch Ness monster to keep them fascinated.

Then there were 4 craft tables where they got to make 4 different crafts that related to the country. At the end, they got a passport stamped.

The boys had a good time doing this. Next month the country is Italy, I think we'll try to make that one.

After dinner we played outside--bike riding, football, soccer, shovels?

And lastly, I rented the movie Captain America (for free at Redbox using the code "DVDONME"). Brian and Nathan are watching that right now.

Total spending for the week: $15.89 basketballs, $15.00 farm, $3.03 Sonic = $33.92.
