We have had a 5 day stretch of cold and rainy weather, so today’s sunshine was a nice change. The kids and I checked out the gardens this afternoon and found some new flowers blooming. Here are some pics of our finds.
Sam I did our weekly Trader Joe’s shopping trip this afternoon. There was a contest going on this week…if you can find Ramses in the store, you get a prize. Guess who found Ramses in the bread section – Samantha Shimpi! She was very proud, but kept telling the manager that she found the Tar Heel 🙂
Of course after getting her reward and balloon, she asked for another balloon in DOOK blue for her brother who was at speech. What a cool little lady!
As we were waiting at the stop light on the way home this afternoon, Aidan asked me to roll down his window. It was unseasonably warm, so I did as he asked (once I got the always required please 🙂 The next thing I know, Aidan is chatting it up with a police officer in the car next to us. Here is what Aidan had to say to our very friendly officer:
“My name is Aidan. This is my sister Sam. I was a good listener at school today. I did not do anything wrong, I promise. Are you a nice police officer? We are listening to Superman in our truck.”
What a funny little guy.
So the kids love to watch Big Daddy’s House on The Food Network. Tonight I made one of his dishes – spicy swiss chard. I told the kids we were eating “Big Daddy’s Spinach” and they gobbled up half of what I made! I took pictures so that Rahul would believe me (he is working late tonight).
Amazing…children will eat veggies if you use the right presentation. Thanks Big Daddy!
