July 3, 2007 Part 2

We finally got out of the house and went to the mall this morning. It was our first trip to the mall since our sons have been home and it went very well.

The boys found the experience interesting and especially enjoyed being able to see the people downstairs through the glass rail/barrier thing, as we were strolling along upstairs.

The boys were starting to get a bit restless after a little shopping so we went to the little kids playground that our mall has. I knew it was there but had never really paid much attention to what it was like. It was really nice for a quick play time and I'm sure we will be regular visitors.

They also really enjoyed the elevator, which has glass on three sides so they could watch as we went up and down.

When we got home it was nap time, so I quickly fixed them a chicken pot pie. They ate most of it but the funniest thing was, when Nick was almost done, he picked out the rest of the peas and carrots and ate them and left the rest of the crust. These veggie-loving boys, I am continually amazed at their veggie eating.

Bob (the tomato) and Larry (the cucumber) those are the 2 main ones. There's also Junior (the asparagus). That's all I remember.

The mall trip sounds fun. Sounds like the boys did very well. Great bargains.

Lea, I'm so glad you got to get out of the house yesterday. You need that. I'm glad the boys got to play. I'm also glad you got good bargains. Those are always very appreciated. I think it's so funny that N fell asleep on the way home from the mall. He may be the type that sleeps a lot when he gets older. I think the veggie nicknames are a good idea. It doesn't seem right calling them B and N.

I'm glad you all got out of the house! Yay for great deals!! I agree finding nicknames sounds like a good idea! I hope you all have a wonderful 4th of July!

oh, *I* can cover you on veggietales names. You tell me the veggie and I'll tell you the name. Carrot? Asparagas? Egg Plant? French Pea?

Your Independence day sounds delightful. I let go of any idea's I have about nutrition for the kids on those days. Everyone is always poking something sweet into their mouths. lol.

I love veggietales! Hmmm...from what you've said about your boys, I'd go with Jimmy and Jerry as the boys' veggie names. (Although Bob and Larry would be more readily recognizable...)

(The French peas crack me up!)
