Turns out the old caretaker wasn't the old caretaker after all, but an imposter who'd locked up the real caretaker at the lodge in the barn. Luckily the Girl Scouts came to the rescue just in time... I'm loving all these vintage scouting books!
Toben and I hit Costco and the grocery today to buy lots and lots of food to get ready for my sister's visit. I don't think I've ever bought so much food at once before! We filled the back of the Expedition and when we got home it took ages to put it all away.
But I've planned great menus and am excited about all the yummy things we'll eat while they're here. All in all, it's much cheaper than eating out and will be lots more fun for the kids to stay here than to go out. And since the weather has been so nice lately, I'm guessing we'll eat outside a bunch.
Kristen said Ava's eating real food--but not a lot of variety. So I stocked up on cheese, cheerios, and graham crackers--all of Ava's favorites.
I do love grocery shopping--especially when I'm not in a hurry and double especially when Toben comes along. I love looking at all the different kinds of produce and wandering up and down the aisles to see all the fun stuff to eat.
My mom has always said that she loves grocery shopping too--when she and my dad first got married, it was the only kind of shopping she did that she didn't feel guilty about. After all, they had to eat!
