I got Halle up at 8:00 and she hardly opened her eyes. I put her on the couch so that I could drink the aforementioned coffee and she said "it's not comforble". So she fell into a crumpled heap in the floor. Very cute but she's foiling my attempt at a schedule. And I'm not staying up until midnight tonight.
Back to the week at my parent's house. The first day we spent mostly at Best Buy. Well, it seemed that way anyway. Thankfully they had a Wii set up for demonstration and the girls and I played Mario Cart. It was really fun; we should get one of those someday.
The next day we spent mostly at Bass Pro Shop. Normally it's not my cup of tea but out of deference to my dad I thought we'd check it out. He usually spends hours sitting on mall benches or taking naps in his car while we shop with my mom so I thought this was a nice compromise. And I actually, really, had a lot of fun. This particular store is enormous (bigger than the one in Nashville) and had an eating area. Dad got the girls ice cream cones and we sat at a table and watched mom and Chloe play checkers and talked for quite a while. We spent longer than we meant to there. And then we headed off to meet my Aunt and Uncle for dinner.
