on tuesday, we were back at the beach, but this time with friends.
the varlands joined us. as well as my long lost friend anna and three of her kiddos, but i didn’t get any pictures of them, because it was crazytown. but i managed a few of the varland kids and my kids.
on wednesday, my mom was off and we went on an adventure to east aurora.
our first stop was the explore n more children’s museum. it was very small, but super cute.
they were having a special “tinkering” workshop for the kiddos. they pretty much had all manner of recycled boxes and bottles, glue, tape, screws, styrofoam scraps, old cds and general random items for creating whatever your little heart desired.
then we walked over to vidlers five and dime. always a favorite.
we capped off our visit with a stop at the caboose, a super cute ice cream shop that operates out of an old train caboose. there’s also a little model train the circles around the top, which captured the attention of hazel and she was mesmerized.
we made the country drive back to blah-tavia, where we hired my mom’s friend’s daughter to hang with hazel, while we took the older kids to see “inside out” at the batavia mall movie theatre. and then, our day of fun and adventure was over.
