Thursday

Today was a pretty fun (free) day around town. My niece and nephews were at my house, and I just couldn't sit around any longer. I packed up Ella and Preston, and headed to the library (leaving their grandma with the babe). I told the kids they had to wait to see if I could check out books though, because my card was so old. When we got there I showed the lady my card, with the reaction "Wow, you definitely need an updated card, by the looks of it" as she looks at the kids...I replied "They're my niece and nephew, but you're right. I definitely need a new card". We had a lot of fun, and read great books. After that we made a quick stop at the playground, and headed for our free dessert (suckers at the pharmacy). I love these kids so much. My favorite question today was from Preston: "Mal-lurie, does Honey Bunches of Oats come from honey?" I explained that there is honey on the the oats. Then he asks "How do they make Shredded Wheat?" and then they just asked about all kinds of cereal. I stopped the conversation when "Where does Life come from?" Kinda felt like a "Where do babies come from?" question, so I turned the music up, and watched the kids make their crazy faces:
