Five on Friday!

1. My new coffee cups are my favorite purchase in a long while! Aren't they fun? If you're local, Cossart Designs downtown has them. If you're not local, you can find them HERE and I think I saw several SEC teams and stinkin' ole Georgia Tech.

2. Mr. Popper's Penguins. James and I picked this book up from the library last week and immediately breezed through three chapters. He thought it was really cute! He wants a sequel called Mr. Popper's Polar Bears. Creative kiddo! I remember reading this one in 3rd grade in Mrs. Rodgers' class. I may get all kinds of creative with him after we're done and do some fun penguin things. I'll share if we do.

3. Travel plans! Our fifth anniversary is coming up and while we're not doing a BIG trip, we are headed to the beach by ourselves! We are so looking forward to a few meals alone and laying by the pool and sitting on the beach and being able to READ A BOOK. We're going to be able to go to restaurants that aren't exactly kid-friendly. Stay out late if we want (ha! we'll probably be snoring by 8pm) and SLEEP LATE in the morning. I can't wait.

4. We had the best little spontaneous outing last night. We ran to the "bike store" as James has started calling anywhere that Eddie goes to look for a bike to finally purchase Eddie's Father's Day gift and the boys and I walked all over Dick's Sporting Goods looking at all the various things. They enjoyed it and everyone behaved so that's a WIN in my book. Then we walked down to my very favorite Mexican place where we stuffed our faces (Will ate all of his and half of James') and then headed home. It was a fun little Thursday night out! (Seriously, Thursday night is my favorite night to eat out.)

5. Library activities! It's no secret that the library is one of my favorite places to take my boys. It is FREE, reading is fantastic, and they have lots going on - especially during the summer. This week the library had a puppeteer on Wednesday and it was so fun. We got there early but we read to keep ourselves occupied and then watched the puppeteer set up. BOTH boys were perfect. It helped that there was a lot going on. We were at the library from 2:45-5:00! The story was a different version of Jack and the Beanstalk. James thought it was really funny and even Will laughed at the funny characters. We especially liked when the puppeteer (David) came out at the end to show exactly how he worked all of the puppets and explained that he was the only puppeteer for the show. I knew, but James didn't and he was really interested in that. If you're in the southeast, specifically Georgia, check his website to see if he's coming to a library near you. (He does a LOT in the Roswell area.)
