Oh, The Places We Went

After dinner on July 11th I took care of a little business... in the bathroom... which M&D seem to prefer over the alternative for some reason. I'm a little indifferent but each time I have a successful... transaction... they reward me. It had been M&M's but I lost interest in those for a little while. Same goes with Popsicles but to incentivize this venture M&D threw out a number of bribes, one of which was a trip to GREEN APPLE FOR SOME ICE CREAM! As the bribes were flying one of the other items they offered up was a trip to my elementary school playground and much to M&D's disappointment, I chose the playground... despite have a swingset in my back yard. Sweet. Dad said we could play until it was dark out (which I later found out is totally subjective) so we had to get moving. He said we could walk over or drive over, highlighting that if we drove, I'd have more actual play time. I chose to walk at which point Dad started researching how to get a genetic test done - whatever that means.
Shortly after we got there a family from a street over showed up. In a hugely uncharacteristic move, Dad struck up a conversation with the other Dad. I don't know what they talked about because I was playing with... some boy whose name I don't remember (still need that genetic test Dad?) Said boy has a new little sister whose name is Abby. Somehow I remembered that one. All in all it was a pretty fun outing.

Here's a snapshot from the next day of M&D trying to do some more incentivizing. You may notice I'm not looking at the camera but that's because I was a little distracted.
They said if I had successful... transactions for two weeks that we could GO TO THE MOVIES AND WATCH BRAVE!
I mean, a red-headed female protagonist? This was a pretty easy sale for Disney!

For dinner Dad and I joined Aunt Darcy, Grandma & Grandpa Davenport at BD's Mongolian BBQ where AD & GmaD told us all about their fun trip to NYC!

To continue the homecoming I suggested a trip to Green Apple and amazingly got four takers!
When we finished our ice cream I asked GpaD if I could take his car for a spin and he was happy to oblige, especially since this version of "playing cars" doesn't cost him any quarters.
I'm sure you'll be shocked by this but I took everyone to Target. I love that place!

Remember, you can't take it with you, but you can lick it so no one else can take it when you're gone.

Until Later,
