And it is so dark this morning! Daylight savings time is here and while this particular morning is tough, I love that it is back to being light till 7:00 pm, and later.
This weekend saw the last hurrah for Lillie's 10th birthday. Just before her last hurrah, she got to spent the night with her MLP club for another friend's 10th birthday. Lillie is living a fun life for sure! Back to her last hurrah...a trip to Build-a-Bear! Yes, at first glance you may be thinking that Lillie is getting too old for Build-a-Bear...at least that was my initial thought, but there is some history here. The last time we were in Disney Land we walked right by a Build-a-bear studio several time per day. Lillie was torn because she really wanted to spend her money there, but she really knew she should spend her money on Disney Land type stuff. So, she skipped Build-a-Bear when we promised to take her to one up here. She reminded me every few weeks for most of the last year, and I with her birthday we finally made it happen.
Lillie, Hansen, and myself squeezed into the pick-up truck for a trip to Tacoma Mall (the closest Build-a-Bear) and an adventure that was really a very fun day.
The staffer that helped us was super. Here she is stuffing the bear, or bringing it to life. She even had Lillie choose a little heart and rub it, kiss it, and give it good bear qualities. Lillie chose not to give this bear a voice...phew!
Also this weekend was Preston's first high school soccer game of the new year. His team played in a jamboree where they played two 20 minute games. They lost their first game and won their second. Preston had a good couple of games and really seems to enjoy this team this season.
Hansen spent some time shopping for a new bow. He and I both purchased new bows. He ordered a very cool wooden recurve take-down style bow, and I ordered a cheap fiberglass bow that can be used left or right handed, so if Preston and/or Lillie want to try it some day (both lefties) it will work for them. I also put the one he had previously ordered back in the mail to be returned. We are hopefully on our way to some fun archery times ahead. And with the new lower powered bows, the back yard range will be opened for use...so very cool.
See you tomorrow.
