Bumblebee & a Train!

The day doesn’t get any better than this!  Today, I had to go pick up a few things for my classroom and do a little bit of shopping.  The kids and I had a grand, yet HOT time.  Actually, since we got the day started early, it wasn’t too bad.  Anyway, the absolute BEST part of the day was when we pulled in to the Mardel’s parking lot only to SEE Bumblebee (You know, the small yellow Autobot? He’s a Transformer).  I am SO GLAD I had my camera!  I’m tellin’ you!  This was EXCITING STUFF!  Brayden was in total agreement (even happy) to pose for me while I snapped away.  The only thing that cut this photo shoot short was my fear of the owner walking up.  Knowing me, I would have explained the story about Bumblebee being Brayden’s favorite Autobot E.V.E.R.  and how my sweet little son thinks he and Bumblebee have some sort of special ‘connection’ bc both their names start with letter ‘Bb’!  I would have gone on and on….AND on.  Who would want to deal with THAT?! SO, needless to say, I only snapped a few very quickly.  Aah!  This was complete greatness!

After school stuff-shopping we headed over to the mall for an early lunch!  Nealy and I reminded B about his encounter with the one-and-only. This is his serious face he gave us.  Too funny!

Oh, and of course Nealy had to eat a specialty sandwich.  She couldn’t have Sonic like B and me.  And yeah, she brought it in to Sonic to eat.  ….this girl of mine!

The specialty potato chip…just lightly salted (insert here: my eyes rolling to the heavens).

Here is the train part! Woo-Hoo!  We rode a motorized train around the park at the mall.  SO fun!  When it took off the “conductor” rang the bell.  Brayden was SO excited.  I was happy.  Nealy was worried someone she knew might see her.  Oh brother!  She truly was a really good sport during our outing today, I have to say.  (It never gets boring in my world…I didn’t say CRAZY…but, there is honestly never a dull moment).

…the beauty of summertime EQUALS no make-up and wearing your gym clothes all day.  What?  I’m cool like that. Ha!
