Earlier this year a new toy store opened near us and Hannah has been itching to go. I wanted to go when I could offer her lots of time to explore and play and last Tuesday was that day.
As I slowly explored the store Hannah went from station to station playing with new and unique toys. There was some cool sand called ‘Sands Alive’ that was really neat but I was more than happy to leave it at the store as I think at home it would be all over the floor! She played with it for a long time but hasn’t talked about it since. Phew!
She had fun playing with it and I found it interesting to see her line each piece of furniture up against a wall. At first I wondered why and then I realized in our home that’s pretty much the way it is as it’s the best way to fit everything in to our smaller space. Heh – never really thought about it!
We enjoyed over 2 hours of playtime together at the toy store before I snuck in one small purchase as a surprise for a couple of days later into our vacation. It was fun to have the time to just wander, look at, touch and play with the toys. We had a great time together and finished our outing at one of our favourite restaurants – The Mandarin. I’d saved some gift cards Mom and Dad had given me to take Hannah for lunch and this ended up being the day. A great way to end our outing together!
