There were a lot of little things that I wanted to do which made for a jam packed day. To start the day, Barnes and Noble had story time for kids. Biscuit the puppy made a visit to the kids. My youngest loves dogs and Biscuit; so she was very excited to see him. They also listened to Biscuit stories and colored a Biscuit page.
After story time, we went to Home Depot to do their monthly Kids Workshop. They were making heart shelves. My oldest loves hearts and she was very excited to build her shelf and paint it when we got home.
We ate a quick lunch and back out again to go to the Animal Presentation at Placerita Canyon Nature Center. This did not appeal to my oldest; but my husband was interested in checking it out. It is an hour long presentation and brought out and talked about some kind of bird, a snake, taranchilla, and a skunk. It was interesting; but both the girls were bored and wanted to leave. We didn't stick around for the last animal.
After the animal show, we went to McDonald's to get the girls a chocolate fudge sundae treat. We are doing 'Kids of Character' at home to be kind. My oldest got enough stamps to pick a treat; and she chose ice cream.
Once the ice cream was scarfed down, it was time to go to Castle Park for a birthday party, where the kids had fun playing skeeball, eating pizza and cake and golfing.
After all the days activity, the girls still had a ton of energy in the evening. I guess all the sugar they ate didn't help any.
