I got to go away for an overnight scrapbooking event with some church friends Friday night. I didn't actually do scrapbooking (blogging is as close as I get to that!), but a few other non-crafters and I had a good time anyway. While I was away, Greg and the kids were on their own! Greg took the kids to a nearby sporting goods store to hang out on Saturday morning. They invited Lydia and her dad and little brother to go along (you're welcome Laura!). The following pictures show what you do in a sporting goods store with 3-year olds...and dads.
Test out the equipment...and safety gear. Take rides on the escalator (or alligator, if you're Sophie).
And have sword fights with swimming noodles! Evidently the dads even got into the fun by receiving a few good "Dumb & Dumber" whacks to the back of the knees.
