Spring Break Day Four

Today we didn't do much, it was kind of nice.  We hung out this morning and had a kind of late breakfast.  We went to Crocodile Pie for story time.  This story time was way better than the Barnes and Noble story time from Monday morning.  I had never been in Crocodile Pie before but it was a cute store and I will definitely go back again.  As far as book stores go, it didn't seem like they really had that many books, but they did have a nice collection of books.

Jordan loved saying "Crocodile Pie" a million times.  They had two big crocodiles (stuffed) that he liked talking to.  Here he is coloring at this cute coffee table they had.  These little beanbag seats were perfect for him.  
For the actual story time, they had a guest reader: Terry Weppler, candidate for mayor of Libertyville.  Jordan had a little bit of trouble sitting still for the story time...
...but he was much more attentive once this dude came out with his guitar.  He had fun listening to the songs.  This afternoon he was singing Wheels On the Bus to me and doing the motions.  
We bought Skippyjon Jones in the Dog House.  I love Skippyjon.  We came home, had lunch, Jordan took a nap, Chad came home, we ate dinner, we went to Dairy Queen for chocolate dipped cones, we played at the park, we came home, we went to bed.  It was a nice relaxing day, but it was really nice.  One more day of spring break!!

It looks like you and Jordie had a wonderful day together. It is great that small book stores are providing this kind of entertaiment, smart. I used to take you to the library. Do you remember that? it was fun.

Loved checking out your blog! I'll visit often! A couple new books my boys love: The Great Fuzz Frenzy (Janet Stevens), Little Piggy and Elephant Today I Will Fly, and Naked Mole Rat (Mo Willems is hilarious!). My Spring Break's just begun...
