Summer Fun/Book and Cook Day 2

After dropping off ElvenDude at chess camp, ElvenPrincess and I went to the dentist's office to make appointments for cleanings. They were booked pretty solid, and so were we, so home we headed with the promise that we'd be called if they could work us in on our available dates.

ElvenPrincess told me yesterday that her sneakers were hurting her feet, so we pulled up the stride rite website and were looking at shoes, when my phone rang. We could both get our cleanings right away if we could come back, so back we went to the dentist.

After cleanings, we were off to Stride Rite for shoes. She immediately fell in love with a pair and didn't even look at any others. They were on sale even!

They are pink and shiny, of course she wanted them!

So we concluded that quickly, and had time to go home and freshen up a bit before our reservation for tea at our local tea room.

I only had a salad, but the Princess got the Mad Hatter's Children's Tea. It comes with fruit juice or hot chocolate, and she chose the hot chocolate.

Tea done, we went to the library (again!), as she'd finished 10 books for the summer reading program and earned a certificate and her name on the bulletin board. After that, Foxtale Books to pick up the copy of The Princess and the Pea we'd ordered, and then to buy ingredients for our book and cook session.

Our book today was Skippyjon Jones and the Big Bones. Since Skippy is a Siamese Cat who imagines he is a chihuahua who hangs out with a gang of Mexican chihuahuas, our cooking theme was Mexican.

We made Flan, from a mix, and put it to set in the fridge.

After swim lessons, we fixed quesadillas, both black bean and chicken, for supper. The quesadillas and flan were a big hit, and I've already had requests (more like demands, lol) that we have flan again soon!

Well done! And those are *definitely* the shoes that I would have chosen at her age.
