Great Day with Olivia

We started of today with one of our favorite activities of the year - Stap.les Appre.ciation Da.y! We went to three different stores - chit chatted with all of the teacher friends we ran into, and got a lot of LOOT!!!
All of this, plus 6 of the reusa.ble cloth bags for FREE!! All because we are teachers - SCORE!!!

We headed over to my parents' house for the afternoon because as Olivia said, "I don't think I've helped Gayle and Dwight collect the eggs for a VERY long time. We should call them and see if they have some eggs to collect." So, we did just that!

Here she is with the egg basket ready to go collect them:

Collecting eggs with my dad - they had to "find" all of the hiding spots behind the hay bales.

Stopping to say hi to Bub...

Stopping again to give Haley a pat...

After we collected eggs, we went for a walk in the woods so the dogs could go swimming in a little hole that my dad dug. That turned out to be an adventure in and of itself, so we'll save that for a separate blog post.

After our walk, Olivia decided that it would also be a good idea to pick some vegetables:

Picking tomatoes:

On the hunt for green beans:

Having my dad help her with the cucumbers because "they're too prickly!"

We had a great day, and we are all worn out and ready for a good night's sleep!
We have to return her to her moms tomorrow. :(

Wow, didja get those at discount, or for free? Our St.aples doesn't offer Teac.her App. Day so I had to get all my goodies like the regular folks. Good job on the stuff you got!

And nice pics!

I wanna come visit you guys one day. You always have fun. What a great day just picking up eggs and veggies. I wish a lot of kiddos had a chance to do something so simple and fun. I think they'd learn a lot.
