After scouting out the booths, we took a break at TacomaMama's wonderful bubble and chalk area. It kept him occupied for somewhere between 45 minutes and an hour, with a lunch break in the middle. He didn't always get quite how to work the bubble wands. Inhaling, for instance, can leave a bad taste in your mouth.
A latin band was playing, and Stinky spotted the kndergarteners on a field trip dancing (two of his favorite things together: big kids and music) and had to join in. We found a great deal on apples, and I picked up some gorgeous creamy-yellowy wool yarn for the dishcloth swap package I'll be sending- it's from a company called SmartMonkey that repurposes yarn. It was hard to choose only one skein- I wanted them all for myself!
After lunch and shopping, we had to clean the soap out of Stinky's mouth- so we popped in to Hello Cupcake at the end of the trip (side note: if you live in the area, this store is worth the trip! Everything here is good!) He proceeded to eat the frosting and refuse the cake. Grandma and I had to step in and help him out. Really, it would have been wasteful not to.
Pictures tomorrow of our finished "Strange Creatures" wall. I can't wait to show you- it looks so cool!
