Day 4: Spring Cleaning
We decided to take a day off from our touring around the world and do a little spring cleaning…it was rainy and cold outside anyway.
Day 5: Greece, Brazil and Easter Island
The girls and I had breakfast this morning with one of our favorite friends…Shelly. Her son, Ben, came along too. It is always a good time hanging out with them and they always have a funny story to tell. Today was no different and Ben had us laughing out loud. Shelly had a birthday gift for Kelly and the waiters came out with a huge, chocolate-chocolate chip muffin with a candle in it and sang Happy Birthday to her. What a surprise at breakfast! It was a lot of fun.
After breakfast, we were off to Greece! Megan wanted to bring some of her old clothes in to this store called, “Plato’s Closet”. It’s a consignment store, so she was hoping to get a little money for them. While we waited for them to look over the clothes, we did a little shopping of our own and some goofing around too.
She ended up not getting any money at this store, because her clothes were too small, so they referred us to the store across the street called, “Once Upon A Child.” They gave her $14.60 for her clothes, which worked out perfect, since she spent $13 at Plato’s Closet. Even steven!
We did take a quick detour to the Library of Congress, where we dropped off some old books we thought they might enjoy reading and selling. We got $16 for them.
We had a longer wait at Once Upon A Child, so we left the store and headed over to JoAnn Fabrics. I had found a DIY Easter Project online, that I needed a few supplies for. The girls helped me gather the supplies and we were off. When I got home, I assembled my centerpiece and it turned out great. Super easy and inexpensive. Looks great on our island….Easter Island!
Tonight we headed to Brazil. We went to the Macy’s Flower Show in Downtown Minneapolis. The theme this year was Brazil and their beautiful colors. Their mascot is the Toucan. He was pretty cool and smelled great!
We love this annual trip each spring and this year the flowers seemed to be so fragrant. We couldn’t help grabbing the stems and putting them right up to our noses and inhaling big sniffs. We probably looked a little silly, but we didn’t care. That’s what we’re there for….and taking lots of pictures! Enjoy a few of my many photos.
