Since we were in the vicinity, the kids and I decided to get a few errands done in the Denver area. On the first Friday, the kids and I braved the American Girl Store at Park Meadows. As I pushed the double stroller through the aisles of dolls and girly clothes and the vast landscape of accessories, I kept getting remarks like, "Wow! Three boys!" and "Three boys and one girl!" Someone even asked Dabney how many brothers she had. I guess boys are scarce around those parts.
In the end, we emerged victorious. The only thing we were after was a hair brush for Dabney's new doll and constant companion~ Kit.
On the last Friday, the children completed their lapbooks and then all of the families caravaned down the street to a little creek where the kids had a fabulous time splashing in the water.
