A Good Day

Yesterday the Little Miss and I had a good afternoon.  We made a trek to our local library, which we had not been to yet.  We are lucky.  The library near us is new, huge and beautiful.  Many of the local communities are closing their libraries or making serious cuts to what they offer.  Thankfully, ours seems to be doing well.  I wish I would have taken some pictures, because the place is just that beautiful.

The massive children’s section is on the 2nd floor.  They have such a great set up for the kids.  There are big wooden toys with letters that spin, a train set to play with, kid size play trains and busses they can get it an pretend to drive.  There is a computer center where kids can just sit an play age appropriate learning games.  We both fell in love.

I was busy trying to get some new books for us to read, while the Little MIss was busy running around and trying to show me all of the super cool things she found.  The joy was palpable.  She did not want to leave at all.  When we did finally leave, we eneded up with 8 books and 5 dvds for her to watch.  I think trips to the library will definitely happen more often around here.

I didn’t get a chance to pick out any books for myself, Im going to check out the online catalog and we can make a trip back there later this week for me.

The greatest thing is that they have an activity room where they hold free events for people in the community.  Not just story time either.  They screen movies.  Teddy bear picnics.  Princess / fairy tea time (where the little girls come all dressed up in their fave prices dress).  Crafts for kids.  Pajama story time.  You get the idea.  We will definitely be taking advantage of the free stuff they have going on.

After we got home last night we snuggled up on the couch and read a bunch of books together.  Definitely a great bonding time that doesn’t include the TV 🙂
