Matthew's Big Day Out

Matt and I took an extra day off this week to extend the holiday weekend just a little bit longer. We decided to venture out for the day on Tuesday to run some errands on the other side of the Tappan Zee Bridge and we let Ish tag along.

Our first stop was The Christmas Tree Shop to pick up another kiddie pool. Ish insisted that Bob come along for the trip.
He even insisted on pushing Bob in the shopping cart.
There was much concern when Bob almost slipped through the leg holes. Don't worry - Bob's fine now.
Bob was abandoned for a Big Bird and Elmo that we picked up at our second stop (and my second home), Target. We found a great water mat there - in the aisle next to the Back to School section. Seriously, it's July and there was ONE summer aisle at Target.
Since it was oppressively hot, we decided to stop at the Palisades Mall on the way home. It was even hot in the mall. Ish insisted (he does that now - he insists) on taking a spin on one of the little car rides. Notice Big Bird and Elmo wanted to ride too.
After a quick ride, we treated ourselves to some Wendy's for lunch.
After lunch we stopped at The Disney Store (we don't have one near us and since we're rarely at this particular mall, we took advantage of the 60% off sale they were having). Ish picked out two "Mupps" - his new crib mates.
At the end of the day, we came full circle. Bob was back to his #1 spot in Ish's heart. And head.

I'm originally from Rockland, so you hit my old stomping ground the Palisades Mall (although we still call it the "New Mall" as opposed to the "Old Mall" in Nanuet. Its not so new anymore!)

And, aw, Bob was restored to his place of honor in the end. Lol.

By the way, I've left you an award on my blog!

That last picture with him sleeping on Bob is my favorite. Although I totally chuckled about how a regular "errands" day is now an "adventure" day in our house too. Exploring, new things. Stuff I always took for granted as humdrum are big time cool to our little guys! Great post!
