We began the morning by sleeping in, well Eric and I did the kids were up and watching a movie when we finally got out of bed we were immediately asked if they could have ice-cream for breakfast.
We stayed at the park just a little while so we could make our show at the movies. We saw the new Planes Fire and Rescue movie, it was really cute.
We of course had to get popcorn and slurpies. Halfway through the movie Alex asked for more popcorn, I gave her the part of mine that I didn't want to finish.
After the movies the kids asked if we could go to the Lego store...
They just looked around but couldn't decide on what to spend their money on (they each had $11 to spend).
Instead we went over to ToysRUs where they each picked out a few small things.
After shopping they asked to go out to lunch..
Yes! We went to Chick-Fil-A for lunch.
As you can see everyone was pretty worn out by this point, so after eating, they just wanted to head home. Lucas and Eric played Minecraft together, Alex and Ryder played and then Alex almost broke a Yes Day rule.
She felt sick, in fact she spent a little time in the bathroom, sure she was going to throw up.
Thankfully nothing ever came of it, but she and I just stayed home and took it easy while the boys went to the neighborhood party.
At the end of the night she said "so this is why you don't let me eat treats all day."
Yes, Alex, yes indeed.
Another great Yes Day, (other than Alex getting sick) that actually was pretty similar to the year before. It goes to show that kids definitely learn to like certain things and that really often little simple things can mean a lot to them. Oh and that you will feel sick if you eat too many treats in a day.
Have you ever had a Yes Day?
