Yesterday the girls and I went looking for something called "water shoes." Hadley needs them for preschool and so far I have purchased two kinds of shoes that don't work. The first was a pair of sandal type things, but they didn't work out because her toes need to be covered. This grosses me out to know end for some reason. I guess I associate wearing something like this when one would go camping, and you have to wear these in the showers because the bathrooms are filthy. Anyway, the second pair I bought were a pair of croc like shoes. Something I did not want to get because everyone and their sister owns a pair, but they seemed to meet the requirements so I got them. Well, those didn't work out either. I think they were too small. So yesterday we went to more stores to look for the darn water shoes. We didn't have any luck, but we did get to crash a storytime at Barnes and Noble, feed the ducks, and the best part, we found a train that rides along the water at the Washingtonian Center.Here's Hadley "sort of" paying attention at storytime. She's facing the wrong way, but that's OK.
Here are some pictures of Hadley feeding the ducks:
I find it ironic that the prettiest picture I have ever taken is of a duck.
As we strolled around the Washingtonian Center, Hadley spotted this:
Hadley and I wanted to go on the train very badly, but Harper looked like this while we were "oohing and ahhing" over it:
This look means, "Mama better move fast because I'm hungry and tired and I'm about to let the greater DC area know." Harper has a temper.
