I had some concerns that the employees at the Gap might wrestle Atlee from me in an effort to give her some toddler-style makeover. They didn't. Maybe she wasn't the only shopper to come in wearing a faux-leopard coat and utilitarian mud boots that day. (There aren't any pictures, but trust me that Mama wasn't looking all that great either.)
Post-Gap, we had time to read a book in the car.
We stopped at Kennie's for some groceries. Have you seen our new local grocery store? It's beautiful!
So, we decided to do a drive by and see if the coast was clear at home. The plumber's van was in the driveway. We see our plumber a lot. He's my brother-in-law John's friend, but we see him much more often that John does.
The coast is clear. Below is our box of fasnachts. These are a Pennsylvanian tradition. I didn't know about this tradition since I'm from Upstate New York. However, I can adapt readily. Particularly for donuts. Mmmmm....donuts. See the little red thingamabob behind the donuts? That's the gas meter that started all of this in the first place.
