Food and fun!

Here are some photos of the food and fun  we have had these two days!

We had mango pie

The next day while watching LOST We ate Cinnamon roles.

During this time we also went to the new store and walked about  we got a snack of crapes and chocolate milk which I don’t have pictures of because it was taken with the phone.

But mom got roses and here is a picture of them.

Other movies we saw Atlantis 2.

Today we went to Costoco on the way there we stopped so Dad could go do his weddings and we went to the electronic store and used the I. pad. there.

I didn’t get it but I think Meli said she got it !

That was fast.

Then we went yo Mac Donolds and there waited until Dad finished his weddings and had some bonding time with Mom.

Then we went to Costoco and did our shopping I took some photos on the way.

Some are interesting so I will post them.

After the shopping we got pizza and bolcongie for our dinner.
