After the last of the white cheese dip was devoured by my son, aka Taco Boy Jared, we took off to Willy Wonka's candy store......the local Fred's candy aisle. Now, we did not tell the kids where we were going during our adventure, they learned as we went along. They made out like bandits each picking out their own mini candy bar package, making a trip down the toy aisle and to the register to pay for their sweet pieces of childish grandeur.
We then made a stop off at Wonderland, the local park, and the kids took off into wild adventures of swinging from the tallest playground you can imagine, well from the eyes of children anyways, ran all their wiggles out and landed in the back seat of the car for the last leg of their unknown journey to....Los Angeles, Ramen Theatre...or the local Clarksville 4 screen cinema!
The kids were joined by their Grandma Pentzer who enjoyed the whole afternoon with us hopefully as much as we enjoyed her. She graciously attended 'Race to Witch Mountain' with the little people and allowed the big kids to sneak off for a movie of their own. With 5 kids, there isn't much time for the parents, but we are ever so grateful, with even the smallest of budgets, that we can find great adventures right here in our own hometown!
