Welcome to our Adventure...

We packed up the kids, dog and the trailer and headed out for adventure, learning and helping others. During our adventure we will try to update this site as often as possible to keep everyone interested involved in our travels and to keep a journal for ourselves. The plan is to be working, schooling, helping and sharing on the road for a year.

Shopping Day

We stayed home in our pajamas in the morning and drank coffee and ate pumpkin muffins. Then we all took our showers and got ready to go shopping. Spencer had some birthday money burning a hole in his pocket and Grandma was dying to get a Lego minifigure collection started for herself.

We started out at the Christian Supply Store to try to find Advent calendars. We didn't find the kind I wanted there, but we did find a new story Bible for Skylar to practice his reading skills. From there, we went next door to a Marshalls and we spent a long time there, but we didn't find anything. Then we got in the car and drove across the street to Barnes and Noble and we found some nice Advent calendars with little chocolates in them. We picked up one for each kid. We next went to Target because Spencer was really out of shopping patience and Target was where he wanted to go to spend his money. ;O)

At Target, we shopped around a little bit and then we made for the Lego aisle where everyone, except me, chose between 3 and 6 packets of series 7 or 8 minifigures. All the McFarlane kids are well-versed in the minifigure world and knew what to expect. For those of you that don't know, the minifigure packs contain a completely decked out, in costume, Lego person, but it's like a grab bag. You don't get to pick what you get. There are about 12 different characters per series. When we left Target we all agreed to wait until we got home to see what figures everyone got.

We were all famished from the shopping and so drove just down the road to the Steak n' Shake where we all enjoyed our lunch/dinner combo meals along with shakes or fountain sodas. Turned out we arrived there at happy hour and so all our drinks were half price.

Heading back towards the trailer we hit a Big Kmart where my mom found a cool little speaker exactly like what she'd been wanting for use with her iPad, phone and computer at home. I found some TP that was exactly like what I needed to use it for too. Different worlds right now. LOL

When we got back to the trailer, everyone was very eager to open their packages and see what their new figures were. I think between everyone, we purchased 20 minifigures!!! Would you believe there were only two sets of duplicates in all those random packs so I guess everyone chose well. Each person was very happy with the characters they received.

All the kids changed into their suits and we headed over to the pool so they could burn off some extra energy and Mom and I accessed the campground wifi from there. It worked great. Yay!

Then we all came back to the trailer for some snacks and bedtime.
