One day after school, I took the munchkins out for a treat. It was a sunny day and, as you may know, sunlight can do wonders for a person's mood! We stopped for a snack of cheese fries and ice cream- not the healthiest snack, but it's nice to splurge occasionally ;) After we'd filled our bellies and satisfied our cravings, we walked over to a Goodwill store nearby.
