Adventures in a Big Kid’s Toy Store
How do you reward yourself for spending a day checking things off the to-do and errands lists?
Old Navy shorts flip-flops new dress
shoes to match new dress
work shirts look for sunglasses
You save the best errand for last.
Oh, we have a bat grip and a kickball on the list?
Guess we have to go to Dick’s… what a shame…
After playing with — and ultimately walking away from — every single beach toy in the store (there’s still time before July to come back), I was pretty pumped to find myself a new kickball.
Then we perused the kayaks and canoes, day dreaming about being able to afford two and subsequently being able to take them out on the water every day.
How far away is retirement?
In the camping and hunting section I found a chair I could really use on the beach this year.
This chair is awesome for two reasons: you can’t see that I’m in it and it provides personal shade from the sun. I would never get another sunburn.
And last but not least, I’m putting this floating cooler on my to-buy list for another weekend. It looks like a fishing bobber and it holds 12 cans with ice.
That’s a nice little personal supply of Diet Coke while I’m spending whole days floating in a raft near our dock.
