Because of yesterday’s jaunt to Inwood, I opted to wait until this morning to go grocery shopping. Hy-Vee was also having a 10 for $10 sale on a few things, none of which I bought.
I also splurged on butter:
Okay, I admit that my rationale for buying the organic butter was completely stupid. I could’ve bought 2 lbs. of conventional butter for what I paid for that…But still, I was annoyed about paying $3.59 for Hy-Vee butter, so I decided that if I was going to pay an arm & a leg for butter, I might as well get organic. I also got some snacks:
I keep seeing these all over the blogosphere, and figured I’d finally give them a try. My sister Kendra’s fond of them, and I have to admit that I tried the Peanut Butter Cookie one, and I did not hate it. In fact, I liked it. So if they go on sale, I’ll most likely stock up. I also bought some bread (instead of baking my own):
This afternoon we took the bambino to the Children’s Museum for the first time. It’s such a neat place and the bambino’s at the perfect age for it.
We’re trying to decide if we want to get a family membership, or just pay as we go. There were a couple rooms that the bambino LOVED–The water play room, the music room (he was dancing around to some marching band music at one point), and the outdoor area.
I personally thought the giant Lite-Brite (remember those?) was cool, as was the Picasso quote. I think the bambino’s absolute favorite part was finally getting to see the dinosaurs up close & personal:
There’s a play farm & grocery store area, and after the bambino ran through there, Jay & I decided that we were hungry. We hadn’t planned on eating at the museum cafe, but since it was there, we grabbed a bite to eat.Plus, the decorations are pretty neat:
I could eat an entire pan of this stuff, I tell ya. While I was stuffed from the lasagna and the tiramisu, I did wish my piece had been a little larger! All in all it was a nice day and the bambino had a lot of fun.
