I try to plan something every day that will get Aspen and myself out of the house. If we don't go somewhere, it turns into a really long day of being together without anything or anyone else to break it up.I decided on Saturday to venture to IKEA (on a Saturday, I know, I know) because Aspen loves those bead roller coaster toys and IKEA sells them for $8.
I invited my friend Ashley to join us for lunch and she met us at the IKEA restaurant so we could catch up. She and I have been friends since we were 13 or 14 so it's always a good time when we get together.
And yes, we obviously walked away with a train set as well. She had a lot of fun playing with the display at the store, and I couldn't resist. Plus, when winter comes and we're trapped inside due to the cold, we're going to need all the help we can get to stay entertained and warm.
