Ikea trip

I needed to make a trip to Ikea to get some furniture pieces for the house.  The kids had been wanting to go down so I thought we would make an outing of it.

We first started with some lunch at the Café.  We were excited that it was Kids Eat Free weekend – nice little bonus! Smile


Ikea has a Kids Club where you can drop off the kids for 45 minutes while you shop.  Gavin and Mikayla thoroughly enjoyed themselves there – I enjoyed getting to look around the showroom and pick out my items without my little helpers. Smile

This is a pic of the kids sitting on the dresser and dining room chairs that we bought.  The were super patient while we waited in line.

I decided that their excellent behavior deserved $1 frozen yogurt cones.  We also treated ourselves to a tray of their super yummy cinnamon rolls (we ate those over a couple of days once we got home). 

It was a fun day together and a nice way to close out Mikayla’s Spring Break.  I loved having the opportunity to spend some extra time with both of my children.  With Mikayla in school now, I miss some of the time with her that we used to spend together.  It was a good week!
