Date Night and a few new books

Hubby left at 5 am on Friday morning to go to Kansas for a wrestling tournament. B and I had a little "date" that evening. We went to my favorite Sandwich shop Jimmy Johns for dinner. While we were eating we took some sillly pictures on the camera phone and sent them to daddy. This one is an "I love you" picture he sent to dad. All of us are always doing this sign to each other. Matt was due to get back the following night.

After dinner we made a quick stop at Target and then headed to Barnes and Noble. B loves to play at the train table there and I love to look at books so spending time there is always fun for both of us. We ended up staying there for about an hour or so before heading home. The new books I picked up were:

The Carrot Seed by Ruth Krauss and pictures by Crockett Johnson, illustrator of the Harold books which we love.

Martin's Dream to read to the little ones tomorrow on MLK day.

My Own Very Hungry Caterpillar Coloring Book- I had never seen this one! We love the Very Hungry Caterpillar and this looks like so much fun!

Too Many Toys by David Shannon. We are big David Shannon fans and when I saw this book I had to grab it. I know another little boy with too many toys!

Also on the subject of books: Here are two other suggestions for you for the next few days:
An old favorite: Martin's Big Words. I LOVE to read this book aloud. I used it in my classroom and the kids really enjoyed listening to it. It is by Dorreen Rappaport. Wonderful book.

And a new favorite: Barack by Jonah Winter. Great book for kids about our new President-Elect and we will definately be enjoying these two over the next few days.
