Crafting and Shopping Day

I decided to take the girls to Joann's "Make it, Take it" event today.
Often their crafts are for children ages 5 and up but this one was for all ages!
The girls were actually the very first ones to start their projects. They were also the youngest by far! :)
The craft was coloring little bobble head pets (there were about 7 or 8 different styles) and making a tag to go with it.
Vivian was a little entranced with watching the other children more than coloring her puppy though.

On the other hand Shiloh was totally focused. After half an hour she still wasn't totally done. I told her she could finish it at home with her own markers. :) She is that perfectionist first child!
Then we went to Target and ate our lunch. PBJ's and chips, graham crackers and apple juice. It was so hot, I was nervous to pack much that was perishable. But thankfully we had some shade and a nice breeze in the parking lot.
Then we did a little shopping and a whole lot of browsing and just walking and looking.
Vivi fell asleep on the ride home and slept for a good three hours! Wore her out!

The semi-finished crafts below. Shi hadn't finished coloring her cat yet and the little pink bows had fallen off (I'm gluing them back on now, while she's sleeping).
They also made little tags with a pocket to hold a note, and as a bonus she gave them little butterfly garden markers for us to paint at home. :)
