Today is the day Luca’s special present for his surgery got here, the thing that made it all better. We got a stuffed Toothless to hug every time there’s bad feelings over the missing teeth. Already Toothless has been a big hit. Luca insisted on bringing him everywhere. Given how much we were out today, it’s been a long day for Toothless.
We were in pretty desperate need for food stuffs, so we went to the local grocery store for bread. Deciding that was more expensive than the bigger chain store, we decided to skip on over to the big store after lunch. Everyone got a Hostess cupcake from the gas station, then it was off to home for lunch.
Here’s where things got interesting. We decided it was a nice day, so we should just walk to the big grocery store, and go to the closer of the two. There had been talk of checking out our first geocashe on the way, but we decided not to. It would be better to do a straight shot and come straight home.
The kids loved the walk, and they were all good and tired when they got there. Luca saw this horse and insisted on getting up for a ride. I remember riding those when I was little. All of the kids wanted a ride but Corde, but we didn’t have quarters, so we settled with sitting up on it instead. Maybe next time we’ll splurge and let them all ride, though I don’t know when that will be.
The whole adventure, Toothless rode along. He went shopping in two stores and even on the bus. It was quite the adventure for the first day with our family. Now he’s tucked away in the bed with Luca, sleeping peacefully after our really long day. The night was capped with Luca falling asleep to the closing chapters of Peter Pan. It’s really been quite the eventful day.
