|just a little rest|
After lunch I got dropped off for a 90 minute massage and Greg took the girls to wander Costco and do a few errands. Back to pick me up, and we took a quick detour on the way home to get the truck washed. Lynnie hates the car wash, but has developed a new strategy. If she closes her eyes and I help cover her ears, she does better. Afterwards she told me she was brave. And she was!
We had a couple of minutes at home before Nick came over to babysit. We had him take some pictures of all of us by my birthday flowers and balloon.
Eliana was not excited about that.

"Dad, lean your head towards Mom. Mom, give Daddy a hug. OK, that's better. Now say cheese!"
After leaving the girls in Nick's very competent hands, we headed to Deseret Book for some serious browsing. What a luxury for me to wander around a bookstore with no time constraints!
After a delicious dinner at The Harvest, we went to check out the new outlet malls by our house. We hadn't been over there yet, and it is probably bad that I now know about this particular stretch of stores. Carter's, Osh Kosh, Gymboree, and The Children's Place are all right next to each other.
It was a wonderful day full of my favorite things: my family, not cooking, shopping, and being pampered. Definitely a day to remember!
