My kids would say we don't go enough, but we make trips to the dollar stores quite a bit!
Griffin had a buck to spend that he earned at the DeWitt White Elephant party. No, it wasn't a gift he opened but we can't remember exactly how he got the dollar. Something about Uncle Alan (my dad's brother), offering a reward to whoever could withstand a tickle session without talking or moving or something. ..... Any family out there remember what it was?
It always takes Griffin F-O-R-E-V-E-R to choose his toy. At this particular dollar store, we saw something there we hadn't seen at others.
A fossil egg.
The egg was made of sand and came with tools to dig out the dino bones burried inside.
He discovered 7 bones:
(Don't you love how our kitchen counter looks like crackling ground?...Gives it the "Wait a minute! Are those REAL fossils?" look.)
Here it is all put together:
Thanks dollar store!
