When you have no money....

...and you really want to get out with the family and have some cheap a town that has almost nothing to do because no place is open past 6 on a week night... (besides the library and that gets old) you head to the local big box store that you are trying to boycot and try stuff on for fun and take pictures.


Isn't this what you do for cheap fun?

Bring a little cheer.

Dude. What's hangin'? (I don't even know what that really means so if I am saying something bad I am sorry, it just seemed so right)

Ok, ok, so he really needed an umbrella and we promised to reward him for staying in his bed all night long.

He got the umbrella, but in blue...and it was only a few bucks!
That just seems wrong, but it was so right for us!
It blows when the funds are low but it doesn't have to stop anyone from having a little family cheer on a dreary night.
Worked for us.

What? The library is open past 6pm? My town is smaller than yours lol!

I love Walmart. I don't really boy-cot anything but Gluten.

We do that sometimes, go out just to get out of the funk and only spend a dollar or two. Now that the nicer weather is here we can spend it outside :)

Our town does not shut down at 6:00 p.m. as you well know but Grandpa usually does at 7:00 p.m. due to his schedule so nothing gives me more fun than to log on and find new pics of the grandkids. They get cuter by the minute. I looked at the new ones of Hudsy -who gets more handsome by the minute - and I decided it must be the McLean genes as all four of our guys good looking.
Take care - love and kisses to you all - miss you bunches.

If I am bored and want to get out of the house, I love spending time at the dollar store. I can always find something to buy and it doesn't cost a fortune. Shopping therapy done cheap. I have to say that the kids are so cute! The sunglass pictures are wonderful. The green frog coat was cute! Austin has one. Have you made any of the crafts yet? Let me know how they turned out. love and miss you lots. Aunty Kathy
