You know where a great place to go with small children at 7:30 in the morning? Home Depot. I'm serious. They open at 7, they don't care if you're loud, you've basically got the place to yourself, and there are a million things to look at.

We went to their craft program yesterday (made an Easter bunny basket, ARR is getting to be a pro with balsa and a hammer). I didn't actually have the time or transportation options to get the stuff I wanted while we were there, though - we weren't going straight home, so I had limited carrying capacity. Today was my turn on the early shift. We went back and hit the garden center. ARR helped me pick out flowers. We got a giant bag of potting soil, pansies, ranunculus, tubers for bleeding hearts and ferns, and some L-braces for the shelving that needs reinforcements. ARR got to ride the escalators and elevators, and hide behind the towering piles of potting soil bags. Good time was had by all.
