No School and Lunch with Dad

We haven't gotten the amount of snow that's been forecasted but Kade's school was closed today because the owner was worried about the possible lake effect snow we could get.  Wednesdays Kade stays at school until 2 and I usually have a busy day running errands and doing other things he doesn't like to do with me.  Today he got to tag along on my busy day.  First we went to the post office to mail a package.  Then we went to the library, which is what we do after I pick him up.  Then I had to get a few things from Walmart.  We dropped off our things and grabbed some lunch items and had lunch with Mickey at work.  Kade was happy about this "errand" and kept talking about playing that "ball" game, meaning fuss ball or foosball.

Eating Lunch

We enjoyed our lunch, finishing with some Valentine cookies.  Yumm.  Then Mickey and Kade played a little fuss ball.  Kade was a little loud during the game but I think most of the people enjoyed him.  We stopped at Mickey's office so he could shoot some hoops and play with cars and airplanes.  (You would not believe how many toys Mickey has in his office.)  We said our goodbyes and headed home.  But that wasn't the end.  We dropped off the lunch stuff and went to JoAnn.  I'm looking for some fabric for an order and didn't find what I wanted so we went to the near by Hobby Lobby too.  We left empty handed there also.  We got home to rest for a few minutes before having to get Meg.  During all our running around Kade made the comment of having a busy day.  I told him that if he would have had school he would have missed it all.  I don't think he would have wanted to give up his lunch with Mickey though.  Who doesn't like being the center of both parents' attention?

We never did get the lake effect snow.  In fact most of the morning the sky looked like this.

And for the record I paid Mat the ten dollars she "won" from me on Sunday.

That was a lot of fun! Kade really does enjoy my workplace and I must say we are pretty lucky to have the things we do. It's funny I've never seen it typed out as "fuss ball". That makes me think of a crying ball. I've always referred to it as foosball, but of course you're not wrong. I just didn't realize it could be spelled that way.

Love the picture of the sky.

I'm exhausted just reading about your day. Sorry we missed you at the library; we went after lunch.

I forgot to mention that Kade missed his Valentine party. He wasn't too happy about that but got over it quickly. And I think he really liked all the Dorito commercials during the Super Bowl.
