Spring Cleaning

I finally had a day off from all the chasing around. It felt nice to sleep in a bit. Princess, Prima Donna, and Crafty all had a dance competition in Clearfield, but my sweetie dropped them at the carpool spot. That left my day open except for a birthday party Scout was planning to attend in the middle of the day.

It was a perfect day for a little spring cleaning.

The kids didn't think so. But eventually I prevailed and Sport and Curly brought down the clothes out of all of their drawers so we could sort them. They sure have grown this winter! By the time we were finished we had loaded two large garbage bags and refolded all of their things for them to put back in their drawers.

Mine's gone already?!
On my way to pick up Scout from the birthday party, I dropped the garbage bags at Deseret Industries. They are a charity sponsored by the LDS church that sends clothing and other supplies all over the world. The boys thought it was interesting to think about the various countries their discarded t-shirts and jeans might help clothe.

When we returned, we piled the kids in the van and headed for the library. After cashing in our free book coupons from the Beehive reading contest, we decided to walk over to One Sweet Slice.

On the way, the kids ran through the fountain, but it didn't matter because there was only a little water in it. In Utah we are in that awkward place between winter and spring, not cold enough for the ice skating rink, but definitely not warm enough to turn on the fountain.

I don't know if your kids watch TV, but mine see very little and when they do get the opportunity, one of their favorite shows is Cupcake Wars.

They loved watching the episode with our very own neighborhood cupcakery and were even more excited to see them win!

We had never taken the kids to One Sweet Slice before, but since we had three free coupons...

Want my advice? Try the key lime cupcake, I'm sure that's the reason they won.

Wow, I liked your day and it was awesome to end it with a cupcake. I will have to get the key lime one for my husband. I of course, will need a chocolate one.
Blessings to all!

Apparently they had a contest for free cupcakes for a year. Too bad you didn't take a video...
