Our first stop today was swimming lessons. David dropped me off and then took off to the tractor show in Vista. Janice's goal today was to get Kyleigh a dress for her annual portrait, some silver shoes to go with her Halloween costume, diapers and a hanging storage container for her stuffed animals.

She had a coupon for Carters and their dresses were on sale at 40% off so that was our first stop. She bought a dress (wouldn't have been my first choice), a sweater to go with it since it was sleeveless, a pair of pajamas with feet and a play outfit.

We then went to Babies R Us, where she got diapers, wipes, snacks and some canvas shoes (Kyleigh now knows "pink".) While there, Kyleigh got bored and turned around in the basket on her knees so she could see where we were going instead of where we'd been. She also spotted a Dora container for snacks.

The next stop was Ikea where Janice wanted to get the stuffed animal holder for her room. She also found an inexpensive tent and a couple of small stuffed animals. Because, Ikea is a very large store, we borrowed a wheelchair from the customer service desk and Kyleigh rode on my lap. We've done this a couple of times and she sits really still. We tried to get her off a couple of times to check out some chairs and tables, but she refused to get off my lap.

While we were there, we checked the Dream Homes (manufactured homes) in the parking lot. Janice liked what she saw and they are affordable so she's looking into purchasing a pre-owned one.

By this time it was time for lunch so we stopped at a Carls Jr. Kyleigh gets a hamburger happy meal and Janice usually breaks it up for her, but this time, she decided she needed to eat it like a big girl. In the first picture she's examining a pickle which eventually went into her mouth.

The toy was a soft ball with a monster face on it. I don't think this is how it was meant to be played with though.

Our final stop was a Payless Shoe Store to look for those silver shoes. Kyleigh was asleep when we got there so I carried her in, but she woke up as soon as she saw all the shoes. Janice did find the shoes she was looking for and Kyleigh found a backpack. She's really into Dora the Explorer and as soon as she spotted this, I knew I was going to get it for her. Even though she was wearing one, she kept going back to the shelf and wanting another one. At one point, she was wearing two! She's also wearing the shoes she got at Babies R Us earlier.

I managed to get it off her to get in the car, but Janice told me later that she wore it all around the house when she got home.
David got back from Vista about 5:30 and decided he wanted to go to a Chinese Buffet that he had an ad for. Unfortunately, he couldn't find the ad, but remembered approximately where it was, so we went looking for it. The one place we found was really crowded and was more of an Asian Buffet so we kept looking. 45 minutes later, we ended up at a Hong Kong Express and brought home takeout.
We then watched what was left of the Angels game. Turned out it took another two hours. They did play better than last night, but still lost. I knew one run wasn't enough of a lead for Fuentes. They better get their act together before they get home on Monday. I did get quite a bit of stitching done, so it wasn't a total loss.
Angels - 0; Yankees - 2

Your 'pumpkin patch' adventure took me on a delightful trip down 'Memory Lane', Cathy. Kyleighy is absolutely adorable, and I love your blog. I'm looking forward to getting to know you better in the near future. I'll check back at a later date to take an indepth visit at here.
