We’ve moved around quite a bit over the years, and a favorite thing to do is to act like a tourist for a day! We find that many locals never do the things that tourists do, and we say “Why Not?!” I highly encourage checking out a tour guide book of the area you live in . . . you’re likely to find some surprises, like we did!
This weekend we celebrated candy because . . . well, do we need a reason?
We visited a soda fountain shop with old fashioned jars of candy behind the counter. If kids point at which jars they most like and tell the employee they want to only spend a dollar, the employee figures out the rest for you. Our children LOVED spending a buck of their own money this way! Anabelle enjoyed ‘clown fish.’
The kids each chose a truffle to eat at the ‘bar.’ Katarina pointed to her choice . . . “Could I have one of …THOSE?”
“The Nipples of Venus?” the cashier asked. (Commence snickering from the two youngest…. then of course, they ALL had to choose that one just to say they did!)
Of course, I couldn’t blame him. I purchased some dark chocolate chili-infused pistachio bark to save for a romantic date.
