There are lots of those sayings that sometimes can ring so true.
Kid in a candy store.
The other day I found myself using them literally and figuratively.
It all started innocently. 2 girls enjoying some playtime after swim team.
Then it was time for dinner. They didn’t want the fun to end. Who were we to be the kill joys?
So we invited MB’s friend to join us. That set the girls into action.
Next thing I know I am helping zip up fancy dress. Looking for the matching purses. Doing their hair to match. Helping secure the headbands in place.
The girls were ready to go. Out for pizza that is.
Just remember I am smiling. They were both so full of summer loving.
We enjoy a great pizza. The girls enjoying each other and TB and I enjoying the benefits.
A perfect AZ evening we walked around the quarter for a bit while the girls frolicked around the fountains. Laughing. Smiling. Summer loving.
Then we saw the new candy store.
The girls wanted to go in.
We agreed and told them they could pick out a small treat.
It’s a large and pretty cool candy store. We are talking 50lb gummy bears. Mannequins dressed in candy outfits. Lots of retro candy fun too. They were the epitome of kids in a candy store.
We settled in on picking out a few jelly belly flavors. Simple sugar.
Just some kids in a candy store loving a perfect summer evening.
