I figured I should go out to the store to get the dish washing tools I needed.
I was standing in the store, trying to pick out the best possible sponge. I saw the Magic Eraser! I had been told about this in the past. I didn't think much of it then. I guess I just filed it somewhere in the back of my brain. Today, I had the urge to get it & try it.
And, I tried it. I couldn't stop trying it. It was so fun. I cleaned all my cabinet & drawer fronts in the kitchen. The stovetop. The microwave. The oven. The walls. The fridge. The kickboards. I was going to sew this afternoon. But, the magic eraser had other plans. I cleaned until the eraser was out of magic. I had to kept repeating to myself, "do not get out the other one... leave it in the drawer... do not clean anymore..."
I recommend this little sponge. It makes cleaning so darn fun. And, it even worked on the kitchen grease above the stove/oven range. And, when I say grease, I mean, a lot. I don't do such chores with any regularity...
Back to what is on my nightstand...

The kids were both very good all weekend. Gillian hardly got a nap both days. But, lasted very well.
Saturday was Scott's mom's birthday. The party was a surprise & so was our visit! I think she was glad to see the grandkiddies!
Sunday we went to the Zoo, before we flew back home. What a great place! Everyone loved it.

Right now, I am trying to win this beauty - the Toro, made by Micralite.
If I win this, I'll donate it for the auction. It looks like a pretty awesome stroller. The giveaway is going on at MomDot. You could always enter & then donate it to the auction, if you win!

After she woke up & had here morning bottle, I told her we needed to get out of bed to get ready - we were going to go see fishys. She was giddy, starting right then.
First we went to breakfast at First Awakenings. A tasty start - with both Scott & I eating the Bacado Omelette.
Then we went to the Aquarium. She loved it!
Peyton loved it, too. He was shaking with excitement when he saw the fish tanks.
We loved the kiddie play Splash Zone. Face plants are kinda fun when you are on a water bed.
We walked the trail along the ocean to this little park, where we had a picnic lunch. Gillian kept racing to this tree & posing. She seemed to really want a picture. But, she was a little far away to get a really good one.
