Yesterday Jenna needed a new coloring book so I took her to the bookstore (one of my favorite places!). She got to sit in the front seat of the van and select the CD tracks. Apparently it was her first time in the front. It was a very big deal! I don’t think we listed to more than ten seconds of any song as she searched back and forth for a “prettier” one.
When we pulled into the parking lot of Barnes & Noble Jenna told me they don’t have any coloring books. She was right. So we went to Borders. Their coloring book selection isn’t much better. She picked out two Barbie books then followed me around until I eventually found “The End of Faith” by Sam Harris. Apparently books about the human atrocities perpetrated by people of faith in the name of religion aren’t too popular around here.
After we made our purchase we went to Hooters. Kirsten keeps a box of crayons in the glove box so Jenna was able to use twenty-four colors instead of the four crayon colors they have at Hooters. We sat in our booth and talked, colored, and read. It was nice to have one-on-one time together. Jenna ordered chocolate cake. She was excited it was all hers and she didn’t have to share with her sisters. She quickly ate the chocolate chips off the back and the huge glob of frosting on the top.
