Pretend City

Last week we got to go to Pretend City with Jill and Lili.  After a wild goose chase around Irvine, we finally found it.  It was such a fun day!
Lili working at the grocery store 

Grant and Kate working the bakery department at the store 

Jill was checking out with her items--Lili added some mayo to her basket. 

 Kate found the little cars and had the best time driving around town.
 Grant found a tow truck--a new addition since the last time we were there.
 Clearly, my kids thought driving around was the most fun.  That's exactly what I would've wanted to do when I was little.

 Grant picked some apples

 Kate checked out the baby chicks

 Grant worked in the kitchen of the Italian restaurant.  We waited a long time for our food only to realize our waiter had left the building and went on to find other things to do.  Needless to say, he didn't earn a tip.

 Grant lifted some weights at the fire station

 Jill worked on Lili's teeth at the dentist's office.  Here she's saying, "Now I open up your jaw."  So if Lili is a little leery of dentists from now on, this may be why.  :-)

It was really hard to get a picture where both Lili and Kate were looking at the camera at the same time.  This was as close as I could get. 

On the way home, Kate said "Fun day!"  I asked her what her favorite thing was and she said, "Auntie Jill...fun with me...cookies."  She adores Auntie Jill and eating...put them together and you have the perfect day.
