I also bribed the kids with cupcakes from Cupcake Royale, we sacrificed naps and a lemonade fell to the floor at a fancy restaurant and I was grumpy after driving in traffic at 4 pm. But, it's good to be pushed out of your comfort level to discover new things, see how much your kids can tolerate (a glass store with 2 kids and no leashes!) and have fun in the process. Besides, we love having friends sleep over! Have a great weekend.
