Antiquing With Bobo.

On Tuesday, Isaac, Meg and I spent the day shopping with Grandma Bobo (my Mom). It was a real treat. We went to Pizza Hut (Daddy came too), Downtown Bangor (where Meg bought a Webkin), the Antique Store (see above & below), and the Farmer’s Market (more about that later).

How many people can take their 2-year old to an antique store? I can! Isaac and Meg just love antiquing … because, of course, there are so many unique treasures to be found. Isaac loves to walk around looking at various items while exclaiming, “Mama. that niiiice!” And Meg truly appreciates the beauty and history of older objects. She has her heart set on an old wicker baby buggy that is just $2,200.00!

And I just love when I take the kids into a higher-end antique store like this one. The clerks all give me the hairy eyeball as though I have some kind of nerve to bring kids into the store. But I have full confidence that the kids will be respectful … and they always are. So, I ignore the stares and carry on with pride.

No one bought anything on this trip to the antique store … but we wanted to 🙂 Meaghan loved anything to do with babies, Isaac loved the above mirror (notice that he is checking out his tongue?), Mom had her heart set on an old hoosier, and I ooohed and ahhhed over all sorts of things that my Mom thought of as downright ugly (but I am certain many of you would appreciate).

Have a Great Weekend!
