The week after school let out, the girls and I drove over to Bellevue for a day out while Ivan was acting as a counselor for Ike’s summer drama camp.
Bellevue is a very wealthy suburb of Seattle, so we went with the intention of stopping at the Goodwill there which has a reputation for quality finds (often with tags still on) for next to nothing.
We found – basically – nothing, so we went to the downtown shopping area which is really too expensive, but much prettier to look at.
While we were waiting for our lunch at The Cheesecake Factory, I called Ivan to make sure he’d made it home okay after drama camp. He had, and at the same time informed me that he’d gotten the lead role in a play for the summer called Peter & the Star Catcher.
That made our day!
One of the main reasons I like going to Bellevue is that it has a World Market…one of my favorite stores. So many neat things and a great world beer section that lets me bring home treats for Donald.
(She’s such a rebel!)
Jenelle and I killed some time while Hannah shopped and then we head home. It was a quick fun way to kick start the summer.
