After a couple errands this morning, we decided to have lunch in Keenan's fort:
This afternoon I decided to check out our local library. Why have I never been there before? Because it just looked like a tiny little hole in the wall, stuck over near the police station with some other small community services. How good could it really be?
I had Heard that it was pretty cool, but I guess I still didn't believe it. But, when the library we usually go to was closed today, I decided we'd check it out. The cool thing is, it's within walking distance of our house!
I figured it would be a good walk for Keenan and wouldn't be too far, so I didn't take the double stroller. However, about a block from the house, he wanted me to carry him, so I figured out a way that he could ride too!
So... wow, we got there and I was Totally impressed!! It's much bigger inside than I had expected, and it's got a little of everything! Access to the internet, a great genealogy section, tons of movies, books on cd (which is one of the main things I was after), kids videos, and the BEST kids play section Ever!! I think I was as excited about it as Keenan! They have a stage area where they have story time twice a week, with huge stuffed animals and fun puppets, a playhouse, a train table, mini benches, puzzles, trucks, a magnet table, etc...
This is a Huge "sanity saving" resource, right in my own neighborhood that I've never taken advantage of before! (cue the Hallelujah Chorus).

I picked up Mamma Mia! at Blockbuster (figured that would be a good pic for while Philip was gone, since he'd probably not be into that). A friend took me to the live musical (Yay, Kristin!) several years ago in Toronto and it was Fantastic! Hopefully the movie will be just as fun.
I've also been moving furniture around. (Don't tell Philip!) I'm trying to decide if there's another way that will work for our family room furniture. I like variety. I might post pictures later and ask for opinions...
