The Best Things in Life are Free (And Some Pretty Darn Good Things Can Be Had for 50 Cents)
On weekends, you'll normally find us whizzing all over the place, whether to frequent old haunts or try out new ones. But, partly because of a lack of plans and partly because of the chaos that was last week, we laid low this past weekend:
* Saturday morning, we walked down the street to the Penn campus to feed the birds and squirrels.
* Saturday afternoon, the kids played in the sandbox in the backyard.
* Sunday morning, we went to church.
* And Sunday afternoon, we went down the street to the playground.
So the car sat idle, and we didn't spend a cent. Take that back: Aaron and Amy headed home from the playground early, and on the way home, I stopped by CVS with Jada and I bought a 50-cent juice that we shared. The best things in life may be free, but to quench your thirst and have a little father-daughter bonding, you have to splurge a little and part with two quarters.
