Kaleb and the most expensive M&Ms ever!

Andie and the aftermath of the M&Ms

Well, it finally happened. Kaleb is now potty trained. I thought this day would never come. I got a lot of advice from moms that have been through this and everyone said the same thing. "When he's ready, he will do it." We decided to give it a try this week since things have settled down a bit and we've been spending more time at home. The first day was a little rough but it has been almost a week and he is doing great with it!

We told him that he was going to get a special day out for being a big boy. We decided to take him to the M&M store on the strip and he was so excited. First we went to the Flamingo to see their bird sanctuary. It was really neat to see Flamingos, turtles and giant Koi fish. Next we went to the M&M and Coca Cola stores. For anyone who hasn't been there the M&M store is 4 stories of everything you can think of to do with M&Ms. There is a wall of M&M machines where you get to choose your own colors so we let Kaleb fill his own bag. It never even occurred to me that I should check the price first. Jeff took Kaleb to pay for them and the grand total came to....$15.00! I couldn't believe it. They were $12.99 a pound! Needless to say that is the last time we will buy M&Ms there. Kaleb enjoyed it though and Andie did too as you can see in the pictures. We tried to get his picture with the Red and Yellow M&Ms but he was too scared to stand next to them. Next Jeff and I enjoyed and ice cold Mexico Coca Cola (The greatest Coke ever!) and then we headed home. Overall it was a great day. Congratulations Kaleb on being a big boy! I'm so proud to be your mommy!!!
