I am not sure I could have handled “Hop” today.

We ended the day with a quick trip to Trader Joe’s where we picked up a few essentials for the week such as brownie mix, lemonade, popcorn and other bribes, um, I mean treats. In case of another rainy day emergency I am will not be caught without baking options and sustenance 😉
