World's Greatest Day: Preschool Edition!

Waaaay back in February when we first found out Abby would have to have surgery, my dear friend Jenn suggested a World's Greatest Day:  Preschool Edition so that we would have something fun to do in these last few weeks.  (Matt does a World's Greatest Day for middle schoolers every year that is an all day/evening day of fun!  The preschool edition is an abbreviated day so accommodate naps and hopefully avoid meltdowns!) Jenn's two girls were looking forward to World's Greatest Day, but sadly Allie got sick and wasn't able to come.  We missed her!

Our first stop of the day was to see "Planes:  Fire and Rescue."  This is a sequel to the original "Planes" movie and was really cute.  There were a few questionable references that made Jenn and I glance at each other with big eyes, but thankfully they went right over the girls' heads.

I can't for the life of my figure out why these are sideways.  They are vertical when I load them, then sideways when I post.  Just turn your head a little..

Our next stop was to get pedicures!!!  Only Jenn had ever actually gotten a real one, so this was a first for Emma, Abby, AND me!  It was really fun!

Caleb was thrilled with the extra iPad time he got while we got pedicures.  He could have stayed with my mom, but he didn't want to miss the other fun stuff we had planned!  He was perfectly content.

Abby was amazed by all of the colors of nail polish!  She just stared at the display for a while before finally settling on a medium purple with sparkles on top.

I sat her up in the chair. They put a pillow behind her to have her sit up more. She looked a little nervous in the beginning, but was okay.

Once the pedicure started, Abby got totally into it. She loved splashing in the soaking tub and giggled when it tickled. Although I couldn't capture it on camera, she had this cute little smile on her face most of the time.  She really enjoyed the whole experience!

Although I don't typically want anyone to touch my feet, I have to say that it was really nice!

Abby and Emma both enjoyed getting their toes done!  Emma was already planning the next time she came!

Check out our pretty toes!  (Caleb wanted to prove that he did not get his toes done!)

Sparkly toes

Our last stop was to Sweet Frog for some froyo!

Evidence of a fun day!

It was a perfect day...The World's Greatest Day, in fact!
