The boys had a teacher workday recently and we decided to meet my mom and head north for the day to the Green Valley book fair, near Harrisonburg. I've blogged before about this amazing warehouse sale of discounted books. It's a happy place for sure.
We all found books we loved. I got several animal memoirs - heartwarming stories about animals who changed their owners' lives for the better in some way.
Then we headed to Wright's Dairy-Rite. Pierce has been begging to return there since we went a couple of years ago. This little diner has been an institution in Staunton for many years.
Pierce loves it because he gets to phone in our orders from a phone right at the booth. He also likes the jukebox.
I like it because they have chocolate soft serve cones that are dipped in peanut butter shell. That's right, chocolate and peanut butter. My favorite combination! And they are as delicious as you might imagine.
It was a fun day, and a good way to see out the dreary winter months.
