Rory had to run into Menards and I stayed in the car with the kids. To help keep everyone occupied I conducted a little interview.
Becca: What is your favorite thing to eat?
Elsie: Lunch!
Ivar: Hot Dogs!

Becca: What is your favorite place to be?
Elsie: Buttya!
Ivar: The haircut place!

Becca: What is your favorite song?
Elsie: Jesus!
Ivar: doodoodoodoo (Thomas theme song)

Becca: What is your favorite store?
Elsie: ABC Toy Store
Ivar: The new YMCA!

Elsie: Oh, new socks?
Becca: Yes, they are new.
Elsie: Oh! From Target?
