Thanks to Emily Lybbert I was able to remember to go to the Old Navy $1 Flip Flop Sale on Saturday. I thought I was going to be the first one there since I was arriving at 8:45 am, 15 minutes before the store was supposed to open. I was very excited. When I got there, I was a bit disappointed to see people already coming out of the store with large shopping bags in hand. It had opened at 7 for the special event. I rushed in and found flip flops in all colors and sizes. It wasn't too crowded yet. After buying 15 pair for myself and putting the bags in the car, I realized, I hadn't gotten any for anyone else in my family. So I went back into the store at 9:15 and the masses were beginning to scramble for the last few pairs of kid sizes and colors. I got there just in time to find 6 or 7 pair for each girl. And the line was already starting to grow. I got out just in time!

Bringing these home was better than Christmas. The girls didn't stop shrieking. It was so fun. So many flip flops! So many colors!

And then there was Ben...pretending to have free time. Pretending not to care about the one pair of flip flops I got for him.
He still refuses to wear them, even after seeing me go through 3 pair yesterday. The girls already have several pair outside and around the house. It's fun to have so many colors of shoes. And for only a dollar each! Thanks again Emily. Can't wait to have you here in Utah!
