Our next stop was the Candy Store (aka Mr. Bulky's). Evan had never been in a Candy Store before. We've all heard the saying, "It's like a kid in a candy store...", and Evan was truly a kid in the candy store! His eyes got so big when he saw all the candy. He kept wanting to open all the bins and just reach his hand in. Everything was, "Oh, I want this!" He left with a candy necklace (which was gone before we even got home!), a Woody Pez dispenser, a lollipop, and a bag of Jelly Bellies. The Jelly Bellies were really for Daddy (another kid in the candy store!). Just for the record, we did not let him eat it all today. He ate his candy necklace, about 5 pieces of Pez, and several licks from the lollipop. And no, for some reason, he didn't want to take a nap today :).
|Huge fan of the 'sucker'.|
|He said he wanted it to look like his sucker!|

|"..the clock struck 9, the mouse ran down. Hickory Dickory Dock!"|
By this time, the clock base was dry so we attached the face of the clock onto it. I had made a little mouse out of an egg carton and fixed it up so that Evan could make the mouse go up and down the clock as we sang, "Hickory Dickory Dock." He thought this was so neat! Then he just wanted to play with the mouse and took it on walks around the house!
|Hickory Dickory Dock! The mouse ran up the clock.|
|Petting his mouse!|
|Taking his mouse for a walk!|
|Jumping around the clock.|
|Riding his bike around the clock.|
