A Surprise Visit to Toys “R” Us

My job as a career man is to be creative and always be thinking on my feet. My job as a dad is no different and I love the challenge of planning fun and adventurous things that keep our lives interesting.

On Saturday I was thinking about one of my favorite things to do as a kid and I remembered what it was like to visit Toys “R” Us. I could spot a store a mile away and I’m pretty sure I begged us to stop for that entire mile and than some. Sometimes I got lucky, sometimes I didn’t.

I want my kids to experience that same excitement, so Amy shot across the street to the bank, grabbed a little bit of cash (in all singles of course) and we got in the car with the kids who had no idea where we were going. Here’s how it played out.
