Maisey's eye has been healing really well, and besides the sleeping thing, she has pretty much returned to normal. So we took her out of the house today. I think she was pretty sick of being in our little apartment for 2 1/2 days. We decided to go to IKEA with our neighbors. They have a little girl named Tori who is 6 weeks older than Mais. Tori and Maisey have so much fun playing together. On the way to IKEA we stopped at Rumbi Island Grill to grab a late lunch/early dinner. It was delicious as normal. Then we went to the awesomest store in the whole world. We were there for over 3 hours, and Shaun actually enjoyed it. I don't think we have ever gone shopping together and Shaun have a good time. We found tons of things that we would love to buy, once we get to Oregon. So for now... this is the only thing we bought.

It was only $.59. What a bargain! We couldn't leave IKEA without buying something!

This is the fam at Rumbi! We had such a great time and Maisey was so good in the high chair.

Tim, Tori, Shaun, and Maisey in the elevator at IKEA. These two girls had so much fun looking at everything! And these two boys had fun pushing the carts. All four wheels on the carts turn. Shaun was amazed by this!

Shaun and Maisey are checking out the Hide-a-Bed. Shaun wanted to see if it was more comfortable than his grandparent's.

Maisey and I were trying out a really cute arm chair that would have looked so cute in Mais's bedroom. (If we had room for it.)

This sums up our trip. Maisey was wiped out by the end, so she slept in the cart.

We had a great time eating at the food court. The meatballs were delicious along with the chocolate cake.

We can't wait until Shaun starts his real job and we have a place of our own to decorate. We are so glad that there is an IKEA in Portland, because we will be frequent visitors.

If you haven't gone, I suggest you go! Happy Shopping!

I love that store too! Everything is so cheap, but not too cheap looking. It's so fun to walk through. I am glad that Maisey is doing well.

Ikea is a pretty fun store, we like to walk through when we are visiting family in Utah.
I made the cake using a heart cake pan. Then the rest of the batter went into a circle pan and I cut a part out for the stem. It was a fun cake to make!

I am so glad Maisey is feeling better. There is nothing like a hurting little one. I can't believe how adorable these pictures are. The sleeping picture is classic!

My visiting teacher just told me they had a birthday party for her 10 year old at Ikea. They played eye spy and had different people dress up and walk around the store. Then groups of kids went all over looking at them. Then they ate yellow and blue cupcakes. It was all her daughter's idea! Sounded like fun. File that idea for a few years down the road with Maisey! The IKEA possibilities are endless!

I love the picture of Maisey sleeping in the cart. That's exactly how I feel after a day of shopping!
