Today was the first truly amazing day of spring and we took full advantage of it! It was sunny and warm and the perfect day to be outside, so we loaded the jogging stroller and the Boy into the car and headed to campus. Our first goal was to get a picture of him sitting on the infamous Nittany Lion Shrine, but there was a long line so we decided to wait until we were leaving campus. Then we headed to the bookstore to find a drawing pad for Michael. There was some sort of concert/festival type thing going on the big lawn in front of the HUB and a guitarist/singer was performing. The whole lawn was filled with pasty white coeds on blankets enjoying the day. Then we headed down to the main strip, browsed around a few stores and made a stop at the library where yours truly signed up for her own library card. We spent a good deal of time in the library and Max even fell asleep at one point in the stroller. By this point, I was getting hungry (and it's bad news bears on the grump factor when that happens!) so we decided to head to Mad Mex for dinner & margaritas on the outside patio so we could keep enjoying the weather. Everyone else and their mothers apparently had the same thought though, so we headed back towards home and went to another restaurant with a deck. All in all, it was a fantastic day spent with my favorite guys!
