If you are the parent of a preschooler or two
and you happen to be at the mall on a rainy day in July
after thunderstorms closed your favorite swimming hole
then a roll of pennies might just buy you
an hour of peace
sitting on a bench in said mall watching said children throwing said pennies into the many fountains available
It definitely will buy you some smiles!
We hung out at the mall one afternoon after the weather refused to cooperate with our attempts to swim at the pool.
We shared some chinese food and indulged in a trip to the cookie store too.
the kids were having fun just horsing around
which allowed me to have fun taking pictures of them having fun
I'm sure some people wondered about our well being
but most seemed not to notice
Anyway, we managed to occupy ourselves for a couple hours
before trudging back out into the rain to make our way home
if your expectations are not too high
a penny will buy you quite a bit these days!
and a few more smiles too!
One dollar's worth of pennies = A million dollar's worth of smiles and memories
