It’s the small things.

On Tuesdays, I post a picture (or two) and just a few words.

Sonia and Zoe like to come with me when I need to take my van in for a tire rotation. This is not because tire rotations are very exciting, but because there’s a free hot chocolate machine at the shop.

And there’s also a vending machine, which is awfully fun if you remember to bring a bit of spending money with you.

Vending machine candy is rather expensive per pound.   But they are so happy about the experience of using the machine, I actually think they’re getting a lot of bang for their buck. 😉

I love the age timeframe when children get so excited about the smallest things. It really makes you step back and be grateful for the little, amazing things in life! Your post also reminded me of 1 thing to write in my Gratitude Journal today...all of the men in my family (including my husband) are mechanically inclined and own/work in a field that requires those skills. I have never in my 16 years of driving had to pay for labor on a vehicle, and always pay wholesale cost on parts thanks to my dad's company. The little things :)

Growing up (probably close to 30 years ago), we used to go to Chicago a lot and stay in this hotel where kids ate free, so we got to choose hot chocolate as a beverage--with whipped cream! To this day, I still have that memory and remember the joy of that treat. So, yes, experience is totally worth it.

I have to laugh because 1, I totally remember being super excited as a kid to use a vending machine or be allowed candy, and 2, because in that photo they look super bored :D

Heh, that's because they'd finished the schoolwork they brought and were engrossed in some YouTube animal videos! So they were just focused on that. ;)

I like to get a free hot drink when I take my car in for service. For many years we flew through the Minneapolis airport and my daughter always loved to buy something from a vending machine, and she liked to buy me a snack as well. I think it's a novelty factor.
