I jumped at the chance to visit this Whole Foods Market store because I thought it would be fun for the girls to have one more last minute Back to School Bash!  The promise of face painting and a magician was enough to get the girls excited.  First stop was picking up a free healthy pre-packed lunch for the girls.  The pre-packed lunch consisted of a banana, carrots, diced chicken, kind bar, go-go squeeze and a juice box.  Yum!

I’m so used to having paper tickets, and then having to carry them all day.  I was very happy I wouldn’t have to do that today.
