Four new tires and knowing everything is now safe.....priceless

Three happy meals and three value meals at McDonald's........$32
Smiling faces huddled in a booth for six.......priceless

Six tickets to see the long-awaited movie Home.....$31
Hearing giggles from the seats next to mine......priceless

Popcorn, candy and drinks for six.......$51
Watching munching crunching faces light up.....priceless

Good thing we went to a matinee........$3 saved
Not having to fight a crowd.....priceless

To Come:
Wednesday's trip for the boys to a Tiger's game.....$happy birthday!
Dad watching a game in the rain with his boy during opening week.....priceless
