If you know our family at all, you know that two of our favorite things are sweet treats and great books. On Friday afternoon, a local restaurant put them together for a winning combination: Milk & Cookies Storytime with Miss Anastasia!
We arrived at Orderup at 3:00 and were greeted at the door by a very friendly employee. The front of the restaurant was decorated cheerfully with red and white balloons, and the tables and chairs had been rearranged into an inviting semicircle. After picking our spot, another employee came by with coloring sheets and cups of crayons. I was impressed with both the level of detail and friendly customer service.
Miss Anastasia arrived and interacted with each child in the circle before sitting down to read our first book, If You Give a Mouse a Cookie. We were all given a sample of Orderup’s famous scratch-made chocolate chip cookies and a cup of milk to enjoy during the story. (Seriously, the best cookie I have ever had!) Miss Anastasia kept the kiddos laughing with three more books and then we spent a few more minutes chatting with the other families who came.
