SUPER CVS Trip 8/30

Today was the offical GRAND OPENING of our brand new CVS in Columbia, IL. We have had one all along, but it was very small and well... old. CVS out did their selves offering free coffee, donuts, face painting, gift bags with free CVS goodies, cards for free McDonald's $1 menu item, and even drawings for a girls and boy bike and gift cards to local restaurants. My daughter especially enjoyed the free balloon. They also had the St. Louis Cardinal's mascot "Fred Bird," Cinderella, a clown, and even St. Louis Ram's cheerleaders on hand to celebrate this big day!

We had a lot of fun - but there was still bargain hunting to be done!
