One for the Record Books
Let me give a little background before I begin my story. We live way out in a small small town. We have a teeny tiny grocery store and the closest grocery where you could do weekly shopping is 20 minutes away. The closest Walmart is over an hour away and actually in another state. ha! Target is a good 2.5 hours away.
Now onto the story.
Since Eli was born, back in Jan, I have not been to Walmart with all 3 kids by myself. Sheldon has always been with me. If he wasn't where he could go, I would haul all 3 boys to the grocery, or just order what I needed off of Amazon. (That could be why our so nice UPS lady comes almost everyday to out house.)
One day this week, I decided we needed to go to Walmart. Max and Crocker both had a list of school supplies to get and I was just wanting to get out of the house. So, I loaded everyone up and we took off. The ride up there was uneventful. Eli snoozed off and on and the big boys watched a movie. When we got to Walmart, Eli needed to eat and he chowed down in the parking lot. The big boys didn't even noticed that the car stopped.
I knew that Eli could not sit in his carseat in the basket of the cart like he usually does because I would need the basket for school supplies. So, I was in luck and saw our new favorite cart outside just waiting for us! Max usually walks in stores, but I figured what the hey! There was an extra seat anyway!
The boys acted so so good and we even stopped for lunch before heading home. Another luxury of going to the "big city". I forsee many more trips in our future and maybe I will get crazy and drive to Target one day!
