  2. You're my hero! =) I hope to master this one day. I find it a bit challenging due to young kids in tow. How long did this adventure take you out of curiosity?

  3. Thanks Audra!

    Leann,
    We had two kids with us too...makes things a little challengng. First we always pack lunch for the grocery stop during lunch and the kids eat in the cart :) Second we have a bag of fruit snacks for the other store, then we pull-out the juice box at the last store. Strategy is all. ha! They will catch on one of these days... This adventure took about 2.5 hours including drive time and such. We did put the kids down for a nap inbetween too.

  4. Karissa - Nice shop girl!!
    Ohhhh - I remember the day when I thought it was challenging keeping my one and only child busy as I shopped . . . savor this moment . . . you will look back on it and think "Why did I EVER think that was challenging?" when you are hauling around 3 or more! HA! :-) I'm just teasing! :-)
