Shop, shop, shopping with kids!

Payson’s been bringing elephant around with him everywhere again. He still uses elephant’s trunk to rub the end of his nose with.  photo 146eresized_zpsea5a9439.jpg

Sierra comes up to me and says, “Mom, take a picture of me with this BBQ sauce!” (We didn’t even buy BBQ sauce, she just wanted to pose with it, haha)  photo 148eresized_zps9f452b54.jpg

Ember fell asleep in the car on the drive over. Ember is the biggest grump when she wakes up and refuses to walk into stores. I usually hold her (and Everett in his carseat) while walking into the store and then put both of them in a cart. Problem is her in the seat of the cart and Everett’s carseat in the basket of the cart fills it up and there’s no room for food! So I wisely wore her in the ergo this shopping trip. It was perfect! I didn’t have to worry about keeping an eye on her, she was happy as a clam, and there was a bit of extra room in the cart!  photo 153eresized_zpsb9dcbbe3.jpg photo 154eresized_zps63d679db.jpg photo 163eresized_zps6b104036.jpg

Somehow I was convinced to buy three pairs of shoes. Brooke, Sierra, and Payson each got a new pair of tennis shoes in a size up. These kids and their fast growing feet!  photo 156eresized_zpsab3febc2.jpg photo 168eresized_zps7066d275.jpg

I bribed my kids with a quarter machine toy at the end if they were good. Surprisingly, they were all perfect! It was such a relief to shop and have them all stay mellow, not touch stuff, and stay near me!  photo 171eresized_zps4f5edab8.jpg

Once at home Everett was the one in the ergo while I made dinner! We had beef stroganoff that night and it was so good! (Paula Deen’s recipe on the food network website)  photo 183eresized_zpsf6cc7dd7.jpg
