Entertaining the Kid in the Store

Well, what was supposed to be a quick trip to Wal-mart recently turned into a three hour tour of the Gillian's Island kind thanks to a thunderstorm. We went in search of a swimsuit in case she wanted to get in the pool this summer. She can't swim so we were looking for a specific suit and a birthday present. We found one of the two along with a number of other items we didn't actually need but would come in handy. Actually we found me a suit and her a beach towel.

We walked around the store for a couple hours as she helped me to pick out a suit and we talked about all the displayed. We even checked the shelves for a birthday present which we did not find that day. Actually I'd later discover that we found it but we weren't sure at the time that was what we wanted to get the person we went shopping for.

A few days later a trip to the grocery store, while not make longer by storms ended up with a need to entertain the kid. Her choice of entertainment?

She wants to push the shopping cart as fast as she can. It's kinda fun to see how many obstacles we can avoid when we're in the store. She uses the opportunity to name every thing that she sees along the way and in some cases what food group it falls into.

Well, time to go back to work for now. This afternoon we stop to get gas and a gallon of milk that is our only errand today.
