Don’t worry we found it

It’s just me, blogging about Walmart once again. Ha. Anyone with kids knows what a process it is just to leave the house. It’s kind of like packing for a long trip, several varieties of snacks, changes of clothes, binki’s and bottles, toys, sanitizing equipment, and of course a first aid kit. Okay, I don’t really have one of those, but it wouldn’t be a bad idea. Right?  That’s just part of the process that must happen before we leave the house. I mean there are still diapers to change, faces to wipe, hair to be combed, and inevitable last minute disaster “look what I found in the garbage can mommy” type stuff.

I personally believe….that every shopping cart in  America should be patterned after Costco’s double kid cart, it’s an inspiration. My girls can keep each other entertained the whole shopping trip. (yes, I know, the whole kissing thing will have to end at some point).

If I’ve got to take the girls with me shopping I usually just wait until I have reinforcements. After all, I never know what those two little furballs are going to have up their sleeves. But today I was working on a project that could not be finished without a trip to Wally-World. When I go to Walmart I have to take my double stroller and there really isn’t much room underneath to store my loot, it can be a pain in the royal highness.

The girls actually ended up being pretty good today, I checked out with out a hiccup and walked to my car feeling rather victorious. I got Ila all strapped in and started putting Fae in the car, that’s when I realized she was missing a shoe. Uuuug. So I put them both back into the stroller and started retracing our steps. I practically had to lie on the floor to see under the shelves. I’m sure people were wondering what the heck I was doing, “That lady’s lost a lot more than her marbles!”

The girls sang happy little songs through the rest of the store, it was almost like they had planned the whole thing. I was about to give up looking when I saw it….. sitting perfectly upright waiting for me, gleaming in the fluoresent light. Hallelujah!

When I finally got out of the store all the high school kids where headed to Walmart for lunch from across the street. A group …… of girls started gathering around the twins ooh-in and aww-in like is natural for girls when they see babies. I finally made my way through the herd, and as I’m walking away I hear this conversation.

“I'm totally gonna have twins”
“yeah, me too,  a boy and a girl”

Man, it really doesn’t seem that long ago and I was one of them, making what I thought would be a perfect plan for my future.

I always seem to forget that I’m living the dream life. ( ; Ha.

p.s. The project I was working on was my newest attempt to get my girls to eat their vegetables, they got sick of sweet pea mac and cheese and lettuce waffles. So I took advantage of their new fascination with drinking through straws and made vegetable- juice with fresh produce from my mother’s garden.

Here’s the recipe: The quantities are up to you
Swiss Chard
Green Pepper
Pineapple juice

I just pureed it all up, skins and all

I tried some and…….it’s vile----But apparently I made it sweet enough, cuz the girls slurp it right up!

Craig and Kaisha's Wedding!

I had to drop her and run--this was the best we could do-Ha

Such a cute couple!
These two were ripping the table clothes of the tables at the wedding luncheon. Little varmints.

We ate a lot of sugar-- anything to keep the girls happy

Wrestling--they were giggling so much. Such well behaved children. 

 Wha-da ya know, little girls love little girls

We are so happy for you Craig and Kaisha! Congratulations!

Taylor Family Vacation

A couple weeks ago we went on the Taylor Family Summer Vacation. St. George, was hot! But that didn't stop us from mountain biking, hanging out at the pool, seeing the musical Aladin at Tuacahn, and having a ton of fun!

My favorite part of our trip was our Pine Creek Hike--It's been years since I've been and it was awesome! A big thanks to Mom and Kristina who watched the girls so I was able to go!
