My day in pictures...and captions

Carson is providing me with the immeasurable opportunity to have two kids before I have two kids. I realize that having two toddlers is nothing like having a newborn and a toddler. However, some things aren't that different. For instance, loading and unloading everyone into a car or making sure all are happy once you arrive at the destination. Therefore, I am taking this little opportunity to practice being the mom of two kids. I have gone to the store before with Carson and Lila, but I usually put Carson in my Ergo carrier. That is basically the same as being held so of course she eats it up. The Ergo is no longer totally comfortable so I decided to attempt the gigantic, two-seater, "driving" cart with the girls. I am still shocked by how well it went. I'm not shocked because I thought it would be miserable. I was just very unsure of the amount of items I needed to get (a lot) in correlation with the tight quarters of the cart. I am also still shocked that three people asked me if they were twins. Really? You have a very tall, leggy, blonde with blue eyes right next to a quite petite, dark hair and dark eyes munchkin. Twins? Really? Anyway, here's the rundown:
Lila takes control while Carson looks unsure...

...Carson says "now we're talkin'. A ride and someone feeding me...I'm sold"...

...Carson takes the wheel as it seems Lila has grown tired of the situation. 

I also had the great pleasure tonight of meeting two friends at Canvas and Cocktails. While it may seem a waste since two of us are pregnant, it really wasn't. I say false advertising. You have to bring your own cocktails for goodness sake. Regardless, a good time was had by all!


  1. I am sitting in my kitchen alone at 6:15 am and laughing out loud so much that I even started crying! These pics and your captions are priceless!

  2. I love it! The grocery store is one of C's favorite places, but she has never been able to ride in the cool car cart before. And I'm very glad there wasn't any shoving happening while they drove!

  3. no doubt that make grocery shopping more interesting! and i love the pictures! let me know if you guys ever want to go again! i have seen some cute christmas paintings at sip n' strokes coming up!
