Start with a store that offers little shopping carts and let them be in charge of picking out produce and putting the groceries in their own cart:
Finally, if they don't crash into other shoppers or knock down displays (which will surely happen someday), they get a donut.
We all drive home calm and happy. We spent more than we planned to since I was able to take my time and browse more, but I think it was well worth it.

Isn't the first day of school so bittersweet? I found myself crying after he went into his classroom. Lucky for me, he is beyond excited about school. In fact, last night he was acting like he does on Christmas Eve - he asked me if he could go to bed early becasue he wanted to wake up and go to 3rd grade. So early to bed it was, snuggled and cozy in my room for one last slumber party of the summer before 3rd grade.

I wanted a cute logo to go with my photography and there was only one person I wanted to hire to design it. Jamie at Studo JK, she is amazing. I blogged about her talents once before here. I absolutely adore everything she does. She was a delight to work with and created a logo beyond my expectations that made me giddy. She even created a button for my blog (please feel free to snag it for your blog) and gave me ideas and tools for even more ways to improve my blog.

My sister-in-law called me one morning and told me that some Firefighters would be at a park near them spraying children. I couldn't stop laughing at the thought and was so excited that I could hardly stand it. Oh my, was it ever fun. You could not have been there and not have a smile from ear to ear the whole time. I can't wait to do it again next year. I am dying for the station by our house to come do it for us, I made one attempt to arrange it and failed. I may give it another try. Does anyone in our neighborhood know the firefighters down the street? Can anyone pull some strings? I think it was the funnest, happiest evening of our summer, for kids and adults alike.
We sort of developed a crush on the firemen (come on, who doesn't?) In fact, my mom suggested I take a picture of the back of their shirt and as I was shooting she said, "Jane, I told you to shoot his back, not his rear end!" ha ha ha, she was kidding people!

I think it is time to stop calling them "the babies". They absolutely love ladybugs (or "ladies" as they call them) so we threw a party with all things ladies.
