First of all, lately both Dave and I absolutely dread putting Rachel in her car seat. "Why?" you ask. The answer is "She is a very strong and wriggly worm when it comes to putting her in it if she doesn't want to be there." Case in point:
As you may have guessed, while we were in Saskatoon, Target opened there. We all went on opening day and Dad was hanging out with Sam while Mom, Rachel and I browsed clothing. Then we met up with Dad. Notice who we didn't meet up with??!?!! Yeah, Sam decided he didn't want to spend time with Opa and took off on him. I was freaking out as Dad has circled the whole store three times trying to find him. So I had just alerted store personnel when Sam came dashing out from the cash register line. I yelled at him and cried. Sam thought it was all in good fun so now he is confined to carts at all stores in the near future.
After that little adventure, Mom and I left the kids with Dad and went to Target on our own. I was thrilled to be shopping without kids and we tried on clothes and looked around for two hours. It was awesome. I bought myself a necklace, a couple of shirts, a dress and I also bought clothes for Rachel for the fall, a couple of t-shirts for Runaway Sam and some birthday presents for my mom.
This dress/tunic will look much better with leggings and the long "pearl" necklace I got from my mom. (Oh yeah, besides shopping at Target I also went shopping in my mom's thrift store pile and have a couple of new necklaces, tank tops and a new dress. And my mom has less to take to the thrift store. Yay!)
I love how Rachel is holding all her new clothes in the one picture and yelling at me to not take her picture in one of them! I also love how all the colours at Target were mix and match and I was having fun getting Rachel to model different combinations :)
On the day we went mini-golfing and cruising on the river, we also stopped at the Mendel Art Gallery and I took pictures of some of the flowers in the conservatory.
And remember way back when (on Canada Day) I encouraged you to ask me questions about Canada??? Well, I haven't forgotten those and am working on a post (coming in the next week or so) which will give you all my answers. Sorry it's been so long since then :()
And I think that's enough randomness for one day. Tune in tomorrow for a more cohesive blog post about just one thing :)
