F is for FUN ;)

The kids and I went looking for some Easter clothes the other day. We met daddy for lunch, picked up his check and ran to the store. As soon as we got into the store, Taylors wheelchair decided it was going to be a pain! It started acting funny but we continued shopping. After about half and hour the chair completely locked up.

I put it in push mode and finished shopping. I was hoping that it would, I don't know, fix itself in the few hours we were shopping.

That didn't happen.

In case you didn't know, this is a power chair that weighs over 200 pounds so there was no way I could load it myself. I tried to call the wheelchair company to see if they could send someone to help me but after being on hold for 25 minutes I decided that wasn't going to happen. So I had to call Brian at work. He ended up coming to our rescue but it was a long 45 minute weight.

I was a tad bit agitated but from the very beginning of being a mother I have tried to keep things fun and help the kids learn to roll with the punches. So what a mom to do......

Load 'em up on junk food and play in the parking lot!

If you remember a few posts ago, I mentioned my kids love for pets. They don't really care what kind of pets they are but they find them where ever we go!

Daddy to the rescue!

Brian helped me load the chair, he left his car at the store and we took the chair to Millers for them to look at it. (Which seems like weekly lately.)

They fixed it and an hour later we headed back to get Brians car.

Only to find out he locked his keys in his car! See what I mean.....FUN! ;)

An hour later we were FINALLY on our way home. It was a long day but we made the most of it.
