shopping trip

We made it into town today to get my brother and sister-in-law's gift for their baby shower. Who knew Babies R Us was such a hub of activity? I saw more pregnant women and tiny babies there than I'd seen in a long time. Amazing. I'm so glad I'm finished with that season of my life.

After printing out the registry, we went on the trek for the gift: a Graco stroller system. Of course, when Billy and Wendy registered, Graco was still making the model they chose. Now, they've quit making that particular model and are just selling out what they've got left. I guess people's taste in fabrics are so fickle that Graco has to reupholster their gear even before it's all been bought out. We wound up getting the system from a BRU store in Lafayette and we'll pick it up on our way to the lake next weekend. It wound up being okay. We found some other really cute things for Baby Will that I won't mention--just in case Wendy's reading this!!

After shopping we ate lunch at Cheeburger! Cheeburger! I know, I know, cheesy take-off on the Billy Goat Tavern routine from classic SNL, but a great burger none-the-less. The reason I'm telling you about this is because my sweet, skinny boy, Zac ate a gigantic cheeseburger so he could be posted on the "under 12" wall of fame. The burger for the under 12 crowd is the "Serious." It's a 10 ounce burger dressed out the way you want it. I only ate the "semi-serious" burger and was stuffed. Zac finished every bite of his fully dressed burger. They took his picture wearing a hamburger hat holding a huge stuffed hamburger and let him sign the photo before they posted it on the wall. He was so proud. He looked like a snake who swallowed a rat! He said that next time he's going to go for the "Famous Pounder" so he can get on the adult board. Normally, I don't advocate eating until you're sick as a dog, but that burger will probably be Zac's one meal for the next several days. He's like that; he'll pig out one meal then pick at his meals for the next several days.

After the gigantic burgers we went to the Coca-Cola bottling plant to pick up some Powerade drinks I ordered for our all-star team, then we finally headed home.

Tonight we go to Denham Springs for the first of, hopefully, only 2 games in our district tournament. I'll let you know how that comes out.

I remember one of my friends talking about buying a playpen with "last year's fabric colors" and getting a deal on it. Me, I was always pretty oblivious about baby equipment color trends.

I'm loving your blog!! Tell Zac "congratulations!".
