The Great Wal-Mart Adventure

Here are some pictures from a recent 3 ½ hour family outing…. to our local Walmart in the middle of the night.

Yes. Walmart.

Here’s what happened… a friend of ours from Kansas was passing through our area on a business trip and stopped in at our house for the afternoon, after which he was headed to said Walmart to put up a new bike rack with a local crew. Well, why didn’t we just go with him? The guys could help! The girls could shop! Etc, etc. So, that’s what we did.

 I love our randomness. We have a lifetime of wild/crazy/fun/ridiculous/precious memories because of it.J

So anyway... here we are at our home away from home….

 The Wilson guys in this crew are the ones sans hard hats, for the record.

 Allie and Lana chillaxin’ on some really comfy chairs they found on, oh, the fourteenth round of the store. *getting crazy looks* *and just smiling back*

Mom and Rachel, the faithful watchers-of-the-project.

After several hours, two unnamed individuals decided they were starving, and forthwith betook themselves to the closed-and-empty snack bar in the back of the store with their just-purchased-at-the-front-register snacks. Hey, why not?

Lana, as most of you know, goes a little crazy late at night, say after nine o’ clock or so. Enter the baby doll….

Levi….Man Of Steel.

Question: What store manager puts a bin of huge, bright, tempting bouncy balls in the middle of the aisle and expects that they won’t get played with in said aisle?
Answer: All of them.
Question: Are said managers’ expectations lived up to?
Answer: No.

At around midnight we decided to head home… not before saying goodbye to Nate with prayer in the toy section of Walmart. “Where two or more are gathered in My name, there I am in the midst of them.” Believe it! J

Jonah availing himself of a little refreshment for the ride home…

So ends another saga of life in this unpredictable family. Thanks for reading!

 Please excuse all the grainy cell phone photos… I’m not in the habit of bringing my camera to the grocery store, so I didn’t have it with me. I know, right?
