Sadie had reached the end of her rope midway through the food shopping portion of the trip. If it wasn't a three hour round trip drive the shopping might have been something that took two days. Instead we combined toy shopping, random things we need shopping (which apparently include Princess Snow Boots for Sadie) and food shopping for one very, very long trip.
Thus I should have expected the meltdown that occurred in Produce, when Sadie, who was more than a little overwhelmed, decided that she just couldn't take it anymore and started shrieking at the top of her lungs. Let's just say checkout was not the high point of the day. But, Sadie was thrilled when we got home and she learned that she could actually wear her beautiful boots (I'm not sure what she thought they for, but I don't think that she recognized them as shoes right away. They are so different from the shoes she has! So much taller and shinier!).
So today's pictures are of Sadie wearing her new boots. It took several tries before she could even stand up in them and then walking was a little wobbly, but I'm sure she'll get the hang of it! And her toes will be toasty warm!
