My Little Pack Mule

It was a beautiful morning and I wanted to take the kids for a walk while it was still cool. I also needed to go for groceries - so I decided to combine the two.

When we were first married I couldn't drive...and even if I could drive we only had one car. My dh was working (and working long hours and Saturdays some of the time) and I was at home with no job (due to immigration issues) and no children yet and knowing few people.

If I wanted to get somewhere I'd usually have to do it via "shank's mare". At some point I obtained this cart...handy for groceries as well as transporting laundry to the laundry room (sep. building in the apartment complex) from our apartment.

Then I learned to drive, we obtained another vehicle, we moved into a house and my pedestrian days were over. The cart hung out in the garage for many a year - rarely taken down except for the rare excursion to the Farmer's Market.

Today we took down the cart and the kids were VERY excited over who was going to be able to push/pull the cart empty and full!

We can walk to the grocery store in about 15 min - the way is kind of hilly, but my little pack mules had no problem.

Over the years I have thought about getting one of those carts. Of course it does help to have a couple of pack mules to do the work! It makes me happy to see children excited about doing work!
