A Blustery Day

I was watching the weather and decided to ignore the advice on "stay in side wind gusts will be between 70 -100 mph" I thought that it would be fun to go to the mall instead. I loaded up all four kids and headed to the mall for story time at the library. I promptly at 11:30 only to find out that story time was at 11! So we checked out books and did some shopping. When it was time to leave I packed up the kids only to find that Natalie had exploded all over her clothes and therefore got a new outfit at Old Navy. Once again got the kids ready to go, opened the door to the outside and experienced several gusts of wind. The first took Natalies blanket and landed it in a muddy puddle. The next took the clothes that I had in the back of the car that I am donating to good will. I chased them down and also recovered a helmet that had escaped. I quickly loaded the kids in the car and then chased down my new double stroller that had run away. I then spent the next five minutes trying to figure out how to fold the stroller up but the wind was so strong and my hands so frozen I just couldn't do it. And this is why I drove all the way home with my double stroller jammed in the back of my car unfolded. Next time I think I will stay in.
