Sunday, August 9th, we took a trip out to Lodi Outlet Mall to do some back-to-school shopping. In all actuality, we just wanted something to do. It was crazy hot, but we were in and out of a/c all day, stopped to get soft pretzels (which X "mmm'd" about the whole way through), and had a pretty great trip. You wouldn't guess it from this photo though! LOL -

Ben had piled on top of Xavier, claiming he was "soo very tired". Just look at them. So funny that this occured while Nick was looking for new work shirts. I guess that's B's way of saying - "hurry up, this is just not exciting enough for me."

What was very exciting for Ben was ... a TRAIN! There's a track that winds through the mall and all around the grounds. This was a huge incentive for Ben to mind his manners and be patient while we went to stores. The reward was a train ride.


The beginning of the well-deserved reward:

I'm glad it was a good shopping trip. I laughed when you talked about X "mmmm"ing as he ate. Carson started doing that a few weeks ago and it makes us laugh! So cute.
