Wal-Mart, Turtles, and Tractors

Today I was talking to Connie on the phone, and she asked how far we lived out of town. I told her we were about 20 minutes from Wal-Mart. She found that humorous...that my reference point was Wal-Mart. It's kind of like Emily getting a kick out of our "big outing" being to Wal-Mart and Wendy's one day. What can I say...we live in the sticks. =)

On that note, it reminds me of the other day when I was taking Asher to Dina's, and I was on the phone with her while I was on my way so that she could tell me when to turn, etc. She told me that they had been doing road work, so if I couldn't get through just to let her know and they would just come carry him over or something. It cracked me up. I feel like we're on "Little House on the Prairie" or something. =) By the way, I got through.

And today Asher saw his first turtle and rode on his first tractor (other than Poppie's riding lawn mower). We were driving down one of our little camp roads with Daddy and we saw a turtle, so we stopped and got out to look at it. He thought it was cool...kind of like the chickens we have here. He is also really into those. Then after lunch, Daddy was going back out to mow a field, so Asher took a short ride with him on the tractor. It's pretty cute seeing him learn about all this new stuff. We like our boy...and so do the people at Wal-Mart. =)

I love that you love Wal-Mart! Find cheap entertainment where you can, right?!? You'll have to visit our new one when it opens... I think it is going to be the Mecca for all Wal-Mart shoppers. :)

I think it is great that you are getting to live a simple country life (not that it is easy). I sometimes wish for a slower pace in a smaller town. I do however think that it is HILARIOUS that Wal-Mart is such a big part of your world.

Oh, Sara... I can just picture you now making your daily trips to Wal-Mart. My sister in law does the same thing in Sapulpa, OK. Every day she goes to Wal-Mart. And last Christmas when everyone in my family was searching for the PS3 (for my little cousin)- she just walked into her Wal-Mart and found one sitting on the shelves. Easy as pie. So we all know that her Wal-Mart in OK has everything a person could want. Keep enjoying your trips! I bet Asher will be saying "Wal-Mart" before you know it!
