as amy so kindly let me know that the story did not end funny, it did:, however, i just forgot to put it in.
you see, i was in such a hurry to get out of the store that i just put my pile of stuff on a shelf somewhere.
by that time, jeff and aaron were waiting outside for us. I got to the car with the stroller. when jeff got out of the car to help get the kids in & everything, he noticed sara playing with something and asked me what is was. i looked at sara and started laughing. apparently, i was in such a hurry that i forgot to see if the kids had anything in their possession anywhere. luke had given her a car to play with. and she still had it. we walked right out of the store with it.
well, we thought it was funny anyway.
p.s. yes, i took it back in.
