our first experience without any type of stroller at a mall, and it went well! i'm not sure how much would have been accomplished if we would have been actually looking for something, but we were just out to be entertained.
we ended our day at the grocery store at the mall. it was much bigger than the mini-mart close to our hotel, and so interesting! whole aisles of cheeses, yogurts, and breads. mmmm.
thing 1 insisted that i take a picture of the cart-pulling tractor. he now comments every time we go to a store with carts that "they need to get a tractor to pull their carts," and is quite disgusted to see people pushing them back to the store.
