BSM - "Let's Do Coupleerrands"



The other day I told Harrison that we were going to run a couple errands (and stop at a play area in the mall - surprise for him.) Harrison had to get dressed for the occasion. He insisted on his fireman outfit, when he was ready he announced, "Mommy, let's do coupleerrands now."

He is all smiles! Off we go, next stop - Ikea, Target, Jay-Jay Jetplane play area.

It was almost 11AM, we got in the car drove a few miles down the road and this is what I saw when I a glanced in the rear view mirror.




Back to the station to get some rest...


Maybe next time.

I LOVE seeing kids dressed up in outfits when I'm out doing errands. How fun!

Maggie said...

That is SO CUTE! I love that he got dressed for the errands - adorable! But the outfit isn't nearly as cute as the one of him sleeping...so sweet!

I love it - that lil grin in the back is so cute. LoL - my guys love to dress up to and we just go with it... Thanks for sharing...

Oh, no. But he looked so excited. precious. V did that for the first time about a month ago, 'cept she was a cheerleader. I almost told her that dress up was for home. Not sure if she liked all of the attention she got though.

he's got to be the cutest and happiest fireman ever! That smile could help the hardest heart. And if one of those hearts somehow didn't melt at the smile, there's no way it could escape the sweetness of the sleeping picture. Precious.

Man, I can't imagine having Ikea close enough for a quick errend....it's a full days adventure for us!!
