A Trip to Town

(taken from inside the car - sorry for the dirty windshield)

We took a trip to town yesterday (all 8 of us).
We hadn't been to our closest shopping town (a mere population of 5500) for several weeks.
Our small town has a population of just 600.

When did gas go up to nearly $4.00 a gallon again?  (I really don't mind this, though.  I actually think high gas prices are a good thing in the long run.)

Emily had her one year check-up (she turns one on Thursday!)

Along with a visit to our doctor, we went food shopping, thrift store browsing, and ice cream eating on what was a beautiful summer like day in September.


  1. Sounds like a lovely day! $4/gallon for gas sounds like a good price to me - in Canada it hasn't been that cheap in quite some time. :)

  2. Sounds like a lovely day. And I agree, in the long run, high fuel prices do make people think twice about taking their cars on quick errands they could easily walk to, or ride bikes, or take public transit.

  3. how can she possibly be one already?? Sounds like the perfect September day, even with ice cream..;j

  4. Happy almost birthday Emily! Amazing. Lots of September blessings to you and yours.
