When you are done reading our story, head around the circle, starting with one of my favorite photographers Sonja Stich.

We were given a mission – go to the store and get s’mores fixings.

So off we went, styling and ready to fulfill our mission.


Opening the door like the gentleman he is.


But then playing my least favorite game, “what’s the password?”


We arrive at our favorite place!


You can’t complete this mission without a little pick-me-up.


Okay, let’s do this!
“Stay focused, Mom, we have a shopping list!”

But everyone knows we can’t get out of this store in less than an hour.


How do we always end up here?  This doesn’t look like marshmallows.




We finally made it to the food aisles.
“The dogs want treats, too, Mom!”


Speaking of dogs…


So close to the checkouts, but how can we resist this diversion?

And here comes the text, “Where are you guys?  Everyone is here for the party!”
Okay, okay, we’re coming..


And we made it in plenty of time ;-).

Sonja Stich - This is so funny, Mel! And this could be us. I wonder, did you buy him all the stuff…? I always end up with much more than I had planned to.

admin - Things we bought that we didn’t come for — Mickey Mouse dress with tutu bottom, Pokemon slippers, 2 shirts for me (that I will be returning – no time to try on there 😉 ). This is pretty good for us! We didn’t buy any accessories or doggie ice cream treats.

Sonja Stich - I love that you do that for them 🙂 But, wait, there is ice cream for dogs in your country???

admin - Sonja – it appears there IS ice cream for dogs, but this is the first I have seen it in the Target frozen food section. It’s possible that it was just ice cream for humans with a dog on it, but I didn’t want to get too close for fear of being wrangled into buying it ;-).

Meredith Rockefeller - I’m amazed you got out of there without the Minecraft pick axe! Such a fun story! Bring on lazy summer nights and s’mores!
