I've joked around about walking half a mile to the grocery store on facebook. We really do that.
The other day the whole family walked to a Chinese food restaurant in the same shopping complex as the grocery store and then went grocery shopping afterwards. The kids didn't think much of it. They are used to walking to the store. Nevermind that nobody else does it around here.
Then today I was running an errand and passed by this.
Can you see it?
Here's a closer look.
Evidently we aren't the only ones walking to the grocery store. At least we don't push the cart full of groceries to our house after we check out. Not that I haven't thought about it. I just didn't figure my neighbors would appreciate seeing a woman with a grocery cart walking down the street. Hm...maybe I should reconsider...
And yeah I totally turned my car around and went back to take a picture of that grocery cart.
