Since Parker starts school soon, we went today to let him pick out a backpack. I had already gone to Wal-Mart and didn't really like their selection, so we went to Target. Target had an awesome selection. I picked out about 6 of them for Parker to choose from. Most of them had characters on them, like Spider Man and Cars, because I thought that was what he would want. Oh, no! Parker goes and picks out his own. He chooses a black and white camoflauge backpack that was $30! The ones I was picking out were $10 and $15.

I tried to sway him from the $30 backpack because there was no way I was spending that much! All it is going to hold is a change of clothes, his lunch box, and a folder. There was no convincing him to get one of the others. Finally my mom suggested to him that we go to another store to see if there was one that fit him better. Somehow, that worked! So, we headed to Wal-Mart.

This time, I didn't make the mistake of letting him get out of the buggy. I picked out two $10 backpacks and let him choose which one he wanted. I think a selection of 6 was just too many for him to decide upon.

Well, he picks it out, puts it on, and we start walking away. Peyton starts throwing a fit and screaming, "Backpack, backpack, backpack", at the top of her lungs! I had no idea she even knew how to say the word. So, we headed over to the little girl section of the store and I found ONE little bitty Dora backpack. She doesn't even know or care who Dora is, but it was the only one they had. It is actually pretty cute!

My mom said that she would buy Peyton's, since I had to buy Parker's. Can we say spoiled?!!? Of course I had to take pictures. I'm sure the people in Wal-Mart thought I was crazy. So, here are some pics of our backpack adventure today.

Parker wearing his new backpack. It's almost as big as he is!!!He was trying to take off with a contact lens case.
I think this pic is so darn cute!
Peyton wearing her new backpack. She was SO proud!
This is the best one I could get of them together.
The rest of them looked like this.

They got to ride the ice cream truck on the way out.
I loved that it had a seat for both of them!
Here's Granna again with her two babies!
