Okay so first of all it hit 105 degrees in SLO that day. So HOT. Second of all, neither Gap nor Express had ANY shorts--bummer. SO, we make our way back to Becky's car. Shortly before we reached the car, we ran into Pastor Tim and Eden. Then we got to the car and I went to collapse the stroller...and it wouldn't collapse. I tried and tried but the mechanism was stuck. I am pouring down sweat, Kaitlyn is screaming her head off, and at this point I decide maybe we should just abandon the thing on the sidewalk.
But not Becky! She single-handedly wrestles this thing into the front seat of her four-door car, and somehow manages to climb in herself, with four wheels in her face! I sit (laughing hysterically) in the backseat with Kaitlyn, and we fully drove all the way to their house like that! Good thing Becky is so petite! Troy and Kevin had a good laugh at our expense, and Troy took some pics of the stroller in the front seat of the car. (Fortunately they also figured out what was wrong with it and fixed it.)
I am so glad we ran into Tim and Eden when we did, and not any later--how embarrassing if they'd (or anyone else we knew!) seen us a) unable to collapse the stroller, b) wrestling a big, upright stroller into the front seat of a car, or c) driving down the street with me in the backseat, the stroller in the front seat, and Becky squished into the driver's seat!
