The Story of Grocery Shopping|Life Stories Series

Welcome to part IV of my “Life Story Series.”

If you missed out on last month, feel free to click here: “The Story of Christmas Vacation.

In case you need a refresher, “Life Story Series” is a 12 month personal project that myself and a group of  very talented photographers are participating in.  It shows just a little glimpse into our lives. It’s a way for us to capture our memories creatively – just us.  At the end of this post you’ll find a link to one of my photographer friends that’s playing along and she’ll be linking to someone else. It’s a whole big circle of stories in pictures. So grab a cup of coffee (or tea, or wine), click through and enjoy!

This month – it’s the dreaded grocery shopping.

Having two 2-year-olds and a soon-to-be-one-year-old, I get asked all the time: “How do you go grocery shopping?”

Well, I’ll show you. It’s really not as difficult as you may think as long as you go with your spouse (as seen here) or a kid-friendly supermarket. And by kid friendly I mean they have the ginormous-hard-to-maneuver shopping carts – because they’ll hold 3 toddlers (4 actually, but we won’t go there).

First, we get ready to go out the door. I’m not going to lie – this part is often quite a challenge.

We get into our carts.

We fiddle with buckles and zippers.

In the “Shop along” (yes, that’s what it’s called), the girls entertain their brother.

We paroose the aisles.

We search for the perfect produce.

We are king of the carriage.

And because either we’re crazy or it’s impossible to find everything we need at just one store –  we move on to a new store -with a new cart.

Beep, beep.

We get a little silly.

Okay, okay – a lot silly.

And we ring ourselves out.

I hope you enjoyed this little glimpse into the everyday. If you’ve enjoyed the “Life Story Series” CLICK RIGHT HERE and be sure to like my facebook page so you don’t miss out on Part V!

They look like they are having so much fun! I love the angles and perspectives you used!

You deserve a medal for every shopping trip! That looks exhausting. Fabulous pictures! You’ll be SO happy to have these for your albums. Great memories. I do not envy the day when the little car is no longer entertaining enough and they want “out” or want to “help”. 2-year old help is just never helpful. Great pics!

Oh I love this! It reminded me of grocery shopping with my trio at this age- two in the car part, one on top…. so fun. 🙂
For them their favorite part was the free cookie from the bakery 🙂

Okay, this post was AWESOME! I love the fisheye's! I balk at taking a 3 & 5 yr old to the store. I don't feel I have the right to complain EVER again 🙂

I totally want a fisheye!!

This was a very fun post! I can't help but picture you in the grocery store with your high powered ginormous camera! And poor Bryan – did he have to do all the shopping and kid-tending while you were busy snapping pictures? He looks very unhappy (or maybe he's just focused on checking out) in that last photo. This was great! I love catching up on the Frank family adventures!

Grocery shopping with kids is sure entertaining and exhausting!

I love that trolley with the car at the front. How awesome is that! Loving the fish eye.

I think you are BRAVE Danielle! I don't go grocery shopping with my kids and I only have two and one of them is almost six! Although, the car cart makes it look almost fun! Loved this peek into your day!

Great peek into your shopping trip!

LOVE THESE SO MUCH! I am such a fan of yours and totally adore your kids! Your husband's pretty cute too. 🙂

I could go on and ON about how I love these! They really are fantastic and you captured everything so perfectly. I have to say I really love the “king of carriage” shot. Fabulous work

I totally feel like I’ve been on the adventure with you! What fun captures!

After seeing your fisheye images I NEED one. I love this and looks like your kiddos do as well.

taking kids to the store is always an adventure!!!! love that you documented this!!!!
