However, that is not necessarily equated with spending money! Long ago I learned to love the thrill of wandering through stores, hunting and gathering as needed.
And truth to be told, I learned from the best!
Yes, from my mom!
And while I don't know if my dad started out as an expert shopper when they first married, he can sure hang with the best of them now! In a rare photo, my mom and I are actually waiting on HIM as he looks at shoes!
He is SUCH a good sport about it since usually it's mom and I on the hunt. If I make sure he gets coffee along the way, all is well!
With my mom and dad, all shopping is fun, even for groceries at Tesco, the "Target/Walmart/Meyers" of this area, similar to whatever type of store you have near you that 'sells it all'!
We spent quite a bit of time in the clothing section of Tesco the other day, with me handing my dad all sorts of interesting things to try on. He was a very good sport.
And looks pretty hipster doesn't he?! 😄
Even the search for chocolate is fun here! So much of it is different than what they'd find in the States. And it makes great gifts to take back to their friends.
We're sure having a lot of fun together these days! So glad they get to be here with us right now.
