Our Day at Costco

Yesterday, Zach and I decided to bite the bullet and get some new tires for our car. We have had the same ones for about 3 years, and we have put some serious mileage on them. I'm talking about driving from Utah to Florida and back, a couple of trips to California, and of course our day to day driving. Our poor tires were used and abused, but they served us well. We decided to get our new tires at the ever so trusty, local Costco. Of course they wouldn't let us make an appointment, so we had to wait while they put the new tires on...which somehow took two hours. That being said, we wasted time venturing through the store. Talk about one heck of a family outing!
First, we picked out our fancy new tires. They actually have tread, you guys! No more ice skating around town for us. Yipee!

Eloise and I enjoyed being pushed around the store by strong old Mr. Miller...poor guy, I make him do so many strange things. That's why he loves me, right? 

We wandered up and down every single isle, and decided that we could spend some serious dough there on things we really don't need. Who doesn't love a store that has just about everything? 

Eloise munched on her fingers to help pass the time...her new favorite hobby.

We just had to grab some lunch while we were there. A slice of pizza, a hot dog, a fountain drink and frozen yogurt all for under $5.00...yes please.

I resorted to taking silly pictures of myself to help with the boredom. I didn't know that pulling revolting faces was such a talent of mine. You learn something new everyday. Oh yeah, I took some pictures of our shoes, and Mr. Miller too...like I said, we were boooored.

Why is this store so great?
