We entered the Barnes & Noble just as any family would.... walking with our feet, through the door and into the awesomeness that IS the B&N. We had been anxiously anticipating this trip to 'town'. The boys hadn't been to the new B&N yet, and had heard tales of it having an escalator. That magical traveling device that transports you to the next level of retail books to purchase.
The glorious escalator.
Except, when we entered, we stopped, looked right at the escalator, and Fox announced, 'Now I remember what an escalator is, I don't like it.'
As a close knit, supportive family, we all began to laugh at him. We made him ride the escalator.
After, a few times up and down, he got more used to it.
These two didn't have a problem.
They were only too happy to encourage their brother. I think someone said, 'Don't forget to step off at the end, or you'll get sucked underneath.' Someone else recommended, 'he hold on with just his hands and swing all the way down.'
Yes, I did have my camera in the B&N! Thanks to Terri and Wendy, I am inspired to carry that thing everywhere! See? It brings me joy!
By the time, we made it back to the car, Fox was feeling back to his 'normal-not-normal' self.
I believe we can check RIDE ESCALATOR off his bucket list.
