Shopping for Christmas Trees is an interesting experience in the city. Parking is always a challenge in the city; even more so with a large SUV. Whole Foods sells Christmas trees, but our SUV is just about as tall as their parking garage clearance. But we decided to try anyways. We barely had enough clearance (I think the tree was scraping the top of the garage as we left), but we survived.
It seems like we regularly meet nice people with their pets when we go out.
