We got to our destination, I unloaded the stroller, paid the meter, unbuckled all three kids, coaxed Finn into the stroller, bribed Maeve to stay by the stroller and put Oren in the mei tai. We took the elevator up to the third floor and noticed that the fire alarm was going off. Yes, the fire alarm. We took about three steps and a very nice man approached us and said we shouldn't go any farther because there was smoke and he thought it smelled like an electrical fire. He was kind enough to carry the stroller down three flights of steps.
So after an hour and a half of prep time, we spent about two seconds at our destination.
It actually wasn't a huge deal because the weather was so fantastic that we walked a block to the library and the kids did some puzzles and spent a very long time in the bathroom playing with the foam soap, automatic faucet and hand dryer. We picked up ice cream on the way home and all-in-all it was a successful outing.
