Start car to get air conditioning going. Fold up and load stroller into back of van. Walk around to other side of van and help toddler get into his seat. Strap him in.

"Did you already pee in your pants? Or do you need to pee?"
"I need to pee."
"Okay, you need to hold it for a minute okay?"
Unstrap toddler and help him out of seat. Walk around to back of van, take stroller back out. Unload baby (now screaming), load her into stroller, turn off car. Walk back into building to bathroom.

"I don't have to pee."
