Monday night musings

Today was one of those days; when even the ordinary seemed to stand out, along with the not-so-ordinary.

Observation #1. Purchasing a really cool outside toy for the kids somehow does not receive near as much attention as the 'really cool boxes that it came in.' I'm thinking I could round up some large boxes and wrap them up for Christmas. I'd save money, participate in recycling, and have very happy kids!
Exhibit A: Notice the basketball/soccer/football/baseball/hockey combo playset off to the side, hmmmmm. . . .

Observation #2. Trying to disguise the smell of a really bad dirty diaper by lighting Yankee Candle's 'Cafe au Lait' does not really work. In fact, it results in everyone that goes upstairs saying, "Ewww, whats that weird smell?" haha

Observation #3. I certainly would have never imagined that Brianna would suddenly decide that tonight is the night that the training wheels must come off! I must have been a sight, I was videoing the grand event and taking photos at the same time. Earlier this afternoon Tyler also figured out how to pedal his little tricycle, something tells me that our evening walks have just gotten a lot more exciting!
Exhibit B: A very intent and excited little girl!

You are funny Lori! I enjoyed the pics, and understand your frustration when they pick something to play with that you could have gotten out of the dumpster!
