Goin’ on vacation

After dinner Sunday night, while Dad was entertaining the kids in his room, and I was cleaning up the dinner dishes, Jim headed down to the family/play room to check on the status of the Pro Bowl game.
Breathless laughter floated back up the stairs, and I thought, “hmm, maybe new commercials are starting already.”  And then I hear, “Babe, you might want to come look at this….”
Uh oh.
The first thing  noticed was that my meticulously plotted train track layout had been disassembled, and only a few lone pieces remained on the play mat.

Then I noticed that all the toy drawers were out of their shelving.

And then Jim directed my attention to the bookshelf.

And when I finally put all the pieces together enough to ask, “so, where are the toys?!” Jim just pointed and laughed.

When questioned, Seth merely explained that he’d packed the car, “’cause we’re goin’ on vacation.”
Alrighty, then.

I had to laugh at boys do the same (rather often). However, they say they are going camping. That car tent is awesome!

Haha! Oh, sweet Seth. I don't even wanna know how long it took to clean up... Or are you just going to let him slowly "unpack" as he goes... Mercy.

So funny! When my oldest son, (now 18!!) was little, I ran a home day care. One of the favorite activities, (led by my eldest) was to "make a big pile" of all the toys. He would say, "Let's make a big pile!!" And they would all join in.

So funny. Seems like just yesterday, sigh. This week, we went to a college visit. =)
