But before all the weekend fun begins, I’m thankful for a safe car ride and especially for my Aunt Linda who bought the kids a video player for the car yesterday. The kids watching Toy Story 3 instead of listening to me sing in the car–pure bliss for them.
I’m normally one of those people who generally thinks that more is not better and that kids DO NOT need very much to be happy, healthy kids. But I bend the rules on entertainment for the car. Man, it is awesome to have screens on the back of the head rests for movie watching. Who invented this brilliant idea? Cause I’d like to by him or her a drink.
Once we arrived at my mom and dad’s, we hung out, ate dinner, and then I left Luke with my mom and took Maddie to what I consider “adult Disneyland:” IKEA!
Ikea is honestly the greatest place in the world. I could plan out a hundred ways to decorate my house. Alas, I didn’t need anything for my house, so we mostly just walked around and bought a few gifts and some pillows and tupperware.
But Maddie and I picked our favorite rooms and pretended we lived there (and Maddie wasn’t even embarrassed).
God how I love Ikea. I wish I could live there. But for now, I’m thankful for the Ikea date Maddie and I had.
