Anyway Caden and I went to the dollar store yesterday and I found the cutest stick pony, for $1. Caden saw me looking at them and he wanted to see it. So I handed it to him but then I wasn't able to get it back from him. I took it back (to put it up) and he started to scream..So I caved. I figured it was his birthday week and it was only a $1. He can have it. Katie warned me the other day of this. I have a history of going to the toy department at Walmart before I start my shopping and grabbing a toy or a book or something to occupy Caden as I do my shopping. It has worked great up to this point. Usually by the end of the store he has lost interest in it and I simply put it back before we check out. It works great. But Katie said, that may not last much longer.... Well I'm hoping it was just that we didn't spend as much time in Dollar Tree as we do in Walmart and that was the problem. He still liked it when I tried to take it away. I guess we'll see next time I do it at Walmart. Maybe I should pick a cheap toy just in case. : - ) But back to my point. Caden played with the stick pony all afternoon and I captured a video of him and Lilly playing with it. Not exactly the way you typically play with a stick pony but they don't seem to mind.
Here are a couple of other pictures from this weekend and yesterday.
Caden found out that the water hose was pretty cool.
Want a drink Lilly?
