All This for $1!

Great Grandma Gray would be proud.  On the way home from Ian's firstest ever swim lesson today, we kept passing yard sales in our neighborhood.  No surprise- it's a beautiful day and at this time of year who knows how many more gorgeous Saturdays there will be? Every time we passed one, Ian would point out the window and say, "Find somewhere to park yours car, Mommy.  I want to get out."

We finally got home and he said, "Mommy, I want to go shopping."  So we grabbed the little red wagon and went to a couple of the yard sales in the neighborhood.  For a grand total expenditure of $1, we brought home a mint condition, hardcover copy of The Very Hungry Caterpillar, two race cars, and a plastic work bench.  What can I say, the little dude drives a hard bargain. 

(PS- The swim lesson was a don't ask/don't tell kind of experience.  I wish I had a photo for you of him squatting by the side of the pool, his face streaked with tears, yelling that he wanted to go home while all the other kids had fun in the water.  Good times.  Of course, as soon as we got dressed when the lesson was over, he announced that he wanted to go back.)
