The warm weather has FINALLY arrived.
Commence the yard sales.
We found a WHOLE BLOCK of yard sales on Saturday. I love when neighbors organize for my convenience. We bought some super cool books from one house for $5.
And we bought a SWIMMING POOL from another house for $5.
The baby loved it. The Teenager is the best sister ever btw.
On Sunday, we found a super cute festival hiding in the woods behind our house. It was not quite as Wes Anderson as it sounds. Or maybe it was. There was a bit of a language barrier, but we learned that Children’s Day is celebrated on June 1st, somewhere. Someone told us it was Korea, but Google disagrees, so maybe we misunderstood. The festival was a fundraiser to be ‘children helping children’ and last year they raised enough to purchase six wheelchairs for a hospital overseas. (I know, I know, I sound like such a White Lady. The signs were not in english so I’m just not sure about the details.)
We had a blast. We bought $10 in tickets and Babystar played in the ball pit a few times, bounced in the castle with her sister, and chose three used board books from the ‘bookstore’. Mostly she loved cruising around in her pink cadillac and watching the other kids. We even got a turn on the baby swings. During one round of ball pit fun, there was another baby girl playing beside her. They kept mimicking each other. The baby girl ate a ball, so Babystar would eat a ball. Babystar threw a ball out onto the ground, so the baby girl threw a ball onto the ground. The baby girl stood up on the edge, so Babystar stood up on the edge. It was sososo cute. The baby girl’s parents and I laughed together and could communicate just enough to know that both babies were eleven months old. The babies were able to communicate just fine, though, via their Baby Telepathy. Little geniuses.
