As The Husband was unbuckling The Baby from his carseat, I overheard him ask, "Are you ready to go to Disneyland, Big Man? And I couldn't help but laugh out loud for the following two reasons:
1. Home Depot really is the grown man's Disneyland. Afterall, there are rides to ride on (tractors, ladders, those flatbed carts for large ticket items), things to play with (tools, tools and more tools) as well as snacks to munch on (hello, hot dog stand) all without the hassle of waiting in ridiculous lines. Oh and did I mention there's no park fee required to visit? If I were to ask The Husband right now, he'd probably say that Home Depot is even better than Disneyland.
2. How freaking funny would it be if we raised Carter to think that the place with the orange letters really IS Disneyland? He'd be starting off kindergarten telling all the kids, "I go to Disneyland EVERY weekend!" That alone just cracks me up and makes me actually contemplate misleading the poor little guy. Okay, fine. We wouldn't really do that to him, but you have to admit, it's pretty darn hilarious.
Oh, and for those of you who are wondering whether or not we found a new dining set, we did! And a new shovel, some patch seed, a little weed killer, a new filter for... something, not to mention a ceiling fan for The Baby's room and some brand spankin' new shelves. Maybe I'll even get around to posting a "nursery reveal!" You know, before his 1st birthday. Don't get your hopes up.
And just for kicks, here's a picture of our brand new dining set and the pretty little outdoor rug I found to compliment it. Pictures are courtesy of Home Depot.
