Mr. T is home for the long 4th of July weekend! But it's felt like Christmas, since he walked in the door with a Santa-sized sack of Hasbro toys (he gets a pretty hefty discount at the Hasbro Store). This time he came bearing Yoda's light sabre, which is the perfect size for Seamus.
Another epic Yoda/Skywalker battle soon ensued:
Once Seamus finished going through all the new toys (favorites being Littlest PetShop and preschool-sized Star Wars action figures), UPS buzzed our apartment and three more packages arrived.
Seamus and I received the bubble umbrella and new rainboots I ordered from Target (I've gone through two pairs in less than a year up here). Seamus insisted on wearing his boots to the store later.
T's anniversary gift from me also arrived. I ordered him a beautiful, handmade wooden tool box from Gerstner:
Since the fifth year anniversary gift is wood or turquoise, T got me a hand-carved love spoon from Wales, a pearl and turquoise necklace (which ended up being A LOT bigger than it looked online) and a gold Owl locket.
Later at the store, Seamus surprised us by singing Little Bo Peep, and he's been reciting ever since:
Today, the pool and then more grocery shopping.
Happy 4th, everyone!
