A couple week ago we were over at my mother-in-law's house for dinner and I casually mentioned how we went to Costco that day and saw this amazing Cars table but it was too expensive and probably too big for our little townhouse when I was quickly followed up by this conversation...
Emma (my niece) : We bought that for Mason.
Erin (my sister-in-law, her mom) : No, we didn't.
Emma : Yeah we did mom! We got it at Costco today.
Erin : No, we didn't.
Emma : Yes mom! I had to ride home with my knees up on top of the box!
Haha. Gotta love kids. I love my niece to death but she can't keep a secret to save her life these days. Although, if you are going to tell a secret, at least it's a good one! So, I've been excited about this present for weeks and finally a couple days before Christmas, we brought it home. The box was too huge to wrap and the table needed to be put together, so Seth's mom had up bring it home early to set up. For those of you who follow me on Instagram [ @lizbir ], you may have already seen a couple of these pictures, but for those of you who don't, you're in for a treat! This thing is AMAZING. Mason is one lucky boy!
After three hours (and no alcohol surprisingly!), it was built...
The thing is huge and takes up a little of room in our place, but it's so worth it! Right now Mason doesn't fully understand the concept of what he is supposed to do, so he mainly puts the cars in his mouth and wrecks the track 10 times a day, but he is having fun!
And this was on a good day lol.
Normally there are pieces all over the room!
When I zoom the cars around the track, he laughs and laughs and gets excited so I know he understands what to do, but he is just not old enough to do it. Which is also the beauty of the gift... since it is meant for ages 3+, he can grow into the gift and use it for years!
OH, I should mention... this is exciting! I'm sure you noticed my new look. I decided to give the blog a little face lift and contacted the fabulous Kathy at Nudge Media Design (see her etsy shop here) for one of her pre-made designs. I hope you like it!
Happy New Year's Eve!
