Saturday's Score

In case you don't know - it's hot out. And I mean H-O-T. Not really a day to gallivant outdoors. But at least one day every weekend we like to get out of the house for getting-out-of-the-house sake, so we left early and hit up a few tag sales before the temp went above 90 (mind you, it was 84 when we left the house at 9AM!).

The big score of the day is this Thomas racing track. In a word - A-W-E-S-O-M-E.
It's small, it's self-propelled (and dare I say, a little "old school") and it's Ish's new favorite.
He has spent hours today already releasing the trains and rooting for Thomas to win.
Best $5 we ever spent.
Our second score was this wooden fire house.
It opens up to become a "doll house" of sorts (the masculine kind!). Only $3. Quite a steal.
We picked up this Thomas matching game for $2. It's brand new. Matthew loves matching games lately.
We also picked up this huge exercise ball. Matthew doesn't know it's an exercise ball - he just knows it's lightweight and easy to pick up and throw. For 75 cents, we couldn't say no. He'll have fun with this once it's cool enough to play outside again.
Matt scored a deal today too - a tall wooden ladder for only $10. Apparently those things go for about $100 at Home Depot - so he couldn't pass it up.

Funny, there's never anything for mommy! ;-)

Great deals!!! And yes, I hear ya about it being hot. We're going on day 23 (or something like that) of 100+ days, and it's not stopping anytime soon. I've lost a lot of my motivation to run in the mornings b/c it's already in the mid-80s at 6am! Stay cool!!!

That Thomas race track looks awesome! We went to Splash Down in Fishkill on Friday to beat the heat - it was really nice, and there was a ton for toddlers...

We love Thomas and I love a great deal! Your comment about the air conditioners in the birdhouses made me laugh so much! :) Have a great day!
