Zoom, Zoom

Have you ever walked into Toys R Us and saw a toy that completely rocked your socks off? (I just realized how that last statement could be taken the wrong way. I swear I am talking about children’s toys) There are some things that never go out of style. Good toys (again, strictly “G” rated) are one of them. On Friday, the boys were surprised with an Electric Race Track and Microscope/Telescope Set. SCORE! I am not sure who was more excited, me or them.

I sent the boys into the living room while I put together the race track. Once completed, I peeked out the boy’s bedroom door. As I suspected the boys were seated on the couch watching cartoons. I made my way back to the track, put my car in position, grabbed the controller and watched my car zoom around the track in a figure eight. About 2 minutes into my race, in come Journey and Justice with a perplexed look on their face. Feeling like I had been caught with my hand in the cookie jar, I stopped racing and immediately tried to explain why I was playing without them.

Neither Journey nor Justice believed that I was simply testing it out for their safety (not sure what gave me away). As Journey pulled the controller out of my hand and Justice grabbed the second, I left the room pouting. That was until I remembered the microscope!
