What you see: The kids playing in Grandma and Grandpa's nice car
just after they figured out they could open the sunroof.
Climbing in and out, pretending they're driving to California to visit Disneyland,
acting like they were on important errands,
and definitely in charge of that car...
Easy and cheap fun that lasts for more than an hour
and creating a great memory of an early spring day at Grandma and Grandpa's!
What you don't see: My mom, Jon, and I slaving away in our van just a few feet to the right...
vacuuming, scrubbing crayon off the inside panels, and steam cleaning away.
Also cheap, though not so easy or fun....
and not necessarily memory-creating.
BUT... along with this sweet picture, my kids had fun,
and I now have a clean, fresh, sparkly soccer-mom van,
which definitely makes this mom happy ! :)
Plus, it's the first day of spring! Woo hoo!
