Spring is finally here!

From Dan: We finally had a proper spring day today! It was windy, too, so Abby and Riley decided to make kites. The design they came up with involved string, two sticks, and a kitchen garbage bag. They worked great, so we took them to the park where there was more room.

So there was Abby and Riley, each running around Hillcrest park with beautiful billowing garbage bags, having loads of fun. Yes, those were the Peapods children--you know, from that store where they sell toys and even kites?

Well, we do have some great kites in stock right now. But sometimes there's magic in just letting your children figure something out and make it themselves. And, after a long winter, it's great to just get outside and run. Sometimes the best toys are the ones that get us out of the house on a day like today. Even if they are made from garbage bags.
