Car Wash!

Nothing says summer fun like hopping into your swim suit on a toasty summer's day and splashing in the soapy bubbles of a car wash! 
In our case, we were washing matchbox cars... and we were washing them in Little Man's old baby bath tub!  In the beginning, Little Man seemed a little disturbed by the idea of dropping his cars into water, but soon enough he was tossing everything into that tub--just about every toy and ball he could get his hands on!

Every single car deserves some TLC.  Right about now I was hating the fact that we were doing this car wash on a cold third floor apartment balcony instead of a sunny, grassy yard!  You homeowners don't know how good you have it!
Those rows of warming matchbox cars sure make Mom happy!  Just about as soon as we took the cars out to dry, Little Man was tossing them back into the tub.  Now, I keep finding matchbox cars in the bath tub.  The other day, he tried to dip his car into a cup of milk!! The idea of getting his cars and trucks wet is quickly catching on!  
I love this look--Mom, can I get back to washing my cars?!  Thanks to my sis for this awesome idea.... I know we'll be doing this again soon!

Enjoy these last few summer days!

    P.S. He's a cutie pie!

  2. We did this last week with a popcorn bowl on the deck outside, and my daughter loved it!
