day 114 - the first to go

"Let's face it. When the trash bags come out, we army guys are the first to go."

I gotta disagree with you Toy Story 3. When the trash bags come out in my house, the first things to go are the Happy Meal toys and the toys from the Kinder Surprise Eggs. The toys are small, cheap and the instructions are apparently written by a blind chimp who barely speaks English.

But...the kids love them, so I cave in every single time.

(Here's a little known fact for you. Did you know that Kinder Eggs are banned in the US? They have been since 1997. They cannot be taken across the border.)

Anyway, it was a great day today. We enjoyed beautiful weather and nice visits with family. I took a bunch of pictures. Here are some of the shots I took today:


Happy Easter!

I was going to say I've never heard of Kinder Surprise Eggs - now I know why!
Looks like a good time was had by all at your house.

Read the story of the Kinder Suprise Eggs the other day. As an American living in the UK where these things are available everywhere I found it totally unbelievable.
Wonderful images.

I hate Kinder eggs....the boys got quite a few of them yesterday from various grandparents and I have already thrown a few of them out in the well happy meal toys! LOL

I was so confused as to what Kinder Surprise Eggs are. Interesting.

I love the shot of the chocolate covered face. :)
