pvc invention

of the best purchases one can make at lowes, our recent one is not only the most useful, but is perhaps the least expensive purchase anyone has ever made at a home improvement store. since we no longer have our own home to improve (thus living with our inlaws until such a time presents itself so that we may again, home improve) we revisited our old stomping grounds and made a purchase that has since changed the play world as we know it.

it was simple enough. my brain actually remembered it at the very moment we were driving by. miraculous, really. since my husband is well versed in the isles, we did some window shopping while clint decided on the necessary materials.

i am freakishly talented in two ways. i can run unusually fast (or at least i could at one point in my life) and i have exceptional skills of price estimation. seriously...get me on the price is right. it's scary.
i was able to demonstrate my skills with an estimation of $15 for the total purchase price. that look on clint's face?? disbelief, i tell you. disbelief.

we arrived home. i'm not sure why i didn't realize the disbelief of my own that was to come. i am, after all, married to an extremely talented carpenter/builder who proceeded to stun all of us with the intricate designs he could maneuver with only a few pvc pipes.

in fact, most mornings, the boys awake to a new creation that mr. clinto crafts them before they awake. today it was a fort. yes, a fort big enough for 2 boys and half a mom.
seriously. the coolest dad ever.

i'm really talented at making hockey sticks, golf clubs, fishing poles and swords. somehow they all end up looking exactly the same :)
by far our new favorite toy. thanks lowes. for once i left with full pockets and a full cart :)

(i got this idea from this friend who got the idea from this friend. gotta love friends. they have the best ideas :)
