I debated making the trek to home depot (cheaper!) but decided to go more local and save myself the joy (not) of a 5pm car ride in traffic with all three tiny people. So off to Orchard Supply we went. After much prepping of the older two (no fighting! no pushing those damn mini carts! no touching/throwing/eating things!), we were set to go.
Angel faces. These two.
I finally steered my water-loving, rock-throwing boy away from his version of heaven, where he and big sis each got to pick out a plant to take home (my version of "rewards" may need a little work, but whatevs). Riley picked a cute little succulent, while jackson lunged for a... CACTUS. doh. ouch. tears.
I'll keep you posted on the weekend project. It promises to be fantastic. And take 100x longer than I think it will.
