Thank you, Target. I think.

All date nights end at Target (or wal-mart, but that one's not by choice).  Usually because Jason wants to go to Sport Chalet and after spending way too much on all things boating he let's me go next door to Target to even out the playing field.  We're all about equality.  We justify our spendings by skipping out on fro yo, because a new pair of yoga pants (used for tv watching, not yoga-ing) on clearance trump fro yo any day.  Sometimes we'll pick up a little treat for the kids and I was so excited to come across a slip-n-slide marked down to $2.50.  Okay, so maybe it was only $4.99 to begin with, but there's something exciting about $2.50 anything. The kids were thrilled about it and I wondered why I hadn't bought them one before.  And then I watched as the grass was turned into a mudpit and a small fortune of water went down the drain and THEN I remembered why.  So enjoy it while it lasts, because this is the first and last slip and slide, no matter how much those orange clearance tags are marked down to.  Oh shoot, those faces might just change my mind. Dang, they just did.

So now I don't feel too bad that our only GNO WIHTOUT KIDS while we were visiting ended at Walmart. 2.50 is a total score to get smiles like that! Who needs a nice lawn anyway?! Okay, maybe Jason. So worth it though. Just show him these pictures.
