Laughing when we wake up

The Hippie got our day started with a bang! You see, for a little over a year, I have wanted one of these very badly. It had turned into a quest. I have a very particular one that I want. It needs to be a back pack, with a roomy cooler and a full place setting for 4. Sure, I can order one online, but I really want to find it. I did find it. The one. EXACTLY like I had pictured in my mind. We found it in Holland, MI. The problem? It was $160. Needless to say we passed it up, but I cannot get it out of my head and I have mentioned it several times. I mentioned it yesterday as I was packing us a picnic and have to grab things like forks etc.... So, this morning the Hippie was snuggling me. My husband asked her to come snuggle with him and she said (TOTALLY unsolicited), "I can't Daddy. Because you get lots of special things, but poor Mommy only wants a special picnic backpack and she never gets it." We were laughing SO hard! Man, that girl is observant!!!

Oh dear ... have you got HER trained! "If only I had a picnic basket, my life would be perfect." :)

I think that is an excellent story. Maybe Cliff will remember it when it comes to Christmas :), or when the army gets things figured out. Maybe ebay?
