David, Levi, and sometimes Hyrum go find garage sales almost every Saturday morning in the summer. I have a love/hate relationship with it. I love that David gets to spend this time with the 2 boys but I struggle with the stuff that they come home with.
I don't know if it is all our moves and over the years learning that the less you have, the less you have to move with you but I really don't like a lot of stuff in our house. A lot of times David comes home with things that he can fix up and sell (like wood furniture) but a lot of times the boys are coming home with things that just clutter up the place. Though I realize that what I consider "clutter" is not to them so I try to just smile and praise them on the good deals that they got.
But every once in a while David will find something that is fun for just about everyone!
The boys have wanted a large trampoline for years but the safety issue always made me nervous. And a part of me still had it when David said it didn't have a net around it but I let it go.
2 days later, Hyrum had 4 of his friends come over. We put the sprinkler under it and lots of giggles and showing off "moves" insued.
It wasn't before long before the older 2 boys couldn't handle it and were joining the younger ones!
A few days later, Levi and Brigham invited their friends over.
They were a little more rough with each other and didn't last as long as the little ones but they had fun.
