When there is room for ONE!

The "safari" all have their birthdays in the summer. The triplets in June, Hannah in July and Elijah in August. So Noel and I decided that we are going to have one birthday party.

Noel's brother gave him a present for the "safari" early. It is a little red car that fits ONE person. Noel puts in the backyard and the next day Elijah goes outside with Noel to water trees and sees it. The next day we have the entire "safari" outside and everyone wants to be in the red car. So what does my "safari" do? Do they each take a turn and share the car? NO! They figure out a way to fit all of them in this car designed for ONE!



I had to take a picture because they were determined to ride the car at the same time. Of course Jacob is the one on top of the car, because he has NO FEAR! This is not a one time thing. If there is something to climb into they all try to fit in that space. This weekend my parents came down for the 4th of July. My mother packed her things in this plastic box with wheels. So of course the "safari" wanted to play with it.



There are not a lot of things that are made for 5 toddlers, but if you can climb into then the "safari" will try to and they are teaching Hannah to do the same. So they may share the toy, bucket, laundry basket, bathtub just not in the same way that other people share things.

I love the pictures of the children all climbing on one thing. The car outside is a trip. But I really loved the way six of my grandchildren were in that cart. I love them all and can't wait till the birthday party. Love mom and nana.
