Their main gifts were balance bikes. Garrett loved it. Addie liked to look at it but wasn't quite sure about getting on it. None of us thought about helmets so we didn't let them play for long. (Still need to get helmets.) Garrett slowly rides his up and down the hall but we haven't gone outside again with them yet.
Paul and I got a deep freeze. Just what we wanted!
After gifts, the in laws did a little activity for the kids. A live version of the book 'The Z was Zapped.' The kids LOVE this book. I can't find it in stores and I haven't ordered it online yet. And my MIL has had her copy for 20+ years. Garrett is always telling me what happens to each letter. "The R rolled off stage." "The M melted." "The I was Iced." And so on. Anyway, my creative in laws and sister in law made the stage (three stages actually so we could run from place to place and they'd each have time to set up their next letter), made all the letters, and acted out each letter. It was pretty amazing.
And for the last activity of the night. Poppy got a mento soda launcher kit. And it true redneck fashion, my FIL pulled out a couple of 2-liters to see if it worked. And it did.
