licorice and hula hoops

Probably the most worthwhile trip I made anywhere last week
was to the licorice and hula hoop store.
A request that morning by little man to please get licorice and hula hoops.
Because don't you know that the fuel you need to power those hips comes from high octane twizzlers? Apparently it does. Especially when you're four.
I didn't really go anywhere last week,
(and calling it a milk, bread and peanut butter run wouldn't be as exciting)
so it wouldn't be hard to qualify this trip as the trip for sure.
worth every cent.

A first-time hula man is doin' fine.

never mind the hips man, what about the song in the background?

"my life would suck without you."

because let's face it, life would suck without the hips man.

Hey, Mr. M--you were absolutely fantastic doing the hula hoop. I've never been able to master that. I'm jealous!! You'll have to show me and Uncle David on Easter Sunday when we come to dinner. Lots of love coming your way.

Joy said...

Love it and the background music. What fun the two of you seem to have together.

I may just have to make a run to the licorice and hula hoops store myself! What a fun way to burn off the calories from the licorice!

Is that WalMart? I may have to go the licorice and hula hoops and sweat pants and ironing board cover and milk store this morning.

Jenny said...

Aaron, yes it would.
Shirlgirl, you just earned yourself the title of activities director. Perfect.
Joy, oh we do.
Nanci, do go. Not much that beats that combo.
STM, you know the place. I'd love to hear about your adventures with sweatpants, ironing board cover and milk. Oh! The possibilities of combinations there...

Okay, I've never seen one that little. He's great! It's always a hard thing for me to remember.

Nothing ever replaces the good ol' toys of the past!
