Oh my word. I can't even imagine if my three got a hold of those!

(We'd probably end up in the ER.)

(But you know all about that, right?)

P.S. He loves you.. said...

Toddlers are sneaky like that!

Mrs. Querido said...

I love it! What a cute story in pictures. That picture with the wicket around her neck is adorable! The youngest ones always know how to get the attention, don't they?!

Dawn said...

And it's all funny 'til the crying starts, right?

For my daughter, it was a baseball bat when she was about the same age as your little one.

Blessings!

Kim H. said...

Hysterical! You guys crack me up - and boy are you brave to put up the "unflattering" (you look great!) pictures of yourself. :-)

Karen said...

I love it! That's totally something that would happen at our house.

marky said...

I don't think my kids have ever played croquet properly!! Funny pics and story!

Green Acres said...

LOL, we have one of those sets. I don't know what scares me more, the heavy mallets or the heavy balls mine try to throw at each other.

Melissa said...

That is funny with the toddler.

KD @ A Bit Squirrelly said...

My hubby always takes rear shots...I hate that.

A nice garage sale find, fun for the whole family! My kids only find broken junk with missing pieces. I need to go to a garage sale with you!

Rachel@just another day in paradise said...

someone in your family (perhaps the youngest?) must get a kickback from the local er. . .

Happy Mommy said...

I love a good garage sale find! I have missed your blog, I have been under alot of stress lately and haven't had time to read or write myself.

everyday mom said...

I love a good find and you guys look like you are having too much fun and yes my hubby would be doing the same as yours with the camera LOL

Ashley @ mrs007.net said...

This is so funny! ya'll look like you are having so much fun! I guess that is what happens when the tv is off! :) I love moments like that....the stuff of life

Kelly said...

She is so cute with that mallet, how can you resist a little pounding form her? :-)

Love the husband shots, which just proves my husband's theory that all men stop maturing at 12. We have many of those same pictures, Boys! They make life fun, though, hm?

Crystal said...

I love the new look of the blog! It is so girly and fun and cute. I do wish that the words that are linked showed up before you ran the mouse over them. I know some designs don't do that however. Anyway, keep up the good work. I'm enjoying your new look.

Karen said...

that was a well spent $3.00. Look how much fun and joy it brought to your family.

The Fritz Facts said...

That is hilarious! We have a find like that, a jump hoop (like a jump rope only more a hulahoop). The kids loved it until they figured out how to torment each other.

Liz said...

What adorable pictures!

LifeAtTheCircus said...

Wahoo for great garage sale finds! And who doesn't like a nice butt shot now and then?

Grace said...

Ditto on what LifeattheCircus said! lol How rewarding for your son, who discovered the set, to bring something home which his whole family could enjoy. Great photos.

gracie said...

Sweet tea...how sweet!

RebekahC said...

What fun! I haven't seen crochet in years!!!

imadramamama said...

We love croquet, too! Although you are much braver than I. All unflattering shots of me have long since been deleted...

Shana said...

Cute photo story! :o)

Petula said...

:) I love that story. How cute.

BTW: Thanks for coming by and entering my contest.

misty said...

those would be dangerous at my house but it does look like fun. i like how you wrote on your pictures - very creative!

Muthering Heights said...

LOL, I love the photo story!

Tammy said...

That brings back such wonderful childhood memories! Thank you!

Terry said...

I always thought my husband was goofy for taking pics of me from behind - but seeing your pics & reading the other comments, I see that he is not the only one.

The Apron Queen said...

Who knew you could have so much fun for $3!! And no trip for THAT family to the local ER either!

Valarie said...

One time I almost knocked out my best friend with a croquet mallet. It was and accident I promise. :)
