Toy box time

Thanks to Dad F, for helping us build a toy box!

This is a project we've been wanting to do for a long time. We've kept Lee's toys in an old cardboard box, which he climbs into and destroys within a matter of days. The box we built is sturdy and won't break, and big enough to hold all the toys. I told Cody last night that this box will be our limiting factor--if we ever get too many toys to fit in the box, it's time to get rid of some. :)

While Cody was building and Lee was taking a nap, I helped mom F just a little with canning and making dinner. We made the most delicious pork roast ever--I made an Asian-inspired spice rub and "concoction" (like a syrupy glaze), and we put the roast on mom and dad's rotisserie. WOW--it was so moist and the outside was crispy, and the flavor was just perfect with the naturally sweet pork....none of us could stop picking at it.
