Come along with me for a little ride, will ya?

Okay.  This photo post is ONLY gonna work if you can get into the proper mindset.

Can you possibly drop everything for a minute or two, let the real world melt away, and pretend that maybe you're like 18-months-old again?

Is that too much of a stretch?

Even if it is.  Give it a whirl.

You got nothing to lose.  Except a few minutes of your busy day.

Okay here we go:

If you need to close your eyes for few seconds and take a few deep breaths to get you focused, that's cool.  Go ahead and do it if that will help.  I'll wait.

Good?  Good.

Okay, you're in your toddler brain now.

You've been on the planet for a year and half. 

The world is fresh and new.  The images being thrown at you every single day are wondrous and thrilling.

There is much to squeal about.  

A trash truck picking up cans on your street is all you need to bring the hugest grin across your face.

And in the middle of yet another errand running trip with your mama, something crazy fun is about to happen. 

You're about to enter a car wash.

And maybe your expression looks a little bit like this:

You've never quite done this before and you're not sure exactly what to think when the big hoses turn on and start spraying the window just outside your reach.  It's loud, it startles you, but then you think, oh, this is gonna be fun.

Here we go:


What a rush! What a thrill!

Even the super duper loud dryer thingy at the end that looked like it was gonna kill you was strangely thrilling!

And once you've settled back down from all of those sights and sounds, all you're thinking is "When can we do that AGAIN mama?"

Hope you enjoyed your short yet tremendous adventure.  

Who needs Disneyland when you got car washes you can drive through?

  9. Youngest screamed bloody murder.

    One sweet memory - Oldest reached over and held his brother's hand. Oh, does a Mama's heart so good!

    So glad El Destructo loved it!!

  10. Those dang carwashes terrified my girls when they were his age.....he is adorable!

  11. Aw, kiddo. I did not EVEN have to think back. I do this every time I go through the car wash. I even stick my nose to the window and see if I can keep my eyes from blinking when the spray passes by! Yaaaaaaay!

  12. AWESOME post! I wish my kids loved the car wash. I think it is fun but they get super scared.

  13. I'm with ya! who needs disney with fun times like this! Much cheaper!

  14. ....and the car is clean, bonus! peanut usually sleeps through our carwash adventure, but some day I hope she enjoys it just as much :) have a good day!

  15. That is SO cute! If only they could be entertained for $5-8 dollars for the rest of their lives... :)

  16. Darling, to this day I love to watch my car go through the wash cycle. I'm pretty "young" that way

  17. That was tooooo fabulous.

    I especially love the look on his face afterwards. Kind of like he's thinking, "Man, did you SEE what we just did?"

    Great, great, great post.

  18. Great post! Who would have thought to photograph it? Love the excitement and expression on El Destructo's face!

    Aren't car washes awesome though, seriously we don't have to do anything and it IS like a ride at the amuzement park!!!

  19. That is too. stinkin. cute.

  20. OK, my kiddos scream like it is the end of the world at the car wash...needless to say, I am driving a dirty car;P

  21. k - I am so glad that yours loved that - One of mine HATE HATE HATES the car wash. Or at least she used to. I havent even tried it again in years.

  22. Aww, his expression is PRICELESS!

    Trust me. I don't have to be 18-months to appreciate a car wash :) It's STILL a great time!

  23. That was fun! I wish my kids enjoyed the car wash when they were that young. Instead, they were PETRIFIED! My son would get out of his car seat and hide. My daughter would scream her head off the whole time. It was NOT fun
