Let's visit the big happy blue box, IKEA:


I think I should have brought a towel:



Let's go home together:
Choose your own adventure at Lotus' Place.

My kids can never stay out of fountains like that...they're way too much fun.

Great shots. Love the last one, with all your boys. Very sweet.

I like your IKEA nickname more--we call it 'colorful purgtory' ;)

Someday, Denver will get an IKEA...and I will run up and down the aisles naked and laughing happily. Sigh...

Annie said...

I LOVE Ikea - that place is awesome!

Great fountain pictures - looks fun!

maggie's mind said...

Wow. Excellent shots! I love the carts how you've made the mundane look so, not sure what word I'm looking for, but just really making me want to look (how's that for articulate). The last shot is priceless.

Karen of Sillymonkeez said...

I'm jealous! The nearest Ikea to me is almost an hour away.

Love the last shot!!!

Woman with a Hatchet said...

Those are lovely shots! What a lot of carts!

I love those kinds of fountains. We'll need to visit the ones in our area when it gets warm enough. Maybe...July! ARGH!

Angela said...

How awesome are those shots?

Rebecca said...

Oh, those are nice shots! I love the fountains... but the last one melted my heart. :)

A Mom Two Boys said...

Cute shots...all the boys. That fountain looks like a blast. Dylan would have been SOAKED and we never would have been able to leave.

And Blog Steadman makes an appearance! Great shot!

laura said...

Neato! Thanks for taking all of us along for the family adventure. :)

I've got to say, I've never seen so many carts in one place!

Manic Mom said...

Wait! Are the sprinklers at IKEA!?!?!

The other day, Tukey and I were going for lunch and he said, "Can we go to IKEA for lunch!?!?"

They have great food too! LOL!

Kellan said...

You know I was just thinking about IKEA the other day. I've only been there once before. I know, I'm a freak! But, now my kids are old enough to play in the indoor playground while I shop. Mmmmmm...

imaginary binky said...

I'm shaking my fists at IKEA for not having a Colorado store. Why must I drive to Texas or Utah in order to roll in their fantastic Swedish deals (and meatballs)?

On a limb with Claudia said...

Rose loves those fountains - there's one by our house (of course it's not ON yet). She stealths up to it then barks at the water. Oh God, she's hilarious. If there are people or kids there, they end up watching her because she's so funny.

Great shots! I hope next week is particularly delicious!

My hubby was in Portland last week on business and he actually went to ikea and picked up some things for us. What a great hubby. Although I was totally jealous.
And I probably would have picked out much different things.

Marylin said...

Gorgeous pics! I love the last one - and the shots in the fountains are great! :D

Sleeping with Ward Cleaver said...

loved the pics--boys looked like they were in heaven. The endless rows of Ikea carts is, however, somehow disturbing. Something about it represents all the crapola in the world that no one actually needs but we end up buying because it's there are huge box stores just dying to unload their wares on us unsuspecting consumers...

InTheFastLane said...

I love IKEA...I wish there was one closer. Great pictures!

Judith Shakespeare said...

That last shot is a keeper, a framer, a 'whatever else that you do with fabulous pictures' picture.

Fabulous set!

Rachel said...

That last shot is spectacular.
Love the pics of the day! :-)

tommie said...

I love that last picture!! Very cool.


Can I say, I have never been to Ikea...yep, an Ikea virgin. I tried to go once, but it opened at 10....I was not waiting around an hour just to go. Maybe I should have!

Thanks for visiting my winners.

Joeprah said...

Great story you told with these pictures. Great pictures you told with this story. Hmm, does it work in reverse? Nope. Oh well, you get the gist.

Elaine A. said...

I love me some IKEA. But with gas prices how they are it totally negates the gift card I have. GEEZ!

That last picture is so cool!

Jennifer said...
