I just love surprises!

Now that it is starting to feel like spring, the boys have been outside non stop!  They are playing everything from baseball to sidewalk chalk.  And everyday our Little Tikes basketball goal makes it outside to shoot a couple of hoops from.  Now this poor goal has seen better days. 

We have taped the bottom so the sand does not spill out, however, it still does. 

It was actually passed down from my niece and nephews to my kids so it is at least 18 years old!  It has had ALOT of playing time and surely got it's money worth.

For some time now we have contemplated buying the boys a "big" basketball goal.  So when we saw a great deal on a basketball goal, we decide to go ahead and bit the bullet.  Kevin bought it on Thursday night and hid it in his car.  Friday night we had the bright idea to assemble the goal and surprise the boys with it in the morning.  Little did we know it would take a little longer than we had planned!  At 1:30, in the morning, we finally finished it! 

After all of the St. Patrick's Day morning surprises, we told the boys we had a surprise for them outside.

This was their reaction when they saw the new goal...

Don't you just love it! 

I am sure this new goal will get lots of playing time, especially now that the weather is warming up.
