My mom kept everything from when we were little...and I mean everything.
This meant we had a lot of boxes to go through when she moved up to Portland right after Bennett was born. It wasn't all bad though, because I won the vintage toy jackpot in my mom's garage!

Bennett absolutely loves all of the toys that I used to love, so I thought I would share a few that we have out right now...

Fisher Price record player:
 it's unfortunately missing a few of the records but he love this thing so much. 
He's our little DJ. 
(if anyone happens to come across any of these little plastic records while thrifting, 
I would love you forever if you sent it to me so we could have a complete set!)

Fisher Price musical push walker thing:
He loves to pretend that he's vacuuming with this when I vacuum. 

wooden Playskool fruit puzzle:
ok this one wasn't mine but I had one exactly like it.
I spotted it at a children's consignment store for $3 a few months back!

He also loves the vintage alphabet blocks and owl clock seen in the last picture of his nursery tour.

one thing I won't let him play with (yet) is the collection of Little People. 
They stay safe on top of the tree picture in his room:

We have a few other things that haven't been brought out yet including the barn, a-frameparking garage, and ferris wheel though we are missing quite a few of the pieces. I probably won't let him play with them all since they are super old (originally were bought for my older sister and brother in the 70's) but I can't wait to bring out the barn!

On another note, it's been so nice the last couple of days and Bennett
 and I have loved going on walks together. 
I couldn't resist taking pictures of my little man:

He loves going on walks, that's for sure!

    Yah for walks! I'm loving every minute the sun comes out!

    Gosh, he's just the cutest.

    (Plus, I bet he'll love the Little People once he gets past the swallowing age... my sister and I had a ton of them!)

    We had one of those record players, and I remember playing with the barn when I was little, too! So fun!
