Car Collection

I would love to be able to say they are real cars but they are, in fact, Matchbox cars. My Mom kept my collection of Matchbox cars from when I was a kid and when we returned from Korea, my Dad gave them to EJ. It may sound silly but when we were playing with my old Matchbox cars the other day, I actually felt like a kid again...even just for a few minutes. I was holding my favorite car thinking, the last time I held this car, I was so innocent and my hands were soft and smooth and didn't tell the story of my life.
Here are some pics of EJ's new collection. Every time we go to store, he always wants to pick up a new car to add to his collection. He loves jets, helicopters, and heavy equipment (bulldozers, excavators,...etc). The pic below shows off his car carriers.

Have a great weekend everyone!

Well, your old collection has been kept well.

Sometimes, I feel that way too, being a child for a few minutes and play with barbie dolls!

Enjoy your weekend and I am glad your internet connection is back!

This was so much fun to look at and brought back some great memories of when my sons played with their Match Box Cars. Yes, I do have them all stored away in the attic for them to pass on someday to their children!

That is a very nice Match Box collection. Some of the older versions are very hard to find and cost a lot.
