Bathtub Roundup

I recently did a major purge on our bath toys. I got rid of a lot of the ones that were baby toys and I got rid of nearly every single squirter toy since I found mold in one of them (GROSS). The two I did keep, I cleaned profusely and dried and then sealed the squirty hole with super glue.

Roundup: SciFi Games

This turned out to be a much longer post than I anticipated, but I found a ton of games (almost 50!) that I now need to add to my wishlist!
