Funny as hell!!

Ok. I wanted to post the picture that goes with this but I can't it to upload here from my camera. So here's the funniest thing that I have ever been priveleged enough to see.

Here's the setting. The whole family walks into the local Sam's Club. SR gets a phone call and leaves the store briefly. So the kids and I take our time looking at things that SR don't like to look at. You know, guy stuff! Electronics. LCD TV's. Plasma TVS! Surround Sound!! Oh God I'm getting myself all worked up just thinking about it............Oh uh.....Where was I? Oh yes. So the kids and I are perusing threw some aisles when we caome to a huge Halloween decoration. It is one of those that blows up with an electric pump, stands aboiut 12 feet high, Is quite big inside and had scarry stuff all over the place. The even have a mummy that is 6 feet tall outside. So youngest son asks me-
"dad, can I go in? PLEASE!"

"Sure go ahead."

Thanks dad."

So he goes in. As he just walks in where he can't see outside I reach in and tap his shoulder. (He was already real nervous as it was to begin with.) Next thing you know here comes youngest going balls out running out the other end AAAAAAGGGGGGGGGGGGGHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!! He ran halfway down to the other side of the store before he stopped and turned around. He looks back to see his brother and I laughing uncontrolably. I was laughing so loud people were staring at me with weird looks on theirt faces. Ecept for the ones who were lucky ehough to see. They were laughing too but not as hard as me. I was laughing so hard I could hardly stand anymore. It went on for a few minutes when SR walks up asking what was so funny.

Youngest "I went in the haunted house and someone tapped me."

SR "Really? Were you scared?"

"Yes until I realized it was dad. It was fun. I want to do it again!"

The rest of the trip SR kept saying that she wished she were able to see that. that was 8 hours ago and I'm still laughing out of control as I think about it. I can't wait to be able to tell this to someone in person.

It's the little things that make it all worth it...this'll be something that'll put a smile on your face everytime you think about it. Made me laugh picturing him tearing out of there...

You know, you hear a lot of parents complaining about how little fun they have since their kids were born.

Personally, I have a lot MORE fun since our child was born. Never laughed so much in my life.

Glad to hear of this happy family moment.
