You see this tin box? It is the home of more than a dozen old matchbox cars.
These matchbox cars, to be exact.
My siblings and I played with these same cars when I was growing up. It is one of the many things that I remember vividly from our yearly visits to see my Grandparents.
The cars were actually my Dad's and Uncle's when they were young. Grandma just kept them around for future grand kids. How cool is that?
I'm going to be honest with you. I didn't think their poor little wheels would be able to roll. I mean, they are 50 something years old. But low and behold, they did just fine. And Zachariah was beyond thrilled to play with them.
There is just something completely surreal about my son playing with my dad's old cars.
And there is just something completely adorable about that picture. :)
