Queen of the Castle

Last week, my mother-in-law stopped by with a gift for Wendy. It's a Little Tikes Castle, and it's at least 15 years old, but in excellent condition. Wendy's Auntie Em, who is now 20 (hard to believe) played on it a lot when she was a munchkin. It's been in storage for awhile, and now it's been cleaned up and put together, and Wendy loves it. Absolutely loves it.

Her favorite feature is the slide. If we ask her if she wants to go play, she asks, "Wide?" You can see in the picture above that she likes to have her toys play on the slide, too. Dracula seemed to particularly enjoy it.

That Dracula came from a yard sale last year. He cost me a quarter. Wendy hugs him and loves on him - he must be pretty on the inside.

She really enjoys all the windows in the castle, too. She likes to pause on the way to the slide & wave at us from the windows.

She is quite the queen of her castle.

The castle also has a flagpole on the tower, and we need to make a flag for it. I'm looking forward to finding some super-girly fabric and trims to make it nice and princessy. I'm sure I'll post more pictures when that's done!

What a fun castle! She definitely looks proud of herself too!
