Ikea trip for kids - fun or frightful?

Anyone else thinks its actually fun to take the kids to Ikea? I mean we were bored, wanted to get out of the house and i wanted to get some material to make some curtains for the kids new playhouse and i thought hey! Ikea! Granted if you actually wanted to get a trolley of stuff it could be difficult on your own but otherwise i think my kids think its like a trip to a playcentre or something. (Apologies for the horrific phone pics, but you get the jist!)



Swivel chairs, trying out beds, sofas, a whole room of toys and stuff to pick up and touch and roll around in. And a cheap lunch out. And yes i did remember to get the fabric!

I also picked up a couple of new books. One of which is called Beloved Homes. I can't wait to read it as it is a peek inside 9 Swedish homes and looks just gorgeous. Book report coming soon!

P.S. I just love this lamp.

a. I am so jealous, because we don't have a Ikea in Kansas (boo hoooo)
b. I take my son to barnes and Noble (book store) and let him play in the thomas the train section for an hour. Sometimes you just need something to do...I am all for it!

How funny! Lu and I took Nela and AJ to Ikea recently, it was a gong show. Fastest Ikea trip ever! Congrats on Candy's twins! Such wonderful news!! Our little ones are set to arrive next week. Can't wait to have Lu share the news with you. I love visiting your blog - you're so great!

Ikea is fun with kiddos... until you are going through the living room sections and your 2-yr-old shatters a glass against a glass coffee table top. Not that that has happened to me or anything. Last week.
