This past Sunday marked our family’s third annual Superkea Sunday–when we go to Ikea while many other people watch a popular sports program on their televisions.
Honestly, this wasn’t my favorite Superkea Sunday ever. I think word has kind of gotten out, and it wasn’t as dead as in years past, for one thing. And two year olds + Ikea are kind of an exhausting combination. And we didn’t have anything terribly exciting that we needed to buy this year. And also all the tiny fake apartments were closed off for remodeling, and that’s pretty much the funnest thing about Ikea, so that was a bit of a let down:
And it would have been really fun if I could have given you all sorts of information about the new kitchen stuff, but, alas, we were about 14 hours too early:
But we got to do our traditional picture of kids on an Ikea sofa shot:
Here’s the one from two years ago:
….and here’s the one from last year:
Last year Abe wasn’t walking yet, and he wanted to crawl all over Ikea, which is when we realized that the floors at Ikea are not all that clean. So this year he walked, which was better. But he didn’t always want to walk the same way we wanted him to walk. Which was difficult.
We finally made it to the kids’ section, which kept him entertained for awhile:
I think this duvet cover is super cute:
As far as what we bought….not a whole lot. We got something for the basement which I’ll talk about soon, and we bought a few kitchen accessories, and a parking garage thing for Abe. And then we impulse bought a duvet cover for our bedroom. We took the old one off our duvet a long time ago, because I wasn’t loving it in the bedroom. So for awhile we just had the plain white duvet with a bedspread over it:
So I liked the look of this pretty well, but it’s not terribly practical since we sleep with a beagle. We needed something over that we could wash without needing to wash the whole thing.
Dave has a thing for paisley, and I thought the colors of this one would work in here, so….impulse buy!
It’s not my dream duvet cover, but I do like it, and it makes Dave happy and keeps our duvet less hound-y.
And just like that, another Superkea Sunday has come and gone. I wonder if I can convince Ari to come home from college in a few years to make sure he doesn’t miss out on any Ikea sofa portraits…..
