Way Back When-esday: Saucy!

More like "saucer"-y!

Dateline: Spring 2003
Twins' Age: 18 months

Pictures like this one bring back hysterical memories of a living room literally consumed by twin-tertainment devices! The two exersaucers---loaned to us by twins born almost exactly one year prior to our twins---were the source of fun (and photo ops!) galore.

Play along with Way Back When-esday!

Love it!!! I remember those days...I wonder if my kids are old enough to start playing in Way Back Wednesday!

Annie said...

Aww, sweet kids. Remember all the stuff we need for the girls.

I remember the look on my husbands face when I came home with the jumperoo!!!
Those days are short lived. I guess those things have to be big to be noticed or we'd never remember them for the short time they inhabit our lives.

awwww... I miss those days! (esp being able to dress my kids alike so easily)
Oh boy, twin-tertainment items definitely did take up LOTS of space!

Happy Whens-day!

OMG, I loved the saucers. So loud, so big, and so incredibly useful. Never was a toy used so intensely so quickly. The window of time that they're useful is so short, but worth every minute.

Thanks for the memory!

Oooh! Your babes were still using their exersaucers at 18 months?! Awesome. I was afraid we were nearing the end of the exersaucer days. I LOVE the exersaucers. I'm pretty sure they've saved my life. :)
As always, precious!

Exersaucers are fabulous! (Especially since my baby is crawling now, this keeps him in one spot!)

Jeremi said...

I could have cut and pasted my daughter's heads on your pic -- twin-tainment, love it!!! Your photo brings back a lot of fun memories for me. The baby stages were hard but oh so fun, funny and special too : )

THanks or the smiles this morning!!

Saucers where the greatest toy ever made.
Sweet WBW photo of your little ones. Is Darren in the back & Sarah in the front?

Nancy said...

Brings back so many memories. I would have DIED without the two super saucers for my boys. All of that baby gear times two sure took up a lot of floor space though. :)

I LOVE this photo!

We're still recovering from the baby years. I desperately need to make a trip to the consignment store followed by one to Goodwill. We could actually start living in a baby equipment free home in the forseeable future!

girlytwins said...

I so remember those days, two swings, two bouncers, two exersaucers :) Brings back tons of memories!!

Steph said...

Oh I remember those days too! Ours were hand-me-downs as well. I actually miss the sounds they made when my girls jumped up and down in them! Never thought I'd say that!

Christy AKA Trippin' Mama said...

Loved our exersaucers! It was the ONLY piece of equipment I had times three. Then my boys learned to climb out of them at 9 months. YIKES!

Loved our exersaucer. It saved my sanity more than once.

Christina said...

OMG...so cute! :)

The Smiths said...

wow!! I remember saucer days at our house, too. But for me, it was just 1 saucer...and our living room was still overwhelmed.
And yes! the exersaucers made for great photo ops!

Love your way back when pictures.
