A Little Palmolive and Elbow Grease

So my sister-in-law and kids came to visit and I could have taken her to all the historical places in our city, I could have dazzled her with all the natural beauty surrounding our area, I could have taken her to the university and let her wander its hallowed walkways.  I could have done all that--but then I found out that she was still an IKEA virgin.

So I altered our plans because history, natural beauty and tomes of knowledge sort of pale in the busy brightness of a massive IKEA warehouse.  And because we're just kinda crazy like that, we took ten of the kids with us.

So here's the top reason that you should always wash your new IKEA cookware very well when you get it home:

Oh, look, it's a some of those crazy Octamom kids on a field trip!
Now kids, we're going to use that photo for our Medieval Unit Study on Knights of the Round Table...maybe we could come up with a whole IKEA unit study curriculum....
Oh, and you might want to bleach those sheets and linens as well....
Good thing they have those handy carts...
$1 hot dogs, all the soft serve yogurt you can handle, a Newbie IKEA sister-in-law, it was a beautiful day, I tell you....
