Otherwise known as …Hot Wheel Heaven.

We live steps away from the waterfront in near northern Canada.

Which means there is a festival pretty much every weekend in the small town we live in, surrounded by Cottage Country.

This makes weekends pretty easy around here. We don’t have to venture far for a day at the beach or go to a festival.

There is one festival each year, which boasts a Hot Wheels tent. Now, our boy, has many favourite past-times. None so much, these days, as playing with his match-box cars. He incorporates them into everything he does, there is very nearly always at least one grasped in his chubby little hands. He sleeps with them, eats with them, reads with them, bathes with them.

You get my point.

So taking him to the Hot Wheels tent? He was basically in a state of pure adoration, excitement and wonderment. The fact that Hot Wheels has some of his favourite movies (CARS and Toy Story) replicated into car glory status? Well. It was almost too much for him to bear. Almost.

Long since we spotted the tent last year, I dreamed of making a wall downstairs in our playroom, much like the one pictured above. My dreams were solidified into the decision to make the wall a reality for Wyndham when he asked if we could take it home … several times. The whole wall.

I’m gonna hook that shit up and pin the heck out of it for Christmas. Even the mister is excited about my latest DIY plan. This could very well be a first. I’ll let you know how it goes. I know Christmas is months away, but obviously I’m not going to spoil him rotten by doing it now, for no particular reason other than the fact that hes awesome, I mean, right? Oh but wait! Its his 3rd birthday in November  so maybe then …
