But enough of that .. Let me tell you how it worked in our house...
We got them in and I was dying to check them out... Well, we gave Broxton one of them and that was all he was going to get ... In the beginning. Yeah, that did not last... They were just so cute that we had to get them all out to play! I wanted to keep them and put them on a shelf in his room for decoration, but daddy quickly vetoed that... and after seeing Broxton having so much fun... We got the rest of them out and let him have at it. (Shhh, I still have 2 put up for keepsakes and yes, I know we will have to order more!)
He calls them "the men." If he can not find them, he asks me where the men are and then we go looking. We had to take "the men" to my parents house to show them off...
He played and played... and then had to hide them! Luckily, I knew where they were, because when we were leaving, I had to go and get them.. Talk about a big upset if we would have left them!!!
He plays with them together and individually and so far, it has stood up to the test of all he has put them through!
I love how they have such a wide variety of teams and sports!!! They are also adding more!
I told Marc that this is a great thing that we will have to get for Christmas this year!!! Talk about a great gift!!!
Oh... Fathers Day isn't to far off!!! Why not go ahead and start planning now?! You know it really is never to early to start!

This might be a big rambling post, but I do hope that it brings attention to Albany, Georgia.
You probably know I am from South Georgia, born and raised. I moved to Atlanta to go to college and now call up here home. That doesn't mean I am not proud of where I am from and this post will hopefully explain that pride to you.
Let me tell you this, the "bad part" of Albany.
Albany is not the best city.
It was even reported to be one of the poorest cities in the nation a few years ago.
I can't lie, many people that live in Albany can't wait to get out and say they will never return.
Some leave and some never look back, some leave, only to return and others will never leave.
I go back to visit family.
There are things to do, so it isn't "that bad" as people make it out to be.
Cheehaw Park, Flint River Aquarium, WWE and the Harlem Globetrotters have even came before,
They have filmed movies down there like Fire Proof and Courageous and even Odd Li…
