There’s nothing more fun than oversized props, so when I came across this door at Big Monster Toys, I ran to get in front of it and of course…tried to open it (duh!).  I also couldn’t resist the look on Zelda’s face, her curiosity setting in as I imagined her thinking, “what magic is behind that huge door!?” I am always looking for fun and memorable places to snap pics together and this location doesn’t disappoint.

Hanging from a giant doorknob can make you feel very Alice in Wonderland-like.  I have to admit, I got so lost in the moment thinking about my favorite childhood fairytale that Zelda and I almost fell asleep on the stairs.  I think every mom can relate that although your littles might fall asleep at inopportune times, we must saver the quiet moment and never, I mean never, wake them up.
