A glimpse into Mike's childhood

While we were at Mike's parents' house for their annual family reunion, Mike decided to check out his old toys stored away in one of the building in the backyard.  You know, for the baby.  Not so Mike could bring home his Hot Wheels and play with them.  :)

I loved Fisher-Price Little People when I was a kid.  Apparently Mike did, too, because he had the parking garage and the western town.  Our kid is going to have fun with these toys someday!

I finally got to see his old-school metal Tonka trucks (you know, the kind that could have poked your eye out?).  :)  I have to admit, they were pretty cool!

Chuck Norris.  Sadly, this was Matt's, and not Mike's.

But we did explore Mike's baseball card collection...including one he made himself.  Of himself.

We came home with several of Mike's stuffed animals, Hot Wheels, books, and tractors.
