Backyard Treasures

WARNING: This is a really random post, feel no obligation to read.

So we have lived in our house now for 4 years! I think that is the longest I have lived in any one house my whole life. We love it here. We love our neighbors and our house and living so close to the beautiful mountains. We love the small town feel but not too small :) We have little to complain about.

We do have have something...strange going on in our backyard...

Our backyard has a gate that connects right up to a
community/neighborhood park.
We like that. It is mostly a fun thing.
Somehow, the strangest items keep finding their way into our back yard...
Are they being thrown over the fence from kids/teens who are at the park?
Are our side neighbor kids "accidentally" throwing them over?
Did the wind blow these things in?
Are they walking in by themselves?

I don't really know...
But I do wonder about it.
It doesn't really bother me...I think it is kind of funny.
But I do wonder about it.

So, for example...
Here are a few things that I took pictures of a few minutes ago:

A nice orange cup

A butter knife

A Lego

A Pink Balloon

A clear plastic cup

We also had one, small, brown flip flop our there for a  while
but I can't see it anymore...Rude! I really wanted a picture of that.
How did it leave? Where did it go? I don't really know...
(no of course I don't actually just clean up these items when they appear in my back yard...
I wait for them to disappear on their own...they always do)

We have had a plethora of strange little toys,
 lots of plastic bags, news papers, balls...

But this last one that I just found yesterday really takes the cake.
It sure took me by surprise...

Can you tell what it is? Well, I don't really know for sure what it is.
A trash can with a face on it...
(It reminds me of stories I have have heard about moms who collect their little kids toys at the end of the day that the kids didn't clean up when they were told to...I am totally going to do that)

So, how did it get in our backyard?
I really would like to know.
(Maybe the little kid got tire of his mom taking his toys so he hid it in our yard?)
I need to set up a servalence camera back there.

So, dear neighbors, if any of these objects, toys or trash cans are yours, feel free to walk right in out our backyard and claim them.

Thank you for your feedback and ideas on how these objects got in our yard.

Oh my gosh- that is SOOOOOOOOOO funny! You seriously had me laughing out loud. HILARIOUS! I don't know what to say. I just think it's all so randomly funny. Lucky you!

It's totally obvious that these kitchen items come from a broken home. They were trying to make their way to your nice clean kitchen but every time they see you they hold still and pretend to be inanimate.

Just watch, in a couple days they will be all be in your dishwasher. The garbage can is the evil watch dog who was sent to round them all up. If I were you I would burn him.

Hahahaaha, that is really random, indeed.

So, I just read this post to Brett and Jack and they had a pretty good laugh. The sad thing is everything you took a picture of belongs to us. What can I say, my kids have a good throwing arm?? Sorry! I will send the boys to come and get it once your deck is finished. You forgot to mention the soccer ball that I also spy out of my window :)

Oh, that is so funny! The best part is that if you leave them there, they just disappear! Funny!
