Knock, Knock...

In honor of April Fools Day, I introduced the kids to the much loved, time-honored tradition of Ding Dong Ditch. I don’t remember doing anything for April Fools day growing up, but thought it would be a fun little activity...and mature...and responsible.

We chose two of our friends that live close by. We drove to the front door and all hopped out (except Coco, she watched from the Britax).

I snapped a quick picture.

When everyone was securely buckled back into their car seats, I rang the doorbell and we hauled ass out of the quiet residential neighborhoods.

We wanted to be nice pranksters, so we left Ding Dongs and an anonymous note.

Vincent laughed the whole trip- he thought this was the greatest thing ever. It was all very juvenile. And awesome.

I also bought two ridiculously large fake insects (a spider and a scorpion) at the Target dollar spot. I am going to hide them in the garden and see what the boys do when I ask them to water the veggies after dinner tonight. Is this mean?

If you live at one of the houses pictured above and you were not home this afternoon, go check your front door. There is a box of melted chocolate snack cakes waiting for you.

This year... Ding Dongs, next year...toilet paper.

Happy April Fools Day!



  1. YAY!!! We LOVED our little treat! I am playing a HUGE prank on my kids and NOT letting them eat the Ding Dongs until we are in Mammoth...2 days from now! BWAHAHAHAHA!!!

  2. Audrey you are cruel! A better joke would be to bring them back to our house so I can eat them!

  3. LOL! Jacob was B-E-G-G-I-N' me, "Please...I just want to see what they taste like!!!" They will taste SO much better in Mammoth...I can just TASTE the Ding Dongs now...*LITERALLY*! ;)

  4. A- I hope you don't have any Zhu Zhu pet incidences in the car this year!!!
