Shopping for Birthday Sheds - All I wanted for my birthday was two brand new plastic storage sheds. One was needed for the yard tools and one for the kids' outdoor toys. I figured it would be safer to store them separately, because I did not really want the children poking around hedge clippers and hatchets just to find a toy. My husband came through and got me the sheds I wanted. I made it a game for the kids to put the toys away: They would open the door and try to throw the toys in from different points in the yard. That works well as long as they remember to shut the door....   [tags: Birthdays, ] 744 words
