Underwater Oasis

The kids love their room and I can honestly say I’m jealous. Who wouldn’t love to sleep in a “bunk-bed-sunken-ship” (as per my 7-year-old) with shark sheets and fish swimming around the walls to boot?

The sharks really sold it for them. Not that there is anything wrong with pink but we just have so much pink in the toys and dolls and dresses…it’s nice to have a few different colours around 🙂

And they had to traverse the US-Canadian border. We got lucky! Most of the time this would be welcome news, but we had nowhere to store this monster furniture while the kids room is waiting to be painted. So here it is in all of its glory. All 10 boxes of it.
