Blake's pyramid

Blake saw this in a Toys R Us paper and wanted it.....BADLY. I told him he would have to buy it with his money because there was no way I was gonna spend $85 for a toy (and that was the sale price). Now, you have to realize, Blake LOVES Egypt. He loves pyramids, mummies, King Tut, archeology, and absolutely anything to do with Egypt.
Well, he became quite the entrepreneur. He earned quite a bit of money by raking leaves. He actually would go door to door and rake the neighbor's leaves to earn money. Regardless, by the time he had enough money, the pyramid was out of stock EVERYWHERE. Apparently, it's a must have item this year for Christmas. We searched online and in stores and everywhere. Finally, Eric found one for FULL price which I'm not even going to tell you all how much that was. We didn't tell Blake that Eric picked one up because well, we wanted it to be a surprise. And man, was it! Check out his excitement!

NOTE: The pyramid went on sale the next week, so I got a price adjustment for the $85. Yea!
