Back Yard, Back Seat--What is the Difference?

Do you remember when you were little and how many things appeared much larger than they really were. Sometimes we even got things a little mixed up. Well, this evening after returning from a gut-busting all-you-can-eat dinner at Pizza Pie Cafe, we were playing a game of spot the car. We would say look for a yellow car and the girls would yell when they saw one. Anyways, that part of the story is not all that relevant to the comment our youngest made.

So, we had pulled our car in front of our home and we were still looking for a "Yellow" car. I let both girls out of their seats to roam our car looking out of the windows at passing cars hoping for the Yellow one to go by. Maren came to the front and Hazel announced that she was going to the "back yard". We all turned to watch her climb into the third row of the mini van and announce that she was now "in the back yard". Ah, yes, the back yard otherwise known as the third row of the mini van. It is all about perspective.
