101 Uses for An Onion (Ok, Only 4)

Yesterday I loaded up the 500 Babies and drove over the hills (but not through any woods!) to Grandma and Grandpa's house.  We spent a good part of the afternoon exploring the backyard, where we discovered giant onions gone wild:

They were seriously 2 and 3 feet tall! Daniel invented many uses for them. First was "The Onion Necklace".
This naturally led to "The Onion Belt".
Then Daniel used the onion for more manly pursuits, such as "The Onion Pulley".
And "The Onion Whip".
Mikea decided it was more fun to munch on the onions.  She chewed one up and then went back for more. Silly girl smelled very onion-y when all was said and done!
Afterwards, all 500 Babies (plus one extra!) gathered for a Diversity Summit.
Don't ask me what they discussed.  But they certainly had fun!

Based on the seriousness in their faces I would guess either the state of the economy or health care reform :)

Go Mikea for eating the onions! Wish I could do that.
