A triple adventure

Today during lunch, I headed over to DI to find cub scout shirts. (Yeah, that's what I do during my free time).

I did not find a shirt, however, what I did find was MUCH more interesting.

First, I found a darling little cradle, which I thought was perfect for the cousin that one of my kids has for Christmas. :-)

isn't that just darling? I figure I'll have ben come up with something for a crib mattress, and I'll make a sheet for it. (Crochet probably, I would stick myself if I tried to sew something).

Then I found a really dumb Pokemon Yahtzee game, with one dice missing. I looked at it, analyzed it, and decided I could make a dice, and my kids would get a kick out of it. So I got it for Christmas, and a deck of cards, "would you Rather" ... kind of a fun adult game when we need something to do.

Then I saw it ....
Yes, that is a triple stroller. In good condition, for an AWESOME price. Keep in mind, I do not have 3 kids young enough to need it, nor do I ever intend to have Triplets! But it was too good a deal to pass up. So I called one of my sisters, and asked if she was interested. In all fairness, had she said no, I would have sent a picture to facebook to see if somebody else was interested.

I learned after checking out that collapsing the thing was not as easy as it looked. It involves pulling four pins, and taking off two wheels. (Missing wheels are in the cab of the car).

Then we have the simple problem, putting it in the car. The back seat was out, so the trunk it Was! Everything in the trunk went to the back seat, and I stuck it in the trunk the best I could.

Clearly it leaves something to be desired. So I crossed the street to Ace's hardware, where I got three bungee cords.
Not so bad if I do say so myself!

Here's another view. Hopefully it will make it home alive. And then .. I think we're not switching it vehicles. We'll just take it directly up to Idaho falls tonight and leave it at the drop off point. (My mother in laws house), so it can be picked up. Because I don't think it's worth it to switch that vehicles.

It was quite the Adventure!

My babies

My babies aren't quite so little any longer. Would you believe this was 2.5 years ago?

Jacob is in scouts, and loving every minute. He got his bobcat recently and thinks tiger scouts is the coolest thing ever!!

Brandon is finding himself in the time while his brother is at school. Without an older brother, he's been able to play dolls with Megan, and watch the shows HE wants. (Which aren't Pokemon). He's growing up, and it's hard to believe he's nearly 5!

Megan is finally potty trained, and rather clingy. She loves girl stuff, pink, purses, and everything of the sort. Wow, don't know how she grew so girly.

Ben and I have new callings. He's in Webelos, and I'm the cub committee chair. (Which means I'm not as cool as the cub leaders, but I get to try to lead the leaders). Anyway, sorry for the lack of update!!
