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!

You know? Only you would find something like this and buy even if you didn't need it! I would have gladly taken it off your hands had you not been able to find anyone to take it! Hope to see you at Christmas!!
