Sunny and good deals weekends!!

Hope everyone had a great weekend!!  We sure did!  It was nice all weekend and we got all kinds of goodies.  At the beginning of the week I got a phone call from our speech therapist saying that her friend was getting rid of old kids toys and asked if we were interested in a water/sand table.  Of course I said yes.  We went and picked it up Friday evening.  Bailey insisted on playing in it as soon as we got home so we let her get soaken wet on the back porch (it was raining too) and then come in. 

We got up Saturday and went to a bunch of yard sales.  I have never found much at yard sales before, but for some reason was just in the mood to go.  I am so weird about using other peoples things for some reason.  We found great deals all day long. 

The first one we went to we bought a toddler swing, little swimmers (unopened), 3 canning jars, 2 childrens books, an alligator raft, and water wingys all for $3.75.  I thought we would have paid more than that just for the swing.

Another one we went to was a parking lot sale and we found a wooden rocking horse for $3.  I would have never bought a rocking horse on a normal day.  But when I asked her how much it was how could you not buy it???

I have wanted a bicycle for awhile now, but just didn't want to pay a lot of money for it and then end up not riding it.  We pulled up to another one and they had a really nice mountain bike sitting there.  I asked how much they wanted for it and they said "Well we just lowered it to $15 dollars but I will give it to you for $10."  How do you pass that up????  There were a few scratches on it and the kicked stand needs fixed, but other than that it looked perfect.

After that we came home and got the baby pool out and played all afternoon.

Sunday, Jason had a baseball game.  It was his very first game of the season due to the rain we have had.  It was another really nice day.  It was nice to be outside again and let Bailey run around with a bunch of kids.  I didn't take my camera because I didn't want to leave it sitting around and chase Bailey at the same time.  I am taking back up next time to help chase her around and I will get some pictures.

Now we are sitting here on this rainy Monday!  At least the weekend was nice.

Chad is super weird about 2nd hand stuff, too. It doesn't bother me that much but I'm definitely picky about what I get. If it's crap, it's crap, but some things are great! And you can't beat cheap!
