Great Night

You are on the right blog. I just gave it a bit of a face lift. It has been bothering me for a while and I finally got up the courage to change it. I plan to change it even more after I figure out all the ins and outs of this thing. Hope you enjoy the new look.

The tickers are new as well. Mili's is done in airplanes because she is obsessed with them every since we flew home to Arkansas in May.

Below is my REAL blog....

Tonight was our night to host our small group (bible study group that meets on Thursday nights). Because we live in a small apartment it was best for us to meet at a park instead of at our place. We thought we were going to get rained out but God held off the rain until we were leaving the park. We had a picnic pavilion and enjoyed brownies, lemon bars, and drinks (non-alcoholic, of course).

We had never visited the park that we went to and didn't know what to expect as far as the playground goes. It was a great playground for small children (Mili, and the 4 year old twin boys in our group). Part of our small group were out of town (a tradition for them on the 4th of July....at the beach....wish I was there). We had a great time and I was able to let Mili play with out worrying that she would fall off of something.

As I was talking with the ladies, the mother of the twins asked me if I needed anything for Mili. She started listing off things she had that she wanted to get rid of and didn't have time for a sale. God blessed us with a tricycle for Mili like the one below.



Brian and I wanted so badly to buy one for Mili for her birthday but could not afford it. For those of you that have not been in the business for a tricycle and have no idea what they go for, this one is listed at Target for $50. On the website that I got this picture it is listed for $64. We got a steal. It is used, of course, but we don't ever have a problem with used items.

I watched the twins at the playground while the mom ran home (5 mins down the road) to get the trike and bring it back. The playground had a asphalt track around it and Mili enjoyed trying out her new toy. My favorite part is the handle (no bending for this pregnant mama). The less I bend, the happier I am.

Mili was so big tonight. She was running around with two of the older girls in our group (ages 9 and 11). They were teaching Mili how to catch lightening bugs. Mili just likes to run and say, "moan, moan" as she motions for someone (anyone) to follow her (and they usually do).

We had a great night and Mili got a new trike.

I like the new format! Change can be good. I like Mili's trike, we are shopping for one right now for Jacob's birthday too, and your right...expensive!
Have a great weekend.

Love Dawn :)

Love the tricycle and its even better that its used. They grow out of those type toys so quickly that it is best to bargain shop for that sort of item or even better to have a friend that gives you one. Hopefully it will last long enough for both your girls to enjoy it. Neat!
