The coveted present this year is a new bike, now she's a leggy little nine year old so we're no longer talking about popping into Target and picking up a Huffy, no siree!!! We're now into the realms of trekking around the proper bicycle shops and measuring, fitting, blah blah blah. And the price tag... let's just say this one better last until she's nineteen!!!! Daddy has to make the trip back to the bike shop sans family today so that he can bring it back in the truck with the seats folded down. Speaking of trucks....Mama got a new toy too. My little Compass although I loved it to death was just not cutting it with the kids, friends and bookbags on the school run. So, I took myself off to my friendly neighborhood dealer (yes people go to someone you know, you won't regret it) and the lovely Tommy found me a Jeep Commander... everything a mother of nine and six year olds needs. It's not brand new..... won't do that again.... but it's just what I needed.
So, all in all a fun weekend for all. Happy Birthday little Syd, I love you more than you can possibly know!!!!!
