Fabulous finds!

Yesterday we went and found a few places that were on a mental list I have.  We passed a yard sale at one point and on the way back I had Titus stop since there seemed to be a lot of kid stuff.  I am so glad we took the time to stop!  Titus got this bike for James for only $5!  I’ve been looking for a bike for him all summer and have turned a few down because of price!

I can’t even tell you how excited he was!   He forced us on several walks that evening so he could

keep riding.  My boy is growing up!

I do think it’s going to end up being more of a pain than anything else because I don’t think he is going to want to ride in the bike trailer or bike seat anymore.  Which is going to greatly reduce my biking time since he will need to be pushed and guided every where. And yes I am still biking quite a bit even though I am 25 weeks prego this week.  It seems to help my back a lot and it gets us places faster than walking.  I do how ever have to get off slowly because it gets to my uterus sometimes when I stop and get off. 😉

Titus also got this red wagon at the same sale.  It was also only $5.  Gideon seems to like it a lot!


When we got home I got on craiglist to look for a bike for Emma.  Just in case anyone was wondering this area seems to be pretty into biking and there aren’t any el cheepos out there. 😉 So I moseyed over to the free stuff and there was a free sand box and sand table just up the street from us!  Boy was I excited! So I hurried Titus back to the truck to go get those!  Apparently just down the street means different things to Titus and I since he thought it was further then I let on (which it really wasn’t!).  The sand box was gone when we got there but the sand/water table was still there. So I picked that up for free!


It needed a good cleaning but it works fine.  Even the umbrella still works!  You are supposed to put sand on the left side and water on the right side but I’m not sure I’m going to do that since I think my boys will mix the two horribly and make an awful mess.  Right now it has water in it but I think I’ll get sand for both sides.

Three great toys for a combined cost of $10!  I love a good deal!!

  1. wonderful!!! how fortunate you are to find such deals! James seems much to small to ride a bike- he was just a toddler when you left 2 weeks ago, wasn’t he?!! okay, maybe 2, almost 3 or is he almost 4? i can’t keep track of all my grandchildrens ages anymore!

  2. Wow!! How fun!! Is he wearing a helmet?? Wow!

  3. Wade has a wagon like that. He LOVES it!
