Random 5 on Friday ~ August 2nd

The Pebble Pond

1. We spent the day yesterday looking at vehicles. We are torn. We need a new van. At this point, I can not even believe our van is still running. A full size van is very hard to find. It is a gas hog. Frankly, I am tired of driving the beast. IF we could find one we would probably just go that route but like I said we can't find one. So we have been looking at SUVs and minivans. If we go that route then we would carry Taylor's wheelchair on the back on a wheelchair carrier. I am a little nervous about doing this but I would LOVE to drive something smaller.

After some research, I have discovered that a minivan and most SUVs can not carry the load of a wheelchair on the back. It has to be a full size SUV. Ugh. If only we were millionaires. We are stuck. No idea what we are going to do.

2. We took the kids Go Cart racing. They had a blast! It was the first time they have ever done anything like that.


3. Taylor has been doing so good walking. This week she even walked OUTSIDE! She loved it.



4. I highlighted my own hair. Yes, yes I did! Guess what? It actually turned out!



5. Brian and I celebrated 17 years since our first date on Monday. We are not actually sure of the exact date. We just know it was the end of July. :) We went to get ice cream and had an ice cream fight. It was love at first scoop. Haha! On Monday, we went out and got ice cream, of course. It didn't end in an ice cream fight though. We clean up enough messes. ;)

We usually celebrate the the date we met. Sometimes we celebrate the first date. They were 5 days apart. In November we'll celebrate 20 years of marriage and in December we''ll celebrate 22 years of being together. That is awesome that Taylor is doing so well with walking!!! Go Taylor!

Gah! I posted mine last week, but then forgot to come link it up! Duh.

Go Karts look like so much fun! We haven't been in ages, not sure my daughter has even done that yet.
