United Way

Our local United Way was having a September 11th fundraising event. They support our local foster care association so we decided to go.

The kids had fun and plenty of exercise. It is amazing how much work is involved in playing with all those inflatable slides and bouncers.

Larissa spotted the climbing wall and wanted to do it. For some reason Anthony did not want to try it.

Why does she seem so big to me?

She did really well (actually better then we expected). She was not happy because she didn't make it all the way, we were delighted that she even tried.

I did get up early this morning and hit up some garage sales. Naturally I did not find the high chair that I wanted but I did find plenty of other things to buy.....mostly baby stuff.
I did however, find this attachment for a chair. It had all the straps and we have plenty of extra chairs sitting around so I bought it. I think it will solve my high chair problem......and it only cost $1. Works for me.
Last night I drove to a town about 45 minutes away to buy a Craigslist item. I had been looking for Larissa a specific birthday gift item and couldn't find it locally. I finally had to resort to a used item, the one I bought looks brand new! Another score. She turns 5 on Friday. I think this year I will make her a Barbie cake. So, I need to go buy a Barbie this week and the cake mix.
Well, the baby is up so I am off to enjoy the rest of my day.


  1. I cannot do the climbing walls! Too much weight for my little muscles!
