It was a rollerblading extravaganza around here today! It all started when a mysterious box was delivered to our doorstep today by cute, pregnant mail lady. It was addressed to Camden and from Alaska! It was the rollerblades from Heidi Snavley!!!! She mailed them on St. Patrick's Day. We are so lucky to have so many nice Heidi's in our life. Holden received some rollerblades from another Heidi, Aunt Heidi, in December. Camden wore them a few days in a row and longed for his own. I blogged that we would find them this spring at a thrift store or garage sale since we rarely buy retail so we can afford our lifestyle. We love making wish lists, setting goals and finding things on Craigslist. We think on things awhile before we get them. Camden's eyes lit up when he saw his new rollerblades and they are perfect! I think he is still wearing them tonight. He may even wear them to bed. These will fit him for at least 4 years since they are adjustable and go up to size 5.
So, when the neighbor friends saw our boys going skating outside they went to get their rollerblades and joined in the fun. It was a very joyous day. We also scored a Sears hardtop cargo carrier on Craigslist. It will come in very handy on our long trips. Something we had on our wish list for awhile.
Love to all!
