New Car!!!

Having a third kid we knew that we couldn't keep the Jeep much longer. We needed more room and a van is just so convenient. We looked a bit last year and kind of knew what we wanted but thought it best to wait and save money. At the beginning of February I woke up one morning and thought, "What are we waiting for?" Saving more than what we had for a down payment wouldn't greatly affect our payment so we started looking in earnest. We found the perfect car at a great price, in the color I wanted at the Modesto Toyota. On Thursday night we drove down and picked it up. Yay for our new Chrysler Town and Country!!
Biggest check we've ever written!

The boys were so excited when we picked them up from Grandma and Grandpa's in it.

I picked up Preston from school and as I was walking
back to my new car I just felt so happy I took this snapshot :)

A few days later we sold the Jeep to a great couple that drove all the way from Fresno to get it.
It was a bittersweet goodbye.

Preston on a 2 Wheeler!

It took us a while to really take the time to take Preston to the park and teach him how to ride his 2 wheeler. When Uncle Brad came to visit and meet Lleyton he took Preston out on the street to give him a few pointers. He took off one training wheel and left the other for a little balance. The next time we took him to the park, he was off!! We took off the other training wheel and he had no problem whatsoever. Not even any falls! Way to go Preston!!!
