Planes, trains and automobiles

A few weeks ago, I flew myself out to Kansas City to be at my Dad's surprise 60th Birthday Bash that my step-mom planned. While I was staying there, we gave the man child his first ride in a cool sports car. I LOVE this car. It's my dad's and it's a 1964 (I think) replica of a Shelby Cobra. It is fast and so fun to ride in (except when your REALLY pregnant). It was still really fun and the baby LOVED it, especially when my dad revved up the engine. Check us out:

So, we decided to buy something that I swore I'd never buy for my children. A TRAMPOLINE!! And I swore up and down that those silly lookin' nets for it were even worse lookin' than the trampoline itself. Well, lo and behold, we succumbed to my children's LOVE of trampolines and bought one. It has literally been heaven itself come down for my two girls. With spring and warm weather here, there isn't a day (unless it's really cold and rainy) that they don't get on the thing. I LOVE IT and it gets in a little exercise!
