Memorial Day Weekend!

We had a great time on Monday going over to Joanne Carroll's house for some swimming and fun in the SUN.
Here is Alex with Uncle Mike after some time in the water.
Alex enjoyed the cool water but didn't love it. He was kind of tired and it was pretty hot out.
I found this huge tube at a yard sale but they wanted something like $15.00 for it. Being as cheap as I am I said NO WAY and walked off. Later that day I happened to drive by and saw that they didn't sell it and had it out on the corner as garbage. The bargain hunter I am I stopped and put it into the van for a later day. We don't have a boat to tow it behind but I thought going to a pool was the perfect thing. It would also be great at the beach! It had about a foot of water on the inside and wouldn't flip at all!
Here is Nick with Dane who is 5. They had a great time playing together!

You would love it in my neighborhood. Once a month we have "bulk" pick up. That means anything that can not fit in your regular trash can go on the side of the road. You can find some great treasures toys, furniture, and many other goodies.

I too love a good deal and impressed with your great find. I hate it when yard salers try to rip you off, it is one step away from being donated or trashed. It puzzles me when they are offended at low ball offers. Looks like a great weekend!
