The Girls' New Toy

Well, new to them. As you can see from the previous post, the girls loved playing with the Jeep Wrangler so much I looked at amazon to see what's available, for how much, and what the reviewers said. Of course anything pink caught Etta's eyes. My mom searched craigslist and happened to find a Barbie Jeep Wrangler for $50. We drove the 35 minutes to Surprise and to our surprise it wasn't working. The guy didn't bother to test it out before putting it on craigslist or before we showed up. He said it worked 2 months prior so it must be a dead battery. He ended up giving us the Jeep and said to pick up a new bettery at Wal Mart. We stopped at the store on the way home (unfortuntely the battery was just shy of $70) and had to charge it overnight. As you can imagine, the girls whinned the entire time from going to pick it up to the following day; they could see the Jeep but couldn't drive it. Chloe was the first to drive it and she's not very good at it yet. She needs some practice. As you can see, Etta has the skills to go around obsticles!

Fun! Jade wants to know if she can have a turn driving! :) She's always wanted one of those, but our yard is so small that there wouldn't be anywhere to drive it.

Maybe on Sunday evening we can stop by for a bit - it's a busy weekend, but I really want to see you!
