Surgery and Garage Sales

First, I took these pictures earlier this week. I'm going to have to use them in some kind of Father's Day card.

Then, to stay in chronological order, we went to the duck pond on Monday. Sydney seemed to enjoy it. I was afraid she wanted to go jumping into the pond. She kind of got the hang of throwing the bread to the ducks instead of eating it herself. They shared the bread I guess.Sydney's surgery went well this past Thursday. We had to be there at 7am and by 7:30 when I had to leave for work she hadn't been put under yet. Brian told me later that when the nurses took her away he was so sad because she was reaching for him and calling, "Dad!". I'm kind of glad I didn't have to see that. But look how cute our little patient was:
Post surgery:When I got home from work that day, I was surprised to see her running around and being her usual cheerful self. She's been doing great.

I went down to Idaho Falls Saturday and with a friend hit some garage sales. I'm so glad I went with her because there was one garage sale right near her house that I wouldn't have known about and happened to be the best stop we hit that day. Here are just some of my favorite finds.
This purple dress is gorgeous! It's a little big, Size 4, but I couldn't pass it up.Here are the toys I got her. She loves Cars so I was excited to get this Mater for her in such good condition. Also, she can spend at least 20 minutes playing with the little pop-up toy. As I was pulling these toys away to take a picture (I didn't pull them from her as she was playing with them, I'm not mean) she's was shouting, "Mine! Mine! Mine!" I guess that "Mine-o-Saur" book from the Dolly Parton Imagination Library came just in time.

I love that I found these Sandra Boynton books in such great condition and for 25c each! Very excited!
I got Sydney a ton of bottoms for 2T and 3T but this was one of the cute shirts I got.
I really liked the colors of this outfit. I worried that it might be a little hot for Louisiana but it does get somewhat cold in the winter time so I'm sure I'll be able to use it.

Funny story: I also got an umbrella stroller for Sydney. I left it out in the car and told Brian about it. He gave me a quizzical look and asked to see it. He said, "Does it have an umbrella on it?" I explained to him that it looked like the toy one I got for Sydney just bigger. He then commented that it was a stupid name for a stroller. I agree. :)

That is a great price on the books! We went yard saleing the other weekend as well! I think that's funny. My best deal: $5 for a Baby VSmile with four games! I love yard sales.
