Happy Birthday to Me!

You may have noticed (but probably not) that I have not been in the blogging world lately. Actually, I haven't been in the computer world lately. Our computer (that we got in the fall) has decided to quit. We know the problem, and apparently, this type of computer suffers from this fatal flaw-with only a 90 day warranty. Sucks, huh? So, I have had scare access to the world. We are working on this problem, but who can really afford new computers???

But onto bigger, better stuff! MY BIRTHDAY! Ted and I took Nolan to his first Cardinals baseball game. We sat right behind home plate. We had a great time and Nolan was a superstar. He actually took a morning nap today to prepare-he hasn't done that in months! Thanks for the present, buddy! We went out for dinner together, and are just enjoying the evening of beautiful weather.

We have tons of fun pictures of all of our activities lately, but until we resolve this computer issue, this post will have to suffice. Cross your fingers that we figure it out soon! Oh, and being 30 really isn't too bad!

I have become a HUGE Craigslist fan. As I was browsing today, I came upon an incredible find.

Nolan has been obsessed with trains since he turned one. We went to a train museum for his birthday, and he has loved them since. Thomas is a pretty expensive toy to love. I saw 5 engines at Target the other day for over $40. This set came with 22 engines and 10 other cars.It also has a big carrying case for the engines.
Check out the 4 buildings that came with it! A lumberyard, 2 cranes, and the depot/station thing.Poor little Nolan cried all through dinner because he couldn't wait to get back to playing with his new trains. Of course, Ted is pretty excited too!All this was only $40! Can you believe it??? And the lady was only about 5 minutes from our house. I call this a successful day!
