Surrey with the Fringe on Top




Here's a little bit of information many of you may not know about the Mark family....we own a surrey. Yes, it's true! On Christmas morning we came sprinting down the stairs to find the surrey in our living room. I remember being totally excited, but also a little confused as to what exactly it was. We took it out, snow and all, and blared Christmas music on the cassette player! Anyways, the surrey has been basically gathering dust in the shed, because it had some broken parts. Just recently my dad decided to get it fixed. Do all you think it was maybe because he wanted to take his first grandchild for a ride in it?


So here is Lily's first ride in the surrey. We rode over to the park and went on the swings. On the way home Lily FELL ASLEEP!!!! WHAT?!?!?! Not my child! But yes, it's actually true. I have the picture to prove it. We hope to get Tyler on there soon and go through the drive-thru in it! ha!
Other updates...Maureen's doctor's appointment was postponed until September 5th. But please still keep those prayers coming. Also, Tyler FINALLY got his truck back today which was towed to the shop on July 8th!!! He's excited to be driving it again and I'm excited all the mulch in my driveway will be hauled away in the truck.
