The Good, the Bad and the Ugly

The Good from today...
Touch a Truck at the Stadium. The kids had a BLAST driving the buses, firetrucks, dumptrucks, police cars, tow trucks, garbage trucks... you get the point.
The Bad from today...
We got in our first car accident in our new van. Somebody backed into us in the parking lot at Sam's Club tonight and put a dent in the back side of our van. But, nobody got hurt and the damage wasn't terrible and the guy that hit us was really nice. His little boy got in our van with our kids and they all watched Tarzan while we visited and waited for the police.

The Ugly...
I hope this won't be too ugly, but when I took Mercedes in for her regular eye check-up on her hemangioma we found out that her prescription is changing a bit and so to help with the difference between her two eyes she has to wear glasses!! I'm so sad for her and I even cried when I was trying them on her. We haven't been able to find ANYONE who takes our insurance AND carries infant glasses! Once we find some I'll put pictures. I'm sure she'll be super cute in them, but I can't stand having to wear glasses and I'm totally hoping that this is a temporary thing, but only time will tell.
