The Hub's is at it again.....

(cell phone pic)
Remember this post?  Well the hubs is at it again!  Our good friends have motorized vehicles for their little ones and Bella just LOVES driving them and is pretty good at it.  We've wanted to get her her own but they're pretty expensive (about $250).  So this weekend when we saw our neighbor selling one at their garage sale, we thought we would check it out.  Well Vince went over there and they ended up giving it to him for $2!!  Downside, there was no battery and it hadn't been running in years.  So we decided to get a battery and check it out and if it didn't work we'd return the battery.  So we picked up a battery, which was $50 alone!  Yikes!  But then you have to get the charger which is another $30.  But still $80 is better than $250.  So the hubs worked very hard,  hooked the battery up (needed some modifications) and........... it worked!  Bella was thrilled!  So then I took the girls in for the evening and daddy worked very hard for the remainder of the night, painting, installing lights, and on/off switches.  The next morning Bella was dying to see her car and we were dying to show her!  She LOVES it!  Occasionally she has been known to get distracted making the wipers go or waving to her momma but overall she's a pretty good driver.  Little sis enjoyed the riding too but since a little encounter with a bush, she's not a real big fan right now! : )  Here are the pics:
