No, I am not talking about Sara. (She is much more than an 8 cow wife.) I am talking about my second love, Lola.
When Lola first entered my life she made mine and Sara's relationship into a rather awkward love triangle. Sara used to put Lola down often with her version of "Mahana you ugly!" and one time in the heat of the moment she threatened me with "It's either me or her, you decide!" but Sara is finally warming up to her and sometimes she even shares the stoke of Lola.
Here are some highlights of our relationship.
First I gave her a make-over.
The makeover isn't finished yet, just on hold until the Lola fund is replenished.
(You can see Jilli has the Lola Stoke. She calls her Lolo or Lala. It is really cute.)
Rig and I took her camping with the scouts. It is the closest I have ever been to infidelity.
We cooked dinner on her stove top.
First day of school party at sonic. (In California there are no seat-belt laws in the back-seat for cars older than 1972. So there is no limit to how many kids can ride in the back. In the Smart family we are taking back some of our personal freedoms and it feels great.)
The high ceilings and wood floors naturally lend themselves to basketball, so I installed this hoop. It was a lot of fun until Caroline air-balled a shot right out the window. Now we need a new ball.
Lola has made me the most popular guy in the ward as far as the primary goes. Everyday after church there is a party in the bus. Most of the primary kids flock to Lola and play car, house or basketball until I am ready to go. Then Lola and I drive home as many kids as want to come (usually 10-15) and their parents come and pick them up from our house.
She is a true treasure.
