Need to controll 2 LEDs with one switch

I have a project im working on that seems fairly simple yet I just cant get it.

I need to go from one led to another with a catch - the first LED has to be activated with a toggle switch. then after a delay of about 6 seconds switch over to the next LED. Code Im using is simply one of the examples modified.

const int buttonPin = 2; // the number of the pushbutton pin
const int ledPin = 13; // the number of the LED pin
const int ledPin2 = 12;
// variables will change:
int buttonState = 0; // variable for reading the pushbutton status

void setup() {
// initialize the LED pin as an output:
pinMode(ledPin, OUTPUT);
pinMode(ledPin2, OUTPUT);
// initialize the pushbutton pin as an input:
pinMode(buttonPin, INPUT);

void loop(){
// read the state of the pushbutton value:
buttonState = digitalRead(buttonPin);

// check if the pushbutton is pressed.
// if it is, the buttonState is HIGH:
if (buttonState == HIGH) {
// turn LED on:
digitalWrite(ledPin, HIGH);
else {
// turn LED off:
digitalWrite(ledPin, LOW);

read though this. Set up a timer as shown here and post that code.



does not belong in the setup function. It wastes the considerable power of your Arduino for 6.5 seconds.
