The Great Bicycle Ride

Forrest got his training wheels off (he is VERY excited) which means Summer and Forrest get to cruise on their bikes together (she too is VERY excited). On Saturday morning Forrest woke up at 6:30 am and begged to go outside and ride his bike.  I begged and bargained to have him stay inside to no avail.  He was just too excited. Guess who heard all the commotion and woke up? Summer. So by 6:45 am we were outside riding bikes. That's just wrong. I looked awesome in my pj's and uncombed hair cruising our neighborhood. The camera eventually came out and captured the whole thing. I'm just too tired tonight to look through all of my pictures but I did see this cute one of Forrest lookin' good on his new ride.
More to come...

Secret Hide-Out

Here's my sweet Summer. I love her so much. If I know she's sad and I can't find her this is the first place I look. She nuzzles in between the walls in her bedroom closet. It's "her secret hide-out". She was upset the morning I took this picture because Forrest was not being nice to her. I remember my secret hiding spot when I was little. We were living in California in that tiny condo. It was in my closet. I had a really large closet so half of it was also used for storage. I would use the boxes to climb my way up and then I would sit on the top shelf. I wish I had a picture of me sitting up there sulking. It would be pretty funny now. With a family of four in a tiny home you didn't have much privacy so that is where I would go. This is Summer's spot and even though she's sad there, I still think she looks pretty cute. I love you, sweet Summer.

This past weekend we met up with my sister Hope and her family. Where did we meet...? In Raleigh of all places. I told Hope to "trust me" and I am so glad she did! We went to one of the most fun places... the Marbles Kids Museum and it is hands down awesome.
To name a few there were the wood workshop (Cole's favorite), doggy park (Summer's favorite), air hockey (Forrest's favorite) and pizza place (Brooke's favorite). This added together with my kids getting to be with their cousins = heaven. I also got to be with my sister, Hope, which was my favorite part.
It was one very happy weekend.

All Smiles

Forrest has frog rain boots. He loves them but was really, really excited about getting the frog umbrella.  Well, it came and he was all smiles. He said he did NOT want to wear the boots because the rain made his feet feel "tickely". And for the record, his smile under that umbrella was just as big as the one on top.
