Camping Out (inside)

The girls are always wanting us to make a tent for them to play in, so tonight, we headed to Wal-Mart and bought a good tent for them to play in and sleep in. They were so excited to get home and get the tent put together.

Once it was together, Leightyn and Mylea couldn't decide which toys to take in the tent first. At bedtime, they were so excited about camping out for bedtime.

I guess their excitement got the best of them. After many many times of telling them to "lay down" and "go to sleep", the girls lost their camping privileges for the night. Maybe tomorrow night they can calm down and go camping again!

Putt Putting Along

This afternoon, when Landen got home from work, we took the girls to play putt-putt. When we pulled in to the park, Leightyn got all excited and said "this is my dream, I have always wanted to come here". The girls had a great time...the first 13 or so holes. Towards the end, they were both red faced, sweaty, and ready to go. Other than being HOT, it was a great time together...just the four of us!

Ride Girls Ride

Riding On A Beautiful Day

Leightyn and Mylea LOVE to play outside. This past week, the majority of their time outside has been spent riding their bikes. Leightyn was so excited about teaching Mylea to use her pedals on her tricycle.
Today, there was a neighborhood girl out on her bike and scooter. Leightyn would just watch her ride up and down the street asking over and over "how come I can't ride on the street?". After we discussed safety rules, I let her ride a few mailboxes down on each side of our house. She was tickled to death...with big eyes, she said "you mean I can ride with the big girl on the street...oh thank you thank you momma!".

Mylea wanted to ride with Leightyn, but ended up practicing riding her scooter so that she could one day soon ride with Leightyn.

Macy came over and helped Mylea cheer on Leightyn as she passed by.

Daddy came home from work and Mylea gave him a push around the driveway.

After supper, we went back out for some more bike riding. At this time, we let Mylea ride with Leightyn from our house to Macy's house. Mylea thought she was a BIG girl getting to do this!

It was a great beautiful day for some bike riding and for meeting some new friends in the neighborhood. Leightyn has asked all evening when she will get to ride with her "new best friend" again.

Oh yeah....we talked to the girls about what to do when a car comes. Several times the girls were in such a hurry to get to the side of the road that they about tipped their bikes over.
