Riding bikes! Emily took off on a 2 wheeler this year - took her 2 days to learn!! I was very impressed!! Definitely think that riding the Strider Running Bike for the past 2 years has helped her a LOT with balance, etc. though!
Jenna, of course, was thrilled to finally be able to be the "boss" of the Strider Running Bike! She's already busy balancing and just loves driving her 'new' bike!
Tate, of course, is whipping around on his bike too - and loving every minute of it. Kira enjoys walking and playing in the puddles. ;)
Our first birthday of 2014 - Kira's! She's 2 now...and as busy as a bee some days! Here are her party 'guests'. :)
The YUMMY watermelon cake! Made out of watermelon, homemade whip cream and raspberries - mostly decorated by big sister Emily! Honestly, this was one of the best cakes we've ever tasted...and it was so easy to prepare as well - no baking required! ;)
Blowing out the candles!
Jenna won a coloring contest at the local grocery store - and she's the proud new owner of a big stuffed bunny!!
Our little trouble maker. :) And no, I'm not kidding...somehow she manages to cause a fair share of trouble around here - even with 3 other little pairs of eyes to help me keep watch over her! For example, the other day I was out of the room for about 1 minute. In that one minute she managed to throw the following things into our fish tank: Jenna's favorite stuffed elephant, two cloths that I use for wiping faces at the table, a bottle of stuff we use for the water in our fish tank, and a Lego lifeboat of Tate's! She keeps us on our toes some days. :)
Last but not least, Tate's learning the game of checkers...and getting better all the time. He beat me the other day...(with a little help :) ), but it won't take long until he'll be winning on his own!
