So we decided to get Kayden a bike. Yep, that's right. However... I tried her on a "big girl" bike, the ones with training wheels and all the bells and whistles... It just didn't work for her. So, I got her this mock-BigWheels type bike.. She LOVES it! Her feet can't quite make it to the pedals, but she doesn't mind. She just pushes herself around and goes "off roading" in the dirt of our backyard. I thought about getting Kaelin a bike as well, but we have this Pooh car that was Kayden's so we just took it outside and let her at it. She loved it, too. It was fun watching them experience something new.

Grandpa Roy and Grandma LeeAnn got this sandbox and all the toys for the girls' birthdays. They LOVE IT! They haven't played in it much because I've been worried that without a backyard they would get into trouble playing outside. But ya know what? It's OK if they play outside in the dirt of our backyard. They need to have fun outside and at least I know they are contained. So here's to dirty fun! Play on girls, play on.

My Dad and Grandparents live in an apartment complex that has a couple of pools. So we decided to load the girls up with some floating devices and see how they liked swimming in a pool. It was a blast! Both girls were fearless of the water. I got Kayden a suit that you insert floaties into the sides and she just walked right in to the water with Daddy when we got there. Kaelin had a large floatie that she loved and she was content just floating around by herself. It was pretty cold, so after a while Kayden decided she was done and she got out and splashed us from the steps. Kaelin, on the other hand, couldn't seem to get enough of the water. Daddy was a swimmer in high school, so he tried swimming with both girls. Kayden did pretty well going under the water, but was done when it got too cold and she got water up her nose. Kaelin loved swimming with Daddy. She just took off! She also tried her hand at jumping from the pool steps to Daddy. My Dad took pictures while my Grandma sat in the shade watching our little family have our first swim day! It was a day we'll cherish, let's for sure.
