Loving the Warm, Sunny Weather!

It is truly amazing how much the sun can lift my spirits! After being stuck inside with sick kids for more than a couple of weeks, the warm, sunny weather was truly a blessing! Even sick kids can go outside and play in the sun! If only the sun was here to stay.

Chris' Remote Controlled ATV
Chris has to be one of the hardest people to shop for. I NEVER know what to buy him for his birthday, Christmas, etc. He either doesn't want anything, or what he wants costs thousands of dollars (computers, big screen tv's, etc), which means he can't have it! Well, when Brayden was 5 months old, I bought Chris this remote controlled ATV for his birthday. I am pretty sure that we haven't played with it once since the day I gave it to him. I had even forgotten about it until Chris suggested we take it for a spin in the sun last week! The best part about this particular ATV is that it flips over, spins, etc. There really isn't much that the kids can do to get it stuck! Wohoo!
Even Sienna had fun driving it!

We broke out the chalk for the 2nd year in a row. I never thought I'd let the kids draw on the driveway with chalk, but they enjoy it so much, I can't resist! I was curious to see what the kids looked like last summer, so I found one of the first summer blog posts from 2008 (click to see blog post). It is hard to believe how much they change in just one year!

The Tricycle
This year Sienna's even big enough to go for a spin on Brayden's tricycle! Crazy!
The Wagon
We also took our first family wagon ride of the year...the kids love to ride to the bridge behind our house and back. Of course, just like last year, I couldn't get a picture of them both looking at the camera at the same time!
