Our newest bicyclist

Those of you who know us personally know that we spend a LOT of time outside, especially in the summer. We go for walks, play in the yard, play basketball or softball, ride horse, just enjoy sitting on the porch...We like to be outside, in other words. As a family, we also enjoy going for bike rides. Alayna rides her bike, Andy and I are on ours, and one of us pulls a trailer with Lilly in it (unless we don't go far and let her ride her tricycle) This year Mikayla is old enough to go along in the trailer but she needed a helmet. We found one this weekend and were worried about how she'd like it. Well...



She loves it! She didn't want us to take it off and as soon as she saw it yesterday morning, she wanted it on. So yes, she's sitting in her high chair, eating breakfast, wearing only her diaper and her new bike helmet. *sigh* She's such a goofball!

That's so cute (and so great!) that she loves her helmet! We just took Benno out for his first official rides in the trailer this past weekend and he would love it if it weren't for the helmet...he HATES that thing.

We got Joshua his first helmet recently and as soon as it touched his head he pulled it off. I don't know how we're going to get him to wear it for rides in the trailer, but maybe he'll cooperate.

Mikayla looks adorable in her highchair wearing her helmet! I love that big smile of hers!

That is HILARIOUS!! She looks like anything in the world would make her happy. (Surely it's not that easy ...)
