On Mother's Day, we set out for Target to purchase a helmet for our little pea. One of our friends had just given us their hand-me-down 3 wheel Dora scooter, & Eloise needed a helmet to ride it. So...what did we come out of Target with??!!?

Yep. A new BIKE! It's Sooooo fun. Eloise loves it, but I think I might love it more. I ask her everyday if she wants to ride her bike. :) Today she turned me down for the stroller - ah well.

It's a Radio Flyer tricycle with a pink basket on the back & a bell. Hee, hee. I love the 'parent handle' & when she puts her feet on the pedals, they don't move unless she wants them to. As she gets older, it turns into a 'real' tricycle.

And we did walk out with a helmet. :) Honestly, I think these pics are the only time she's ridden her bike without her helmet. Promise. She calls it her hat & asks to wear it before she gets on her bike. Safety first! :)

Easter Dress/Mother's Day

The pictures of the Easter dress mysteriously disappeared - so last Sunday {on Mother's Day} we pretended that it was Easter again too & dressed Miss E up in a repeat performance.

Here she is getting ready. Can I just say that I LOVE this picture?:

A Mama & E shot to keep this Mama happy on Mother's Day:

In Keeping With The Theme...

In keeping with the theme of delayed holiday posts - here are some more Easter shots. This year was Eloise's first year to hunt Easter eggs {since she wasn't walking last year!}. We took her to our church's Easter egg hunt & it was SOOOO much fun. We had a story, did a craft, & then hunted eggs. It did not take long for her to figure out that something fun was hidden in those eggs. And when she discovered that that something fun was chocolate - she was sold. For the rest of the weekend {and following week} she would walk around & say 'Eeegg? Chocoate?'.

Maybe in a few months I'll share with you pictures from Erin's baby shower & pictures from Mother's Day. :)

You Decide

Are the pictures below from the Tulip fields at Easter, really LATE or REALLY early? I'll let you decide....

Yeah, yeah. They are LATE!! Oh well. I'm having issues with my computer{s} lately. I'm very sad to tell you that my laptop is no more. I'm trying to figure out how to use the iPad, & in the meantime, Picasa on my desktop isn't working so hot. {That's right - I have 3 computers. Sigh}. I uploaded pics from Erin's shower 4 days ago & they are still no where in sight. Maybe before her sweet baby is born there will be a post from her adorable shower. Until next time...
