This post is mainly pictures of Emma and some of her fun adventures over the last few weeks (okay, months. I am that far behind in my blogging.). Emma had her first bike crash a while back. She has an indoor bike that has special wheels for riding inside. Well, wouldn't ya know, the first time we let her take it outside and ride it around the block (with Aaron, Russell and I), she crashes. And breaks her fall with her face! I love this picture of her on the bathroom counter. It totally looks like a prison mug shot. This is Emma the day after the crash. The swelling went down, and the road rash began to emerge. Bike crash with road rash at age 3. Russell is such a proud uncle! This may not look like anything to you, but it is Emma's name written on the carport with side walk chalk. She just went out one day and wrote it. I haven't helped her write, make letters, or anything (I know, I am a bad mom.)! If you look closely, you will see that her "E" has a few more lines than necessary, her "M's" kind of look like "N's" and her "A" slightly resembles an "F." BUT she did this ALL BY HERSELF! She must be some kind of genius or something-takes after her mother, no doubt! (That is to be read with total sarcasm!) Here is Emma with her picnic. One day she kept getting out all the napkins and paper plates, and I couldn't figure out why, until I saw her picnic. One day, Aaron and I were spying on Emma while she was playing out in the yard. She kept going from one of my potted plants to the rain gauge. She was filling the gauge with dirt. There, all full! (These pictures are so blurry because I took them from the kitchen window. Where I was spying on her.) Emma went wakeboarding with her daddy over Labor Day weekend. We went out with some friends on their boat, and Emma got up enough courage to get out behind the boat! The first time, (she went more than once!) she started out by hanging on to Aaron's neck. She loved it! He eventually moved her around so that he could hold her for the ride.The second time, she actually stood on the board. It was so funny because not long after she stood up, we were swamped with 3 boats and 2 jet skis, making for a pretty bumpy ride. I think she got scared a little then, but that didn't stop her from talking about getting her own wakeboard for "next time." Emma helped Aaron wash his car one day, by getting in the bucket. She likes getting herself into small places (remember the garbage bag box?). And I couldn't end this post without some pictures of the boys. Here they are, again, sleeping in the same position. I think this one is so funny because of their outfits.
I will most likely post some more pictures this week. We have been having lots of fun, and just got back from a trip to Disneyworld, so I have a lot more pictures!
