Yeah Yeah! Woo hoo--here we go!

I have failed to blog about an essential part in Gavin's life and the whole families as well. His scooter. Santa delivered one for Gavin at Christmas. Gavin's good friends both had one and recommended this particular brand. I wasn't sure how he would take to it. He didn't seem particularly interested in his friend's scooter. I worried that he would be a bit scared of it since he is a very cautious boy.

I was so wrong! He took to the scooter right away and had no fears. He was surprisingly really coordinated and was not scared at all. He would even crouch down so that he could go faster.

It is now his primary form of transportation. He rarely rides in the stroller anymore. We walk everywhere and he rides his scooter along side us. Well, he usually is ahead of us and that has been a bit of a struggle to get him to stay with us.

Now when he gets on it he yells, Yeah, Yeah, Woo-hoo! Her we go!

We love it!

Here is a picture of him and Lucas in action! They have a great time riding together!

Yay that he loves it so much! How old was he at his birthday? I'm hopeful Evelyn will also take to a scooter/bike/etc once she gets too big for 100% stroller. I walk fast and don't want to have to crawl along doing errands at 3-year-old pace :)

Hey, Gavin! Look at you go! I'm so excited to see you ride your scooter when I come in 2+ weeks!

Love you! Grandma

So now I want to ask the what-kind-did-you-get question because we just bought one for Sam--a two wheeled one--and I'm wondering if it was the best idea . . . . I love thinking about Gavin cheering and riding. So funny.

How cute! Your pictures are so Big City. I keep forgetting that it's for real and you're really there... wow. Isn't it funny the things you anticipate about your kids sometimes, and they totally surprise you? I love it.

Emily, the boys are getting so big and they are so cute! I thought I would let you know that I made my blog private and want to send you an invite, but I don't have your email address. Will you email it to me at or just facebook message it to me?
We miss you guys! Some people from my elementary school are planning a reunion in July and we're really hoping to be able to come up for it. It would be so good to see you all again!
