Last Sunday Pat and my Dad hit the golf course, so my Mom, the kids, and I went to downtown Bethlehem to hit a few shops and to walk around. We all had fun and grandma treated all the kids to something special at the Moravian Bookstore. All three of them love to go in there.
Once we got home, we went outside on the deck. Mom and I cracked open a much needed bottle of wine and we watched the kids play while we were waiting for the men to get back home.
The girls were running around and dancing. Both Sarah and Reagan are really into music, so as soon as we turned on the music, they were totally giddy.
Nick grabbed his skateboard and was doing little “tricks”……and the minute the girls saw him, they made a mad dash for his board.
Grandma tried to assist so they could attempt to all “ride” it at the same time……
Eventually, all three got on the skateboard, but it was a tight squeeze.
Nick suggested that he take each of the girls for a ride, one at a time.
Since Reagan is the youngest, she got to go first.
Sarah was not so patiently waiting, while her sister was feeling the wind in her hair…..and sucking those two faithful fingers:)
Before long, Sarah got her turn….. and now Reagan was crying to get back on.
Eventually, Nick left the girls to their own devices and moved onto something else.
It really makes me smile when I watch the girls try to keep up with Nick…..especially when it comes to Sarah!
You know that saying, “Anything boys can do, girls can do better”?
Well, Sarah has never heard it, but when I look at her face, I imagine that is the very thought that is running through her mind.
Don’t let her dainty build fool you…… underneath that pretty little exterior, is a tough and competitive tomboy waiting to emerge.
