No Training Wheels!!!

Abbie has been telling us for a while now that she knows how to ride without the training wheels. She explained, " I dreamed about it, all I have to do is stay balanced and pedal." Simple enough! So Ben took off her training wheels on Saturday and we spent about ten minutes working with her. She then decided it was harder than she thought. We tried again on Sunday. It only took a few minutes and she was off all by herself! Grandpa Johnson and Aunt Alex stopped by so she was showing them her new found skills when she fell over. (her first fall, not even a scratch, just a scare) So we were done for the day. Monday we went out, but she was still nervous from the fall. I offered her a piece of candy if she rode down the driveway by herself, DONE!! She was off and running! Next was to the mailbox and back and from there it was endless running up and down the street beside her! (she still isn't sure about turning all by herself) We can't wait to go for a family bike ride!!! We are so proud of her... she was so awesome and easy to teach! GO ABBIE!!!!!

The Tree House Museum

We took a fun trip up to Kaysville UT this past week! We went to see the newest addition to my sister Corina's family. She had a sweet baby boy, Graidy! Congrats!! We had a good time playing with the cousins all week. We got to take a trip to the Tree House Museum in Ogden! The kids had a blast running around together and they got to make bear masks and get bear noses painted on thier faces! We stayed until the kids were worn out, they slept good that night! Thanks again for hosting us at your home! Love you guys!
sidenote: 2 yr olds (almost 2) will not hold still long enough to take a photo unless they dont know you are taking one.. atleast that is the case for my sweet little Izza, you will note the fantastic side shots and blury or hidden face:)
