Horseback riding

Ireland, Emma's cousin, had a horseback riding birthday party! Emma was so excited. She borrowed a riding helmet, thanks Emerson. And asked me every morning if it was Ireland's birthday.The kids got to brush the ponies they were riding, River helped Emma reach higher.Emma on her pony. She rode around the arena once and that was enough. Weeks of anticipation for 10 mins of fun!She loves the icing, but never eats the cake and always gets it all over her face.Emma loves her cousin! I think this picture is so sweet!
Yeah a goodie bag!

Daddy took her picture with her flowers today and we have a dozen hilarious pictures of her posing! Love it.

Emma's 1st bike ride

She got this bike for Christmas, but she recently figured out how to peddle in the basement, so it was time to take it outside. She tipped over on the first turn and I thought she would never get on again, but she surprised me by brushing off the dirt and getting back on. Then she took the corners more slowly!Parking the bike like the big kids so we can play at the park...Contained in her stroller since she can't walk, luckily she loves balloons

Emma's favorite way to swing since she can do it by herselfAfter Georgia popped her balloon (by biting it) Emma ran around the playground pretending it was a kite. Someone should really get the kid a kite...her birthday is soon! Haha!

Georgia loves balloons

I got Georgia her first balloon at Publix today. She is used to having Emma's leftovers that have lost their helium, so when the balloon floated away she was devastated. It didn't take long for her to pull the string and get it back in her grasp! She had a blast and she squeals every time she see a balloon now!

The other back yard

Lately I have been letting Emma play in our back yard with Sanford while I feed Georgia or clean the kitchen. She knows she is supposed to stay where I can see her and she follows the rules well. Today she said "I want to go to the other back yard." What? Eventually I figured out she meant the front yard! So we are learning that leaving the house is called outside, the outside in front of the house is the front yard and the outside behind the house is the back yard. Who knew it was so complicated!

Georgia Aquarium April 09

Our second visit to the aquarium was great. Georgia came with us and she did great riding in her stroller. I don't think she saw anything. Emma loved the sea otter this time. He was swimming in circles at the top of the water. She turned around and said, "Mom, this is cool!"
Emma wanted to touch the water, but she didn't want to touch any animals. What are you doing?
Emma loved the toddler tunel

Georgia waiting patiently
Another tunel Emma loved. Especially since she could wave to mommy and Georgia.

Loving life!

Loving the turles

Another tunel to love!
The cool otter. This tank is cool. There are three areas to view: from the bottom, the side and the top.
We had a great day. On the way home Emma said her favorite part was seeing Nemo. I don't remember seeing him. Then she asked when we are going to a puppet show!

I want to go outside too

I let Emma play in the back yard while I feed Georgia and clean up the kitchen. Georgia wants to go out too, but since she can't walk she gets to stay with mom. Since the weather has been nice, I leave the door open. Georgia crawled over to the door and acted like she was going out, but she didn't want to go down the step. Instead she played peak-a-boo with Emma using the door.Hi everyone outside
Are you still there?
