I have yet to introduce you all to the new baby in our family--well, Tom's new baby! We are now the proud owners of a Harley Davidson Deuce motorcycle. Pretty, isn't it? Don't tell Tom I said that! Here are a few pics of recent days with the bike.

I haven't had a lot of ride time with Tom, due to the fact that a family of four can't exactly 'cruise'. (Buy a side car Daddy!) But yesterday our fantastic neighbors watched the girls while Tom took me on an expedition. It was a lot of fun! Can't wait to have some time to ride with him again.


When did my babies get so big? It truly is amazing how fast time can go by! It has almost been a week since Camryn's crib came down and she moved to her 'big girl' toddler bed! It was bittersweet to see the crib go into storage in our garage--knowing that we don't have a baby anymore and also for the containment factor! She has done decently well about staying in her bed. The first 2 nights were a little hard because of the newness to her and novelty of her new found freedom. If we can just get her to stay still for a couple of minutes, she crashes out without any problems!

We also decided that since Cams was getting a new bed that it was time to make a change for Zoey as well. She was sleeping on my old childhood bed, an antique wrought iron ensamble. Once she moved from the toddler bed we never put the head and foot boards on this bed bed because it makes it pretty high. And Zoey is our wild sleeper... So we decided to make her big girl bed into a true BIG bed. We painted it the purple color that she picked out and she is thrilled with it.

It was a fantastically gorgeous Hartland day on Sunday and we enjoyed an adventure at White Sands National Monument. The girls had never been before (Seems like we don't take enough time to go do things that are in our neck of the woods!) and the two of them thought this giant sandbox was better than candy!
The sand was a little cool on our bare feet when we were climbing our way to the tops of the dunes, but we didn't let that get in our way. We brought our snow sled along for the ride and did a little sand sledding as well. Zoey even decided that she wanted to be buried and loved it! All of us came away with enough white sand in our clothes, hair and ears to refill the back yard sand box!

I just love this picture of Zoey trekking up this dune with only her little footprints marking her way.
