Trev can ride his bike with no training training wheels


We went on a very special bike ride the other day...with no training wheels.

We had a few spills...

But we got back up with no tears.

We made a few adjustments with the support of the rest of the fam.
Ryan thinks he's so cool...and he is.

Almost there....

...And there it is. Sweet Freedom.
He is now informing the neighborhood of his newly acquired "Big Boy" status.

Rock on, Trevor...Rock on...

{Disclaimer: I had no part in choosing Trevor's outfit. He is quite independent these days. I think those shorts might "accidentally" end up in the trash.}

...I'm sitting up here at the kitchen island...side by side with my hubby on our laptops. I'm listening to my playlist (and I may or may not have bought me a couple songs on I Tunes.) He's working...I'm playing. :) And eating an icecream cone. 'Cause it's summer, ya know. Ali will come up every once and a while to hand me a spoon so I can give her a taste. I'm so spoiled.

It is the candid moments like these that make me so sublimely happy. Sharing an evening thunderstorm with Daddy and then having my boys climb into my bed to play with their baby sister. They adore her. And I adore them...How did I get so blessed??

Summer Roses & Wildflowers...

Fresh flowers make me so happy. Especially when they grow right outside my kitchen window. I think I might just have to  plant a few white rose bushes out in my front planter bed. They just give my home that lovely, luxurious feeling. Oh, I had to include a picture of my wonderful new kitchen in the evening. I think it looks best in the evening. :) I get to relax, watch my favortie DIY shows, blog-serf or read a great book to this view.... How blessed am I?
