The Little Red Chair That Could Take II

Back in July of 2008 I had an all time favorite post, it was this one, about a little red chair we had while my niece, Ella was visiting. Well, Ella is back in full force and the little red chair has a new partner. We tried to capture another 'Little Red Chair at the Beach' picture this year and it was an ADVENTURE to say the least.....I've included the out takes so you can enjoy them as much as we did.

We think Ella is getting ready for the picture here....But then she turns around and takes off!
Then Ella learned how to tip her chair over!
And she was off & running again.
At one point in time Allison actually stood up, pointed her finger and started talking her gibberish. We have no idea what she was saying but we're pretty sure she was telling her silly cousin to sit down & behave!
Allison cooperating.
And finally, our two girls!
I haven't done any photo-editing on these yet, I'm hoping I can get rid of the stickers on the back but we shall see! Back to enjoying time with the family!

Our Little Biker Babe

Summer seems to have finally arrived here! We celebrated by going for a bike ride on Saturday. I'm very thankful we decided to hire someone to clean our house - it makes it much easier to get out and do these things guilt if only we could out-source the grocery shopping so Mark doesn't have to make a late night dash to WinCo on Monday nights =). We rode all the way out to Philomath and when we got there we realized we were just a few blocks away from our friend, Cara Lynn's house. So we dropped in for a quick little visit - she hadn't seen Allison in months so it was quite the treat. We're hoping to make it out to visit on our bikes more often!
