and trying out the neighbor boys new toy! Rylee had just explained to me that she was never going to drive and that she would just always have Mama and Daddy drive her wherever she wanted to go when she gets bigger. I told her we would wait and see if she changed her mind. It didn't take her long to hitch a ride with the neighborhood boys and before we knew it she was off and weaving her own trail through the park!
And then when we made her get off and give the truck back so that the boys did not have to push it home with a dead battery - we got this face...
and then she told me that she wished she could go live at their house. I said "What - just because they have a truck you want to live with them?" "Well, yes Mama - we don't have one at our house so PLEASE I just wanna live with them!" At least it only took a couple of minutes before the sad face was gone and she had moved on to the next fun thing!
Here is one of my favorite pictures from this Christmas break. This is not something I see that often anymore. Hanna snuggles less with her Dad these days and just look at how big she looks stretched out in that chair with him!
