This is the first video that we have on a phone of Abbe taking her first few steps. She of course did it while mom was at work.

Dance Begins

Getting ready for my 1st ever Dance class!

Today was Gracelyn's first class of her Dance Class.  Gracelyn is taking a tap and ballet class.  They work on tap movements and hand - eye coordination. Gracelyn has been so excited for her class to start. We went about two weeks ago to pick out her Dance outfits and since she is my shoe girl her expression when they showed her the tap shoes she states," Oh mom look how beautiful they are!".  Gracelyn was not shy at all.  She had no problem jumping right in and participating in her dance class. Hope she enjoys her classes!

Daddy Daughter Moment

Bill has always been jealous that Abbe frequently will fall asleep in my arms but never his.  So this Labor Day she spoiled her daddy!  The pictures look all sweet and stuff but the following pictures you can see that it may have been a con to get her little hand  on the "remote" too!

Biking on Legacy Highway Trails!

We decided to spend the afternoon together as a family and go for a bike ride down on the Legacy Highway Trails.  We drove down to Cenerville and we parked the truck.  We let Gracelyn ride her new bike that she got for her Birthday!  Gracelyn rode 1.2 miles on her bike.  It was slow going but she did awesome.  It was a great teaching moment to try to keep her on the right hand side of the trail.  At one point some people came by us on bike and I had to excuse us for being in their way and her comment was, "Why are those people in MY way." 
After Gracelyn rode we parked her bike and Bill and I and the girls went on a ride up to Farmington a total of 12 miles round trip. It was a great ride except the strong head wind we got on the way back to our truck!
