James has been waiting...

They really were thrilled to be in there! Honest...

She loved every minute of her first wagon ride!

I love the way she's kind of looking over her shoulder like, "Is this really ok?" James was thrilled to be able to pull her around. It got a little jerky at times! Lauren is going to be a tough cookie...she'll have to be! :)

We have always taken James on many, many walks but this summer it has been more difficult because Lauren didn't like the stroller until recently. James has been waiting all summer for us to be able to take the number of walks we used to be able to. We decided Lauren was probably sturdy enough to handle the wagon so we buckled her in and this is what she thought of it...she LOVED it and James thought it was pretty great too! They laughed at each other all the way around the neighborhood. My heart just soared with excitement along with an overwhelming feeling of joy and contentment. This is one of the first things we've done with the kids together when it seemed like we had two "grown-up" kids. It was a lot of fun and I felt myself getting all teary-eyed. I know, I'm a sappy one...I'm sure we will go on many, many more wagon rides and now that James knows we can all go, he will probably talk me into several a day! :)

Yeah for wagon rides!! They look so cute. I can't believe how old she is getting!

We've kept missing each other at church!!! Crazy, crazy. And are you going to be in the nursery every week? I just got the schedule.

I LOVE the picture of Lauren by herself in the wagon! I think it is one of my favorite ones of her so far. Can't wait to see you guys on Friday!

What is it about kids and wagon rides. I am pretty sure Jett would live in a wagon if given the option. Ours took a dump this summer, so he is in major withdrawl. Glad to see your family is doing well, hopefully we can hangout again soon.
