Riley's Skateboards

Riley has been bugging us for months to get her some roller skates. But she doesn't call them roller skates...she calls them skateboards. She's wanted some ever since she found Casey's old roller blades when we were packing our things to move. We found the perfect roller skates at the store the other day so we decided to get them for her.

Here are some pictures of Riley with her "skateboards":

the carpet was pretty easy to ride on....

but the kitchen floor was a little harder for her to keep her balance!

good thing Ryan was there to help!

here he is "helping" some more!

cute little buddies!

After awhile she was getting pretty brave and started doing some sweet jumps!

Of course Ryan had to try them out, too!

Riley did a good job at helping him out!

Flashback Friday♥

I took this picture of Riley when we lived in West Jordan. She was about 7 months old. I just love her chubby little cheeks! It's hard to believe that she will be 4 years old in October!

Casey got some free Omaha Royals tickets from work and so we thought it would be fun to take the kids to the game! Riley loved the music and loved clapping and cheering. Ryan really didn't know what to think about it when we first got there....but I think he started having more fun after we had been there for awhile.

Riley was pretty excited!

now he's starting to get into the game

First Day of School!

Riley had her first day of preschool today! When I went to pick her up she told me that she had fun and that she wanted to see her teachers again. She had a really good time! It's so fun to have her be in school now!

Ryan was a little sad when he didn't see his big sister in the seat next to him after we dropped her off at school
It was so weird dropping Riley off at school and then coming home and not having her there all morning. It was so quiet with just me and Ryan! He wasn't sure what to do without Riley there. I think he missed her...he was pretty excited to see her when we went to pick her up!
