Krispy Kreme - more than just a donut...

We ended our day with Emily at Krispy Kreme - after all my efforts for healthy lunch and dinner.  :-)  They had so much fun watching the donuts rolling by.  Emerson was SURE they were coating the donuts with yogurt.

Bike Riders!

N&E became two wheel bike riders within a couple of days of each other! 
A couple of days after watching Norah ride her back, Emerson decided he was going to give it a try as well. After about 20 minutes, he had it! He has no fear and his "tricks" he is already trying scare the bejeebers out of me. Hello, Emergency Room... :-)
I spent about 10 minutes with Norah, giving her tips and pushing her along. She then told me she was going to try and do it herself - and she did!  I could hear her talking to herself, whispering "sit up straight, keep your eyes on the road, keep pedalling, keep pedalling, you can do it, Norah..."

Kona and Grandpa!!

Grandpa spent the weekend with us, helping Ryan out with some garage projects.  N&E were loving the extratime with Grandpa's puppy, Kona.  The poor dog may have needed a vacay after all the attention she received.
Grandpa was able to attend Norah's ballet as well - although Kona stayed at home for that.

And all of her cousins on Gramma Joyce's side of the fam!  And N was showered with more beautiful flowers. :-)

Hansel and Gretel Ballet

Norah performed in her first ballet today - Hansel and Gretel - as a Village Maiden.  She had such a wonderful time!

It was a flower craft mothers day this year!
Flower buttons, flower clips, flower button clips and paper flower wreaths!
Norah made all of these!
