We celebrated Avi's 4th birthday yesterday as a family. I picked the girls up at the end of the day and took them to campus to let Avi play with her sidewalk chalk while we were waiting for Drew to meet us. We had a fun time writing and drawing, and I even got her to cooperate for a picture under the words happy birthday.
Soon enough, Drew met us, and he had Avi's birthday present from us with him. When Drew arrived, she ran to meet him, and she showed him all of our beautiful sidewalk chalk artwork!
Drew decided it would be great to give Avi her bicycle helmet first and tell her that was her gift from us. As you can tell, she was anticipating the gift Daddy was hiding behind his back.
So, while Daddy "went home to get her tricycle," we passed the time with our sidewalk chalk (wearing her new helmet of course!).
And then she spotted Drew coming toward us with her new bike! She was very excited! I don't think she was expecting it. She had been asking for a bike for at least 4 or 5 months now, and we kept telling her she might get one for her birthday. Lately, though, she had been coming up with all sorts of other items she wanted for her birthday, namely a guitar and a violin??! Who knows! But, thankfully she was happy with the bike.
It is a Hello Kitty bicycle. It was the cutest one I could find. The disney princess one was a bit over the top for my taste, so we went with this one.
The bike is maybe a tiny bit big for her still, but we knew she would be too big for the one smaller than this one. She can ride it, but it may take her a little while to get used to it.
And I had to add this picture of Sally Sharp. I mean, she's ready to go out on the town! She has her headband on and everything! On this particular night, she was in Avi's room by herself, and we peeked around the door to find her with about 3 headbands on her head! I wasn't quick enough to get my camera out for a picture of that (she laughed out loud when she saw us!). But, she did keep one of the headbands on, and I think she looks adorable. She already wants to be just like her sister!
