Big girl beds

Audrey and Lydia are officially girls and and not babies. It's one of the sad things about not having any more kids. I almost hate to see specific stages come to an end. Don't get me wrong. It was well time. The girls had been climbing out of their cribs for about a month when I finally bit the bullet and put them into the toddler beds. This was them on the second night. At least they were both in their beds. Lydia is kinda in between two beds, while Audrey still looks like she is sleeping in a crib. I have now decorated the room and it looks really cute. We framed a picture and put up their initials on the wall above their bed. We got a toy bin for the other side of Lydia's bed and a book shelf and lamp for Audrey's side. I painted a mirror that my Uncle Hal and Auntie Carol gave me when they moved away a few years back. It all came together and when I get their curtains finished I will photograph it and let you all see.

For the most part it hasn't been a big deal. I now have to sit with them to get them to take a nap. Usually about 10-15 min. is all it will take. For bedtime we just read a story and put them down. They do the rest. I think it helps that it's dark. We have found them in each others beds a lot, on the floor a few times, but mostly just in their own big girl beds.

Tour of California 2011

This was us waiting for the riders to come past us. It was a good thing we didn't have to wait too long there as there was only the sidewalk and then the road. The girls didn't want to sit in their chairs and kept walking into the street. See the look on Bjorn's face, what a nightmare to keep them all in their chairs. There is the ring leader herself right in front, Miss Audrey.

We had a great time seeing all the riders and even scored a water bottle from one of the riders who was off loading it as he past our section. Having a friend who lives right across the street of this stage was really nice. We stayed in her home till about 10 min. before they got there and then ran across the street to check it all out.
The only thing about seeing it live is that you don't know who is in front, who just passed you, or how well your team is doing. It's not the same as having Paul Sherwin and Phil Liggiot in your ear, but a fun day non the less.

Too cold to swim

Thanks Auntie Leslie for the cute birthday box of swimming suits, undies and other fun stuff. The girls wanted to wear them right away, but as you can see it was a rather cold day so they put them on over their clothes and wore them the entire day!
