New Driver In The Family

Photobucket

We received a battery powered firetruck as a gift from my dad and stepmom when Seamus was 14 months old. Haven always drove. Seamus always rode in the passenger seat.

When Marlie joined the family, we started doing our neighborhood walks with her behind the firetruck, in a stroller. She didn't complain. And we knew the time would come when Seamus would be the driver and she would be the passenger. Well, ladies and gentleman... that time has now come.

With the milestone of his 5th birthday, we decided to let Seamus drive the firetruck for the first time. And Marlie was his passenger.

So if you happen to be walking in a neighborhood that has a purple house... you may want to stay off the sidewalks. Let's just say that Seamus is slightly less reserved than Haven when it comes to being crazy. And we love him for it!

  5. Marlie looks like she's a much-more enthused passenger than Seamus was...or maybe it's just all the spunk she has!
