Black and White Wednesday - "Three's A Crowd"

August 3, 2011

Last Sunday Pat and my Dad hit the golf course, so my Mom, the kids, and I went to downtown Bethlehem to hit a few shops and to walk around. We all had fun and grandma treated all the kids to something special at the Moravian Bookstore. All three of them love to go in there.

Once we got home, we went outside on the deck. Mom and I cracked open a much needed bottle of wine and we watched the kids play while we were waiting for the men to get back home.

The girls were running around and dancing. Both Sarah and Reagan are really into music, so as soon as we turned on the music, they were totally giddy.

Nick grabbed his skateboard and was doing little "tricks"......and the minute the girls saw him, they made a mad dash for his board.

Grandma tried to assist so they could attempt to all "ride" it at the same time......

Eventually, all three got on the skateboard, but it was a tight squeeze.

Reagan and Nick on the sk8board BLOG
Nick suggested that he take each of the girls for a ride, one at a time.
Since Reagan is the youngest, she got to go first.

Sarah was not so patiently waiting, while her sister was feeling the wind in her hair.....and sucking those two faithful fingers:)

Sarah's Turn BLOG
Before long, Sarah got her turn..... and now Reagan was crying to get back on.

Eventually, Nick left the girls to their own devices and moved onto something else.

It really makes me smile when I watch the girls try to keep up with Nick.....especially when it comes to Sarah!

You know that saying, "Anything boys can do, girls can do better"?

Well, Sarah has never heard it, but when I look at her face, I imagine that is the very thought that is running through her mind.

Don't let her dainty build fool you...... underneath that pretty little exterior, is a tough and competitive tomboy waiting to emerge.

I have a big 'ol smile plastered on my face - just imagining the wind blowing through their hair as they whipped across the deck. And your Nick is one extraordinary guy to share so lovingly with his sisters.

Such a cute moment - I just love it!!!

(And I'm missing you too!)

How cute & funny! The look on Reagan's face though when it wasn't her turn ... on my, makes you want to run out and buy skateboards for everyone!

Emma likes to think she can match Ryan step for step so I well understand the look in Sarah's eyes.

I love the look on the girls faces while they are waiting for their turns! So cute.

Marla said...

LOL @ poor Reags while she waited her turn!! That is one sad little face. Sarah's funny too, I'm can almost hear her saying "Hurry up!" SO cute to see all three of your "babies" playing together. Hope you have a good rest of the week, my friend!

You take the most beautiful photos! I was trying to search your site to see if you have any posts on lenses. I didn't see anything. What types of lenses do you use or would you recommend? My email is fnffm@yahoo.com Thank you!

LOVE these photos!! You captured so much emotion in them! As a matter of fact, you could tell what was going on just from the photos...no words required! Now, THAT"s talent, my friend!!

One of these days I'll link up to a B/W Wed. myself...I am just so NOT a photographer ;)

Loving the composition on these- beautifully done.

Precious!! I love the last one most! The perspective especially (and because I realize you probably had to be on your tummy too to capture it! The things we do to get the best shot of our little ones!) All are beautiful Lisa! Such a fun lifestyle post!!

Your 3 kids are absolutely gorgeous and you have innate good taste in clothing and accessories. I need to know where you are finding all of these adorable little girl clothes!! :-)

So cute! I love how the girls didn't want to give up their seat on the board. :)

Reagans expression as she waits is classic. It is so hard to be patient and share. I kids still haven't mangaged to master this skill yet.

There is just something oh so special about a big brother who will take time to play with his little sisters. That Nick seems to be one amazing big brother!

I think Sarah and Lauren would get along great!
