Sara Beth loves escalators.  Whenever we are at the mall, she will ask to go on any one that she sees.  And now when we read a book with pictures of alligators, she will point to them and proudly proclaim "escalator," though I think she is being silly as she says it with a silly smile on her face.

We went to "The Taste of Dallas" downtown over the weekend.  Sara Beth sat in wide eyed silence as we took the light-rail down to the event.  She has seen the train from a distance before, but this is the first time she sat on it.  Once we got down there, Sara Beth wanted to be carried the whole time so that she could be above the crowds of people.  I don't know how much she weighs, but the next day, my shoulders were sore.  I think I need to life some heaver weights at the gym.  While down there, there was a setup with some hula hops.  Sara Beth saw some older kids use them and figured that she could get in on the action as well.

She also saw a bear statue so we had to get closer to investigate.

If given the choice between taking a bath or a shower, Sara Beth will always choose the shower.  She loves carrying her towel and shampoo to the master bath where she takes her shower and will get rather upset if one of us carries the items for her. 

So, this picture needs some explanation: first, it was raining outside.  And when it rains out, Sara Beth wants to wear her rain coat, despite the fact that she was not actually going out side.  The mere sight of precipitation sends her scurrying to her closet for the jacket.  And second, she wanted to help me clean up with the dust buster.

Sara Beth tries to be a big "helper" around the house.  I don't know if she does it out of a sense of kindness as she sees Heather or I doing a chore or out of a sense of "that looks like fun, let me do it."  Regardless, in addition to dust busting the floors, she also helps to water the trees in the backyard too.
