How to get a smile

Well, now I know how to get Sara Beth to smile for the camera: give her a bicycle.

Heather likes to plan ahead, so she found Sara Beth's birthday present (the bike) months ago, and we have been storing it in the attic for her Birthday. Well, I decided that we could let her have it early so she could get more use out of it (Heather had been ready to do this for a while and was just patiently waiting for me). So, my parents get her a helmet, I stay up late one night assembling it in the garage. The next day, she wasn't on the best behavior, so we didn't let her know that it was sitting out in the garage. But then, she had a day where we didn't worry about rewarding poor behavior and bring her out into the garage. She has no problems smiling for the camera.

My parents brought over some of my old toys like a metal tractor and wagon that goes behind it. Sara Beth loves it and will haul stuff around the house in the wagon. Earlier this week, she was pulling a full load of markers into the dining room. This time, she filled it up with underwear and was taking it to her playroom.
