four wheelin'

This little four wheeler has been on loan to us from some sweet friends. It is the best toy that Levi has and we didn't even have to buy it! He seriously rides it ALL THE TIME. We are constantly plugging it in to charge the battery. We were joking the other day that we are going to end up buying a new four wheeler for our friends when they need it back AND buy the boys their own four wheeler. Levi has definitely put the miles on this one. Lately he has been riding the fields to check out the growing corn...just like Daddy.

 But someone else in our house discovered the four wheeler the other day. I plopped him on the four wheeler while Levi was off playing somewhere else in the yard and he thought he was such a big boy. Pretty soon Levi noticed and he wanted to ride too.

 Levi told Griffin that it was actually HIS four wheeler.

 Then he tried to show him how to make it go.

And I'm really not sure what he was doing here...I had to intervene quickly. Let's just pretend it was a little brotherly love.

 Levi moved on to something else and Griffin got to try riding solo again.

I think he preferred riding by himself. Maybe because he didn't have to worry about any surprise attacks from behind!

I have a feeling four wheelers are going to be a major part of my life for a very long time. If Levi isn't riding around our yard, he is begging to ride the real four wheeler at the farm with his daddy. My boys love to go four wheelin' (and that includes the big boy in my house too!).

Have a great weekend!

Boys do love their toys! My son started on one of these small ones when he was around 2 - he's now 7 and has graduated to a bigger one but he is ALWAYS on it! Best money we ever spent :) He loves to help dad in the yard by hauling things around in his four wheeler. Just a heads up though - they tend to be braver than a mama's heart would like and I've had to run behind and bodily stop that thing at times! Your boys are adorable - they are going to have so much fun growing up together :)

ahhhh, I love seeing this 4-wheeler getting so much use right now. It would just be sitting in our shed. And it doesn't matter to us one bit if it gets worn out - we will be so happy your boys could get so much joy from it! If only Mason would let Levi borrow his big one - with the trailer on the back so he can pull Griffin around. You'll just have to come play over here for that one! I love these pictures, and can't believe Griffin is big enough to sit on there!

What sweet pictures of adorable brothers!! They are too much! I've been meaning to ask you for awhile, but would you be interested in doing a short post on your photography? You take amazing pictures and I'd especially love to know how your indoor shots are so crisp and clear. Do you have windows everywhere and is the sun always shining? :) I'd love to know what some of your settings are, what your favorite lens is, and any other tips you might have. I have a 2 year old daughter (a few days apart from Levi) and she's always on the move. Catching a non-blurry image on manual isn't the easiest, especially indoors. I'd love to know your secrets! (As a side note, we are expecting a baby boy due this July...we are naming him Levi!)

Thanks!!

I check your blog every now and then and have never left a comment. As your children get older, it amazes me how similar the baby is to your little Cora. I'm sure it was God's plan to remind you how blessed your little boy is. I only hope I can remind myself to appreciate my little ones as much as you do.

Darling! I love the "brotherly love" pic, too. :) Maybe Levi was looking for a little Evel Knievel action...riding without looking? ha! They are too cute!
