Ride 'Em Emma!

Our good friends Lorana and Earl dropped by this week and presented Emma with her very own rocking horse. It rocks. Lorana and Earl rock! Earl has made too many horses to count. They are all collectors items. Emma climbed on and took off. She is a natural. She even ran into her room and got her blanket, and then proceeded to put the blanket on top of the seat to soften her ride. I told Earl the next horse should include "tuck and roll."

Since our last entry, Emma has graduated from her crib. Her commencement was punctuated by Emma performing an "Acapulco-style" cliff dive over the rail to the floor (I gave her an 8 out of 10). We are still working out the details of keeping a toddler in her own room at night with out the benefit of some solid, well placed bars. Cribs is wonderful.

Denny and Emma have both had a cold this past week. They are on the mend, but it made for some long nights. Emma reminded me of that actress who called Barney "doll" on Andy of Mayberry. Strange sounds from a two-year old.

I am in DC this week, at a business forum, and wish my girls we with me. They both travel so well. I have included a photo of the changing of the guard at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier. Great respect and precision!

OK then
