After the carnival, the twinners wanted to play outside. They were riding bikes in the driveway, Lucas was unloading things from his car. The next thing I know, I turn around to see this:
They snuck in through a door left open, and Ryan was taking them off on an adventure! It totally made me think of This commercial. I snapped a quick picture (with my phone, thus the poor quality), thinking "This is the picture I will post on their 16th birthday!" Then I pictured them sitting in that car as teenagers - excited to enjoy their freedom by driving alone for the first time to hang out with their friends. I know that I will look at them then, thinking of this day, and feel like I just blinked and they were suddenly this old.
Slow down, sweet babies! Don't grow up so fast!
