Met a Group of Girls in an Escalade...

We bought the kids one of those automatic car thingies.  Well, it was Scott's idea, mostly.  So if there are any head injuries, blame him.

My favorite parts of the video below are:

1.  Ashley trying to do donuts in the driveway.

2.  Aidan acting like a total goofball behind the car while Owen is trying to learn how to drive (which I didn't even notice until uploading the video).

3.  How much that car had to w-o-o-o-o-o-o-o-r-k to get up that hill when I was a passenger.  Maybe I need to cool it on the butterfinger blizzards for awhile.


Also, I need a tan.  Need to get on that, stat.

Looks like a lot of fun. I hate the age limits on fun toys too!! :)

LOL! That is awesome but I must say, I am kinda glad your kids have a while before they will be really driving. ;)

Holly Ann said...

That is so cool! And you are plenty thin - you eat all the blizzards you want, girl!! Oh, and you have a pretty voice too. I always think I sound like a mouse. lol

My husband told me he wants to get our girls one of those cars for their 3rd birthday - he says it's never too early to teach kids to drive. I say, it's never too early to have mom go crazy with yet something else to supervise! :)

Speaking of tan, I just bought some Jergens Natural Glow. I'm hoping it works wonders! :)

Kmama said...

Ha! So fun!! I loved watch your boys "learn" to drive. So stinkin cute.

who needs a tan when they're rollin' in an escalade? exactly.

maybe you should consider installing a stereo system in the escalade.

We got one of those from a friend of ours and Bridget will only drive it for about 5 feet before she jumps out and says DONE! I think once she gets the hang of it she will be all over the place!

At least it has seatbelts. I can't let my kids see this video. I'm trying to convince them that those cars are just displays at the store, and no one actually buys them. This video could completely undermine my credibility as a parent.

I kept thinking that your husband was brave to leave the real truck in the driveway. I kept waiting for the Escalade to clip the Chevy!

Aidan is hysterical when he's behind the car...and Ashley is just playing wit her hair waiting for Owen to get the hang of it! What fun!

I don't even want to think about what would happen if I got on to the Crazies' quads...total meltdown is what I'm predicting!
