1st Date with Daddy!

As I mentioned in a few posts back, Emily had her first date with her sweet Daddy a couple of weekends ago. They went to a car meet (I guess that is what you would call it) with a bunch of guys Derek works with at Nissan. They meet up every couple of weeks on a Sat. morning for coffee and lots of the guys bring their kids. Derek commented later that it might not be the best place for a curious 2.5 yr. old (especially one that is so enamoured with cars!) But all in all, they had lots of fun and Em is still talking about it. As you can see from the pics below, she got to sit in a Ferrari...I don't think I have ever even done that. The problem was that Derek said she wanted to sit in and drive all of the cars. What a shocker! Almost every time we are in the car, she says, "I wanna drive one time" and puts her pointer finger in the air. It's cute but can be exhausting. I have never seen a 2 year old girl that loves all things cars so much. Even this morning on the way to the doctor (oh post below w/ baby update:) she of course notices the car carrier on the interstate. It cracks me up!

On a side note...she says the funniest things. On her date with Derek, they were walking past a new black Infiniti and she says, "Hey Dad, that car's pretty cool!" This afternoon when we met D for lunch he asks if she wants to click the top of her car seat, she says, "It would be my pleasure!" And one of my all time favorites usualy comes when we the three of us are all together really engaged in quality time and she says, "Isn't this fun?" Seriously those are direct quotes. She is so hilarious!

...Here's looking forward to lots more dates with an awesome Daddy!!

Our newest car purchase...hahaha...Derek wishes (I wouldn't mind either:)!!
