One More Camping Story . . .

Sorry, no picture to go with it, but too funny not to post! Remember the bike Elijah got for his 3rd birthday? Well, he was riding it around the campground as I followed him and a cute little girl, probably around 4 years old and wearing a bikini, stopped and stared at him.
"I really like your bike" she said.
Elijah just stared back.
"Where did he get it?" she asked me.
I encouraged Elijah to answer her question.
Elijah just stared back.
So I answered and we went on our way.

A couple of days later, Elijah was again riding his bike around the campground, this time with Dan following and they once again ran into the cute little girl. She smiled and said "Hi" to Elijah.
Elijah just stared back.
Dan encouraged him to say hello back, but
Elijah just stared back.
As they walked away, Dan asked Elijah why he wouldn't say hi to the cute little girl.

His reply was, "She was SO, so cute."

Who knew that his bike would be such a chick magnet? :)

Cute story! It's funny how kids notice those things, even at a very young age.

The story reminds me of when we took a school field trip to Devil's Lake (my boys were 2 and 5 at the time), and a pre-schooler girl chased my 2-year-old around the park. He was laughing, hiding, and enjoying the experience.

When my younger son was 5 or so, a girl two years younger said to her mom (in front of us), "He's so cute!" My son just smiled.

That is hysterical!

And can I say I am so JEALOUS of the trip to Ikea! Do tell all! I have looked online and at the catalog so enviously for ages!
