my little mini-me

So, I'm not actually talking about mini-me the bike this time... It's my niece, miss Taylor. Look at the little Diva. This was Easter, which was also at my house my mom's birthday celebration... her Birthday is Thursday, the day we leave for Rocky Point for our race....

Head to toe this little one is ALL girl. Her pretty Easter Dress (shockingly NOT pink), the sunglasses, coach purse next to her. Oh, and if you didn't notice the shoes. She came in her most fancy 'heels' - her Ariel princess shoes, but of course you know, they were hurting her feet. She wondered if maybe she could borrow a pair of mine. Convenient, no? Pretty soon I'm going to have to start hiding the heels from her - she'll be taller than me in no time. I'm getting used to this happening.

So, she's all glammed up here, but what you don't know is what she had already done that day.....
I heard something about a 5am wakeup call to mom and dad because the Easter Bunny had come with vengeance. Eggs ALL over her room, and house & yard. There was some bargaining about resting a little bit more.... So the day started at 5:30am. Wonder who won that?

After all the candy and egg hunting festivities mom & Tay got on their bikes to meet her daddy halfway into his long run & ride home with him. The girl rode for 1:15mins! And after that she wasn't done..... She ran a half mile around the track.

Are you seeing where I'm going with this. The girl just needed 20mins in the pool and she's got her own triathlon. Not to mention more activity than 75% of the population.

She's SO my child. My sister just gave birth to her....and all that stuff that goes with it.

You see, this Saturday, while Shane & I will be competing in this.... Miss Taylor will be having her own race day.

I'm so bummed I'm going to miss her first race, but hopefully it won't be her last! And, who knows..... She seemed to like this finish line an awful lot... Just saying.
