Scooters + Summer = Smiles

Doesn't summer just say scooter to you?

I never thought it would to me -- as I have a very cautious personality. Although I hate to admit it, sometimes I'm a bit like Eeyore -- something bad is going to happen, I just know it! And I've always felt that way about motorcycles and motorscooters too. Well, until Mr. Tennis got one, that is. I was still a bit nervous about them, but he took a 15-hour motorcycle safety course and passed with flying colors. He is very cautious and wears a NEON orange vest whenever he rides.

Recently, his motorscooter needed a new battery or something, so his friend (the dealer -- that sounds kind of bad, doesn't it) gave him a loaner. Oh my word -- it is the cutest scooter ever! If I could, I would ride it all over the place! Maddy was not too keen on it -- after all, does Taylor Swift ride a motor scooter?? I think not. But somebody else loved it! Look at Cboo - he's putting it at the top of his list of things he's saving for and it definitely put passing the motorcycle test at the top of his "things to accomplish." Probably a good thing this one was a loaner and the standard issue one will be back soon as I have a feeling the "green machine" would not be sticking around our place once somebody got his license!

That's a pretty snazzy looking scooter. I'm definitely the cautious one in the family. I hate being the overprotective mother, but I can't help it.

I think that scooter SCREAMS SUMMER!! I have never been a motorcycle fan, but I do think I could do that cute and fun looking scooter! I had to laugh at the Taylor Swift comment.

Hope you are well.....and I LOVE LOVE LOVE all the pictures of Jodee!! I wish I could have stopped in on my way home from Las Vegas to join in the bday festivities!! One day I will make my way out there...... I promise:)
