Why do birds sing from up above?

So, we were all at the mall yesterday, shopping and basically wandering around. We stopped at the food court to have lunch, and we were sitting there eating - Wayne, myself, Dakotah, and Paige, in her wheelchair.

Paige was pushed up to the side of the table with her back to the restaurant part of the food court. She was dressed for Valentine's day - with her big puffy white jacket on that has big pink and teal and blue and green and yellow hearts on it. Her hair was down, and she looked cute as a button, if I do say so myself.

As we are eating, this young man about 15 or 16 wheels by us in his electric wheelchair. He is very blonde, with striking blue eyes. He goes by us, and tries to get a glimpse of Paige - definitely trying to check out the girl who uses the same means of transportation that he does.

Because of the way she was facing, he couldn't get a good look at her. So he came back by. And then he went by again. And again. Finally, he parked himself half way across the food court facing us.

We were all like "omg, he is TOTALLY checking her out."

It was so funny, most especially because Dakotah was also with us. And if any of you have ever had a 16 year old daughter, you know the preparation involved in going to the mall - the contemplation of what clothes to wear, how to fix your hair, putting on makeup, selecting the right shoes - the list goes on and on.

No one seemed to notice Dakotah - but that boy sure seemed to want to get a good look at Miss Paige.

That's the 2nd boy in a month that has been sweet on Paige.

Look out, Dakotah, your little sister is gonna be competition in a few years :)

Oh my goodness.....I just LOVE it. How cute. I have to agree, Miss Paige is one beautiful girl.

and isn't it funny that when we 'want' to attract attention to ourselves [as our teenage daughters like to do] it is those how are just doing their thing in their pure essence, are the ones who gather the attention.

Happy Valentine's Day to you all.....especially our sweet Paige
