Life is cozy in the coupe

I know that we all see these kid cars littered all over the country-side. Before we had kids I would see them everywhere, on lawns, in driveways and on sidewalks. And then once we had kids I would see even more.

But, somehow, we never owned a cozy coupe until we had our third child.

Last summer Jillian received a cozy coupe for her birthday in August. And, you are not going to believe this...but the car remained in the house in the living room until this spring. Yes, she rode the car around the house.

When spring came the car made its way out the door. Since heading out, the coupe has put on many, many miles. Sometimes she is pushing it while sitting inside with her feet. Other times I push it and she holds her feet up. And, other times she pushes it from behind.



Yesterday afternoon, our neighbour rolled over in his orange cozy coupe. Before I knew it they were headed down the sidewalk in a coupe race! They rode and they pushed, they traded and they yelled to each other.

This is what summer is all about!

Living outside.

Kids playing with the neighbourhood kids.

Running through the sprinkler.

Having barbeque for supper.

Emily and her friend eating supper outside at the patio table.

The sound of lawn mowers in the evening.



Even chasing a two year old and a one year old down the street in their cozy coupes!

Hope everyone had a great weekend.

What are your favourite sights and sounds of summer?

We had the cozy coupe too! Except we had the one that was yellow and red. We also had a little tikes purple car. Little Tikes rules!

Suzanne said...

I think a cozy coupe is the new tricycle...childhood is almost incomplete without one...even if they never remember it.:-) Have fun, Jillian!

great pictures. I love seeing children playing together

Janet said...

Now those are really sweet and I can see they give a lot fun! I love the soft, sweet smells of newly mown lawn, vanilla ice-cream, walks in the meadow and dangling my feet in a cold pool to cool down - oh and dinner under the old tree listening to clicking of the insects in the trees! Those are my favourite parts of summer!

Hooray for summer! I've never seen a pink/purple coupe - how fun! Love pool days and the smell of sunscreen.

Great coupe!! I can just picture them "cruising" down the street together!

Sue said...

I saw last week on my blog hopping journey (forget where now) that those little coupes are the #1 best selling car - who knew? And so fuel efficient too!

Glad she's having a blast with it now that it's seen the pavement ;-)

Hugs

she is way cute... and im with jen... i've never seen a coupe that color before! she's riding is style!!

Sara @ Domestically Challenged said...

Yes, we have one of those too. A manly firetruck one though, as we have boys. It has been the source of many hours of entertainment and a few accidents!
You are so right, that is what summer is all about, isn't it?

I love BBQs. She is so cute!

Jillene said...

My mom has a little coupe for the kids. They love it.

I love the smell of a good BBQ!! Nothing says summer like a BBQ!!

Love the cozy coupes for kids! A funny little story....I heard on the news the cozy coupe is the best selling car in America, selling the more units than any other car company..lol.

Cascia said...

That is cute! I agree summer is for playing outside. My kids don't have a toy like that but it looks like a lot of fun! Besides I would never ever let them ride a bike, or push car down the sidewalk in my neighborhood. It just isn't safe.

lovelila said...

I actually did a series in my blog called "Things I Love About Summer," and it includes: travel, snowballs, crawfish, and BBQs... mostly food stuff, haha! I love summer time!

Nancy said...

Those are cute! For some reason we never had a cozy coupe, we had big wheels and little preschool bikes though and those were equally fun. :-)

The Blonde Duck said...

I want a pink one in my size!

lagirl said...

I'm thinking what good gas mileage those bikes must get and what great exercise. Can I order 3? LOL

My Summer loves -
1. Sleeping late
2. Smelling Honeysuckle
3. Flip Flops

Audrey said...

That's too cute!! They were all over the place when the boys were little too, but we live in the country, they don't work so well on gravel.

Greetings from Guatemala said...

Cute story! visiting from SITS.

Jennifer said...

I'm going to have to get a Cozy Coupe for my little one pretty soon. Hopefully I won't get run over!

momof3girls said...

The laughter of kids coming in from the front yard!! I love it! Your pictures look like you all are really enjoying summer - keep it up! Your doing a great job!

Jenni Jiggety said...

We loved our Cozy Coupe back in the day! Cute pics!

MelanieSolijon said...

Summer is the best time to play for the the kids and with the kids. We should enjoy their childhood. Soon they'll be too sexy to play. Thanks for sharing.

Kelly said...

I wish driving around were that easy!! Have a great week!

Bee and Rose said...

We had a cozy coupe too! My kids loved it!

I am loving Jillian's shoes!

You described summer perfectly!

Kate said...

I love going for walks and everyone is outside talking and enjoying. I love family get togethers and barbeques. Summer is the greatest.
