Bicycle! Bicycle!

Remember those idyllic times when you finally learned how to ride a bike? Our kids just learned within the past few days. We took their training wheels off a long time ago, but they were too "scared" to ride the bikes without them. This year, one of their best friends, our neighbor's kid, showed them how easy it was to do, and then of course THEY wanted to do it too.

So, we put some air in their tires and lowered their seats so they wouldn't be too scared of falling over - they could just put their feet flat on the ground. Once they got the hang of riding, we raised their seats and now they're riding fools.

Here's a video DH put together this weekend. It's cute. Enjoy it!

Awww! Congrats :)

It's cool how fast they learn once they decide to do it.

We kept trying over the summer and Mike wasn't getting it. Finally, in September, he saw the next door neighbor girl could do it, and bam, not 10 mins later he was riding his bike.

Kids are funny. :)
