Our cyclists... and a fan


It's been a big week at our house: Parker learned how to ride a bike - without training wheels! Alyssa hit this milestone last summer, but when we pulled out the big bike she received for Christmas we left the extra wheels on so she could get used to the height. Last Friday we decided to take them off, and by Tuesday Parker was insisting that his training wheels be removed as well. Though he hasn't yet mastered the starting and stopping part (hence the fat lip!), he's doing remarkably well for a 3 1/2 year-old on his second day... at least in this mom's not-so-humble opinion! For now, our sweet little Reagan is happy to sit in the back of brother's pick-up and cheer them on, but I have a feeling it won't be long before she wants to get in on the action too!

Of course his grandparents--all four of them--are not the least surprised!!

That is really an accomplishment! Ruby's Alyssa's age, and she's still somewhat timid with the trainers on. I guess that's because you pretty much have nine months with no outdoor activites in the NW. Shoot, I am getting so sick of that!
