Husband #1 gives her a push off and there she goes! He is behind her clapping :)
I just love this one...you can see her little mouth concentration and everything is out of focus but her.
A couple of things to note:
1 - we DO NOT make our children wear all of that safety gear. We require the helmet but the elbow and knee pads are their choice, not ours!
2- Upon viewing these photos the need for a larger bike has become glaringly obvious!
Here is one of Bumblebee:
I am not sure if you can see but he has on gardening gloves, cowboy boots with one pant leg tucked in, elbow pads and just one knee pad. He just got his bike for Christmas but decided since his sister was taking off her training wheels, he should, too. He obviously did not do as well so we immediately put them back on. We also think he just wanted to use the tools to take them off.
Now, the problem is she cannot get started without our help. (or so she thinks) So she cannot just get out there and play in the yard with her bike unless we are there. We'll get there!
