You NEVER Forget -- Like Riding A Bike!

We camped this past week... me and the kids.  There were challenges and triumphs but the biggest of all...

THE BOYS RODE A TRICYCLE
FOR THE VERY FIRST TIME! 

I mean really rode... not just 2 rotations of the pedals as they've done for about a year now.  My Big Little Man just got on his cousin's trike and rode.  So the Little Man said, "My Turn!" and followed suit... lest his brother grab all the limelight!  So, instead of pics today, I'm sharing video thanks to my girlfriend who had the wherewithal to grab her phone and shoot!  Though we missed the initial moments where he first jumped on and rode, you can see that they get it now!  Priceless!

Gotta go buy myself 2 copies of that trike!

  1. Wow...what a wonderful moment. My daughter (who is 3 1/2 w/DS) wants to get on the tricycle but can't even reach the pedals yet. LOL. Of course, she can't talk, either, so that's more important to me right now! LOL

  9. Beverly -- We've been pushing and trying too... for years... but nothing we did mattered. It came down to a big crowd of cousins/kids riding bikes all over the campground that pushed them to do it for themselves. I guess that's what integration is really all about huh?
