We took the training wheels off Ayden's bike last summer, but he hasn't been comfortable riding it alone until yesterday. We had some warm weather, so we all went outside and Brent gave Ayden some tips, and within 5 minutes he was riding his bike alone! Here is some skoukum video of our biggest monster, riding his bike!
And some more video of Riley being excited about the world of bikes. Look at me, momma! Just like the big boys!! (this video is probably a bit boring if you are not fantastically in love with our baby like we are...but it's not that long!)
And not to be outdone, Matthew on his skateboard:
Aren't my kids cute? Seriously. Today Ayden and Matthew rode their bikes to Ayden's school, and Matthew rode back. I'm the only member of our family who doesn't own a bike, so I need to get on that bandwagon now...I'm thinking garage sales? Tons of people have bicycles in their garages that they never ride. There is no way we can afford a new one right now. Anyways, the wonderful world of bike riding has been opened up to Ayden and we are super proud and excited that he can do it alone now! He was very persistent on the way to school; numerous times he wound up in the blackberry bushes or the fence or simply the pavement of the path, but he kept getting back on! So great. School is finished for Matthew now! Thursday is Ayden's last day! Hooray for SUMMER!!!!!!!!!! [wow, it takes a long time to upload three videos to blogger. i hope you enjoy them, that took over an hour!]
