Bike Riding

Steve is an awesome daddy :) He took Grayson out during a moment of sunshine to teach him to ride his bike! My parents got this balance bike for Gray for Christmas in 2009, and he hasn't really learned how to ride it yet. I got him all safety-geared up, and they headed out to ride. Gray did great for his first time, and even balanced himself for brief periods. (Balance bikes are like big-kid bikes without pedals -- they just push the bike with their feet -- it supposedly teaches them how to balance on a bike faster)  Steve was such a patient teacher and loved every second.  I loved watching them, but I had to hide most of the time -- Gray would yell at me to get back inside if he saw me. What a goof.  Such a precious memory :)



How cute is he?! I was only going to insist on wearing the helmet, but he saw the elbow and knee pads that go with the helmet, and wanted them on, too.  Great!


Look at that concentration! :)

We have a bike like that and it is absolutely amazing. My little girl learned to ride without training wheels after riding around on that bike for just an afternoon.
