And Away She Goes

there was a very brief moment earlier this month that it seemed like spring was actually going to make an appearance and we were so so so excited to feel her warm breeze and to be able to spend more time outdoors.  obviously we started talking about all of our favourite spring activities that we have been dreaming about and one of the first ones that was tossed in the pile was bike riding.  we started talking about moving Quinn to a two wheel bike and giving Aisley Quinn's bike with training wheels.  we talked about how it would happen at some point ... then this conversation turned to .... lets get the bike out now and let me try.  


a little bit of adjusting and she was ready to go.  it didn't take long for her to get the hang of it, she had a couple good falls but after only a few times down the street this kid had it.  the smile on her face was spellbinding and the excitement exuding off of her was contagious.  

it was one of those moments that i will always remember, i am one very proud mama.  she was so excited that she had learned to ride on two wheels that the next morning she rode her bike all the way to the bus stop (and this lucky mama got to carry it home) 





the weather has been crazy this spring but we have been able to do a little more biking.  she can almost get herself started now and once she gets that there will be no stopping this kid.
