One of my favorite childhood memories was riding a bike around our neighborhood. My brother, who taught me how to ride my one and only Sears Spyder Bike with rad banana seat, and I would ride around the street in the late afternoon until my mom called out that it was dinner time. Those were the days.
Needless to say, learning to ride a bike is something I really want my kids to know how to do early on. This past Christmas we decided to get Lucas a new balance bike. The previous one he had was pretty cool but didn't fit him quite right and admittedly, we didn't take him out riding enough. This time around we chose the Public Mini V Kids Balance Bike in green. How cute is it with its retro styling, bell, and leather handles and seat? After quickly adjusting it for the proper height, Lucas gave his new bike a whirl around his Nana and Grandad's flat driveway. Note: Lucas always wears a helmet when he rides, but we forgot it at home that day and figured it would be okay for him to try out his new bike in the driveway without one. I'm a staunch advocate for wearing a helmet and we love our Nutcase 8 Ball helmet.
Initially a tad too high for Lucas, Nick was easily able to adjust it to the proper height.
Of course, Theo wants to do everything Lucas does so we let him have a spin. :) Get that paci out, Theo!
Love the cotton candy sky here.
Not a fall, but Lucas saying, "I'm SO tired, mama!"
