I’ve been out sick for the last several days… so I actually have a legitimate excuse for the lack of blog posts lately. LOL It was pretty miserable, so I’m very glad to be on the other side of all that nastiness.
We took the girlie out looking for bikes. With the snow still covering everything, we aren’t in a big rush. But I’m full of Spring thoughts and warm weather wishes… and looking for a two wheeler was a fun springy thing that we could do indoors (where the blowing snow couldn’t get to us).
We visited a couple different stores, and had to have tried out nine or ten different bikes. But I think we may have found a winner. 😀 Unlike all the others that piqued her interest, this one has no tassels, no pink or purple, no fairies or princesses, no doll bike seat, no basket, no flower vase… But when she saw it her eyes lit up and she exclaimed: “Wow!! It’s just like a car for racing!!!”
And, the coolest part?
While I know she’d get the hang of any bike after a little practice, all of them were stop and go. Push one peddle down, wait, push the other down, wait… Well, all of them until she tried this one. She needed a little help to get started, but then took off like a flash! She went about 40 feet without any hesitation or signs of slowing. LOL
So I called her Daddy over to help her out so I could pull out my BlackBerry to take a quick video. 😀
And yes, if I could figure out how to embed a fb video here I would. LMAO But, for now you’ll just have to click on the link.
Lily-Ann finally figured out how to peddle her bike, just in time for her to have outgrown it. LOL Isn’t that always the way? So as we head ever closer to Winter, we are now on the lookout for a new-to-us bike for the wee girlie. The one she has outgrown has 8″ tires, so probably something in the ten to twelve inch range would be right. We’ll be passing her old bike on to someone who needs it, and hoping someone will do the same with one that their little one(s) have outgrown. 🙂 Guessing we’ll probably find one just as the snow hits, and then by Spring, when she can get out and ride, we’ll need the next size up. LMAO So cross your fingers for us, that we find the perfect new-to-us bike sooner rather than later… so the wee girlie actually has time to get out and enjoy it. 😉
