From 4 wheels to 2

One of the best things about living in the country is the acres of green grass and lack of concrete everywhere.  One of the worst things for a kid that loves to ride their bike is acres of green grass and the lack of concrete everywhere.  Avery & Austin have had bikes for a year and a half and the majority of their riding time has been spent riding in circles in the garage and small slab where we park.  As much as I'd love to have a concrete drive way for them ride on, I'd prefer to spend that $10,000 else where.  (I despise spending money on things like concrete and rock!)

So... on Thanksgiving when we knew we'd be spending the day at Aunt Bonnie's, we knew it would be agreat time to bring the bikes and scooters along.  It was a great day to try taking off the training wheels and see if we could go from 4 wheels to 2.

Coordination, agility and balance come easy to this girl.  Didn't take her long to catch on to riding without training wheels.

Austin needed a little more help, just a little more reassurance.

And he's off.....

He took a bit of spill and hurt his backside.  As you can see, he was not happy that I was capturing it on camera.

Had to include this picture.... Uncle Jason spent Thurs - Sun with us.  What a treat!!!!
