big boy bike

Photobucket

today, just two days before turning four, nashy mastered* a big boy bike! no training wheels involved. ever. all i can say is i am now a firm believer in balance bikes. nash rode one for maybe an hour a week for the last two months. he got his shiny new bike this morning and...well, see for yourself:



*i'm using the term "mastered" loosely here. he still needs to work on getting started on his own + braking instead of using his shoes to stop. but seriously, this is his first time riding his bike. super impressive.


okay, sorry i made you watch that. it lacks excitement. yes, this was the best footage i had. unless you want to see the super poor-quality video i took with my phone (which is not an iphone). you'd also have to hear me yelling in excitement like only the proudest parent can do.

p.s. stay tuned for photos of nash's birthday party - argh, and the cutest pirates ye ever did see...

Not boring at all if you ask me... but then again, I might be a little biased for one reason or another. Way to go Nash! What kind of balance bike did he have?

i'm excited to see him in action next week. maybe we can all go for a ride. just keep him away from any parked boats.

WAY TO GO NASH!!! I am so impressed. He is amazing and I can't wait to see him ride in real life.

I am sold on the balance bike. I am pretty sure we have ruined emery since she has been riding the training wheels forever.
