2 Wheels!

Saturday was a big day for Calvin....he learned how to ride his bike with no training wheels! He has been asking for a while now, so we took him to the Embassy parking lot to give him plenty of room to ride.

He was so excited! We talked to him the whole way there about how he is going to fall, but that it's ok and just part of learning to ride. Well he sure did prove us wrong! The very first time Ryan let go he just took off!

Before we knew it he was riding in circles with no problems.

He was so proud of himself and was having so much fun.

The only thing that gave him any trouble was getting started and figuring out where to have the pedals when you start.

Other than that, he was a pro.

While Calvin was learning to ride, Alayna spent her time picking flowers.

She is such a girly girl! She is just getting so big, and I am sure it won't be long till she is up on 2 wheels too.

When it was time to go home Calvin said "I sure hope this wasn't just a dream!"

We couldn't believe that he hadn't fallen even one time. We are so proud of him!

Tell the big man he rocks! Looks like he'll be ready for is hog any day now! Of course leather jackets in his size might be an issue...
