Deja Vu

It was the first sunny day in about a week, so I thought we would load up the stroller and bike and try to do about a half mile around our park and see how things went.  It was slow going and at times I wondered why I was so optimistic as to take the time to adorn myself in running clothes, but all in all it was good start.

Here is the enthusiasm before we began.  It probably took us just as long to get ready and load the car as it did to walk/run the entire route.

He got a lot of practice figuring out his brakes (about every two seconds).  This picture reminds me of this post from 2010.  He's not a speed demon yet, but he's got at least a year and a half to catch up and it was fun to see him really try out his new bike without his big brother telling him what to do.

I kept telling him to look where he was going in order to steer the bike and this is the end result after looking at a bird off in the distance.

Then came the hill.  He got a bit nervous when the bike started to drift backward.

Even after a few pushes, he decided that walking back to the car was his best bet.  It was certainly faster.

Proud of his efforts, but excited to get on with his day...such a big personality in a small package.  Gotta love it!
