He had such determination when learning to ride this tricycle. Last week we pulled the same tricycle out of our garage while Miles was over and wow what a difference. At this point he was too big for the trike, but wow did he peddle his little heart out. He and Mike spent an hour just riding back and for in front of our home.
By this time the the poor tricycle has seen better days. So....
While we were at a flea market in Youngstown earlier in the week, Mike spotted another bike that we instantly knew would be a much better fit for "Little Dude" (Mike's affectionate name he has called Miles since birth.) We made a quick purchase and off we went. We were so excited for Miles to try it out.
Well Monday night Miles and Kate came for dinner. The reaction from Miles was priceless. He was so excited that he and Mike went straight outside to try it out. He was a natural. He informed us too that blue was his favorite color and that the flames painted on the bike made him go faster. Unfortunately the photo below is a bit blurry, but you get the idea of the joy and determination in this little guy. I am thinking those training wheels will be coming off sooner than we think. Oh the joy you get from riding a bike.
