Bike Riding Videos

I wanted to first explain the new blog background I chose. The boys & I are taking a road trip the first weekend of August to Kentucky for a family reunion. I am excited to go and see my mom along with other family members. The boys have been talking about our "trip to tuckey" ever since they talked about it with Jamison on Friday. So I felt this background fit pretty well for now.

Today Zak asked to have his training wheels taken off his bike! I think it had a lot to do with the little boy who lives across the street from us. He is about 3 months older than the boys and has been riding his 2-wheeler bike for a while now and is always telling the boys he can ride. Honestly, today we got very upset with the kid because he was pretty much making fun of Ryder for not being able to even pedal a bike! So Ben took the training wheels off, I grabbed the camera and this is what we got....

(the sound is pretty loud so you might want to turn the volume down or off)

This video I did freak out at the end because I thought he was doing a little too well and was heading straight for the road. I think if I had kept my mouth shut he may not have fallen over.

He did better than I thought he would and every time he fell he got right back up and wanted to try again. He would laugh many times when he fell. We are very proud of him!

Of course we couldn't leave Ryder out of the fun! He practiced on his bike for a little while, but once he gets too frustrated we suggest it is time for the scooter. I didn't get the camera out quick enough because by this time he had pretty much had enough. Poor guy is trying so hard though!
