Wordless Wednesday – First Bike Ride


Olivia’s First Bike Ride
Last spring, I bought Olivia her first bike. She was thrilled… until she wasn’t. After a little tip over, (okay she took off on it at the store and crashed into a display,) she got scared and decided she wasn’t quite ready for riding a bike.

All spring and summer I tried to coax her onto her bike. She would try, but within seconds she would get scared and get off.

But this past weekend, on a very spring-like afternoon, Olivia asked to go for a bike ride! YAY!!!

What a difference a year can make. Olivia had a wonderful time and even got back up after a little crash. I am so excited for her!


What is Your Weekly Photo?

Mom Bloggers (and Dad Bloggers too!) post a photo on your site, link up and find others… Wordless Wednesday is tons of fun. (And I know it says “wordless” but I usually just can’t bear to not write anything! If I had created it, I probably would have named it something different! LOL So feel to link up your word-full or word-less Wednesday photos!)

Leave the URL to your photo (clearly mine are never truly “wordless”) and then visit others!

Here is a thumbnail linky:

Thanks to Uisce for creating Wordless Wednesday.

    Good for her! Sometimes kids just need to grow a bit before trying something new. My son recently started learning how to use a scooter. Now that he’s use to movement, we’ll try riding a bike this summer

    So cool! My dd6 finally decided to tackle learning to ride a biker. She’s been riding our home-built striders. When she realized she couldn’t race with the other kids, then she wanted to learn to ride a bike.
