You see my oldest daughter got her first bike for Christmas in 2005. LOL Yes you read that right 2005. So why is she just getting around in 2007 riding it.
Well errr Mommy lost the hardware pieces to the seat so it has sat in the garage for this long until I said last week… "almost two years is enough." My little girl WILL get to ride her bike. I went to find the correct piece but couldn't find it, so I had to buy her a whole new seat and they had them on clearance. The only thing it is black, but we are going to get some princess stickers to take care of that ;).
I had it all ready for her and surprised her Friday when she came home from Pre-K. Her facial expression was priceless when she saw her bicycle. She said mommy do I get to really ride it now. Yes my dear.. mommy is sooo sorry after two years you are finally getting to ride. She would stay on this bike morning, day and night she loves it so much. Here are some picts of her first time riding!
Also little sis had to join in on the fun too now that she gets to ride big sis's big wheels.
It takes me back to the times my brother and I use to run home from school and get on our bikes to go hang out with our friends. Our parents wouldn't see us till night fall. I would never let me girls do that now. Boy how times have changed 🙁

awww, that’s so cute that she was so excited. 🙂 great pics!
that’s soo amazing Jen – I hear you about the biking thing, I too used to come home and go off, not to be seen all day…on weekends it really WAS all day – I could be caught biking 4-5 miles away from home with out even blinking an eye (on busy 4 lane streets too).
In today’s world Aubrey is lucky to be allowed to go around the block! She loves riding her bike though! Zachary wants to ride HER bike, the big wheel is just “to baby like” for him! 🙂
Your kids are just TOO CUTE

i’ve left a million comments on your pictures at the girls site, but wanted to leave one here too. when did madisyn decide to grow up and turn into such a beauty! gosh jen, you’re terribly blessed to have both your girls. they are sweet, funny, adorable little things!
Yes and it’s so sad… I remember how awesome it felt to ride a bike around the neighborhood. Such freedom! Now we have to watch our kids so closely….
