New Bikes!!!!

We went camping for labor day (no pictures because my camera was having a bad case of operator error) with Uncle Brandon and his family and Zachary and Cameron had their bikes there to ride. Cameron has a bigger bike and Zac's was too small for him. Anyway all the bruises he had on his knees from hitting the handle bars convinced us it was time to upgrade to a bigger bike. Plus we felt it was time for the girls to get big girl bikes too. So we went shopping..

Zac is in heaven with the bigger bike. It has trick pegs and everything! More often than not when I can't find him he's off riding.

Keira can't figure out how to pedal just yet. But she tries. She keeps going back and forth from brake to go, brake to go. I'm sure she'll figure it out someday:)

Zoe hopped right on and off she went. She's pedaling that bike like she was born doing it. She was doing so well I didn't realize we didn't show her how to use the brake. The other day we walked up the street to the high school parking lot with my Aunt and her granddaughter and Zoe came flying towards us with big huge eyes and she kept going until she went headfirst into the stroller. Luckily nobody was hurt and we had a good laugh. And a lesson on braking.

We were going to wait until next spring for new bikes. I'm so glad we decided to get them now:)

Second Grade

I got behind. So I guess I'll play catch-up again......

Zachary started second grade this year. He absolutely loves it. I can't believe I have a child that old. Time flies. He has grown so tall he already comes up to my armpit.

I have to bribe him when I take his picture. He gives me his best and his funniest. Man I love this kid.
