...riding his bike...

Gabe started riding bikes on Thursday. As soon as Steve got home, they put together his new green bike. He had a balance bike, but honestly has NEVER shown any interest in doing anything other than sitting on it. He was finally ready and kept asking for when we could practice riding real bikes.

Steve and he started out on the driveway. He was ever so patient and supportive. It was one of those moments where you fall deeper in love with your spouse. I was just so proud of how he helped Gabe. He pedaled ever so slowly up and down the driveway, with Steve inches away for the rest of the evening. 

The next morning, they were out by 650 and rode until Steve left for work. I think took the role of walking up and down with him. He had it mastered by the time Steve left for work. He spent every spare moment on Friday and Saturday riding and riding. We finally moved to the patio on Friday afternoon, to get out of the 90 degree heat. He has ridden constantly and adorns his helmet as soon as he wakes up. 



  1. Aww, what excitement over the bike! Surely it has made for early & easy bedtimes since I'm sure he is exhausted each evening!
