Brayden's New Big Boy Bike!

Brayden finally started showing an interest in learning how to ride a bike this week! Since he's too big for the tricycle, we decided he needed a "real" bike to ride around the neighborhood. After 2 days of searching local bike shops, Toys R Us, &, we finally decided to spend a little extra money and buy him a good quality bike that should hopefully last another 3+ years. Thanks to Grandma & Grandpa Macnab for contributing to Brayden's early birthday present!

Brayden sporting his new helmet! He was waiting so patiently for us to take him outside to ride his new bike for the first time.
Off he goes! He's had a few minor crashes, but he gets right back up on his bike!

He's mastered all of the sidewalks in the neighborhood, which I think shows how well he's able to steer his new bike. I can't believe that a week ago he didn't even know how to ride a bike and now he's riding all over the neighborhood! We've also taken him on the old logging road behind our house a few times (it's paved for bikes and pedestrians). I love having a safe, car-less area for him to ride his bike!
