When our temporary storage arrived last week, we had just a few toys, including their bikes/trikes/scooters delivered. The kids were over the moon because it had been months since they had thought about these things. It was more like a delayed Christmas, except for easier on the budget!
Hunter immediately clung on to the tricycle.
A tricycle he had never even been on because he was still a tad too small last summer. He continued to load and unload different things into the back carrier, until he settled on a handful of cereal.
Seriously. And when he tipped over one time he just about lost it. Some cereal fell to the cement. There were tears, hands were thrown up in the air, I actually heard an exasperated, “Oh man!” He was comical.
At first it took some time to figure the trike out. He could pedal backwards just fine, but he had troubles going forward which I remembered happened to Hallie as well. But that didn’t stop him from making the rounds on the basketball court, pushing along with his feet. He would periodically check in his little carrier to make sure nothing had fallen out.
Hallie was content on the plasma car, which is typically Hunter’s favorite and she enjoyed ramming the back of his trike as she came up behind him. She would get the desired reaction every time!
We’re just so happy the weather has been so beautiful so we can spend this time outside. I know summer is just around the corner and it won’t be pretty. So we’re taking advantage of bike riding weather in February!
