Also back in May, we passed a family milestone: Jack's transition from tricycle to bicycle. We picked up the "Gravel Buster" bike in a box at T*get, and Scott showed his Super Dad side by being both willing and able to put the bike together with Jack's "assistance". I conveniently went for a walk by myself immediately after snapping this photo:
By the time I got back from my walk, Jack was ready to roll, complete with Lightening McQueen bike helmet and bell.
With a little help from Scott and a set of training wheels, Jack was riding down the driveway in no time. The Gravel Buster actually does a fair job of handling the terrain!
Later that week, Jack proudly donated his old trike to his day care. We had to get him a bigger helmet almost immediately, and I'm sure we'll be looking for a larger Gravel Buster next spring. Who knows: maybe by then we won't even need training wheels.
