Kyrie has been talking about getting a bike for about 6 months now, so we decided it was time to give in and get her one. She picked out a pretty purple princess bike from Walmart. Unfortunately it was short lived because for some reason, she simply couldn't ride it! Then a few weeks ago when we spent the 4th at Jim's parents, they had a "Kyrie size" bike and she tried and tried to ride that with no luck either! We started looking into "nice" (read expensive) bikes and decided maybe that would make a difference. In the mean time, we found one used here in town for $15.00 and decided that was worth a shot. Nope! No luck with that one either!!! I was beginning to think she was just that un-coordinated or something, but Saturday, I was garage sale-ing and Jim had saw a few small bikes at a garage sale a few blocks away and said if it was smaller than the one she had to go ahead and get it.
So I did, it was a boys bike but we figured Trey would be able to use it in a few years anyway.
It didn't have training wheels but I decided to let Kyrie try it out with me holding onto the seat. She did great! Acted like it was no big deal! So we took a trip to Walmart and got a new set of training wheels and off she went!
Now the problem is she wants to ride it 24-7!
We also really lucked out at another garage sale last week - found this bicycle infant seat for $3.00 ($40.00 at walmart) and infant size helmet for $0.50! Trey loves to go riding!
