go by bike
here are some shots from our afternoon bike adventure. isa is a biking machine lately and we are all enjoying it! she decided to ride her kazam bike today, which is pretty fun to watch, and easier for her to ride longer distances. she reminds me of a bmx biker (lord help us) as she puts her feet up and rides for long stretches or flies down hills or does zig zags along the wider stretches of sidewalk. she biked about 2 miles today with nary a complaint, which is a nice change as well. we're trying to decide whether to upgrade her to a bigger pedal bike, as the hand me downs we have are pretty small for her (so says the cycling expert in the house) and maybe try a trail-a-bike as well. as you could imagine, daddy is pretty excited about her being on two wheels with him now.
for her part, sylvi is happy to pedal the tricycle around the driveway and run along with isa when we venture out. even though it's resulted in many scraped knees lately, it's really fun to watch sylvi run at full speed chasing her sister down the sidewalk! i am guessing it won't be long before they both leave us in the dust.
assuming we can get it to work properly, we have a video (thanks to daddy's phone) of isa zooming down her favorite little hill. there was definitely some cringing on my part, but she clearly had it under control!
