Last weekend we took Lillian and Claire to Target to pick out their very first bike helmets. I did not expect it to take nearly as long as it did for the girls to choose just the right helmet. I am pretty sure they tried on every single option available in their size before settling. A little later we headed to Grandma Pattie and Grandpa Jim's house where they had new bikes waiting for them. They were very excited since they had been asking constantly for "training wheels." They were a little slow to start and had trouble with the first push of the pedal to get going, but it didn't take long for them to become speed racers. By the next afternoon they were whizzing around the driveway. A few days later they looked like they have been riding for months. I am nervous to see them riding at the end of the summer. I don't think the training wheels will last long with these two daredevils.
