Growing up too fast…

Posted by Sandra on June 2, 2009

Autumn got her “big girl bike” last week, and after only an hour on it, she was a pro.  And we can’t get her off of it!

She could’ve gotten it last summer, but she was so attached to her Dora Bike (okay, it’s a regular tricycle that she put Dora stickers allllllllll over) that she didn’t want a big bike… but we had an opportunity to get a great hand-me-down from a friend and convinced her that she’d love it.  And we were right.  We “girlied” it up with a Princess basket and tassles and a pink bell, and Autumn is going to hunt for Princess stickers to put on it.  She’s growing up too fast!

And really, what’s more fun than chasing your friends through the neighbor’s sprinkler??

And Ayla was enjoying the “rain” too… but she stopped to take a break:

Ah, isn’t summertime grand?

    Precious! You take such great pictures. Some people just snap pics…but yours capture the moment perfectly.

    Those are great pictures, but where is her helmet?

      We don’t do any mountain biking or professional racing, so we don’t need helmets here! We’re just big rebels, I guess… I never had one, my whole family, thousands of them, lived riding their bikes without them, and so have my other kids for many many years, so we’re not going to start now…

    Wow- the pure beauty in the anticipation and fulfillment of that water across the face… sublime. ❤

    Btw (I am sure you know this), your children are gorgeous- their light shines from within and radiates without hindrance!!!

    Superb photos, too. A pleasure to view. Thank you. 🙂
