Sophie being her cute, sassy little self
But finally the big day came... BIKE day! It was pretty thrilling.
How does one explain the emotions that a little boy goes through on a day like this? He was extremely excited, but he waited patiently and boy was it worth it!Shortly after learning how to ride, Weston began telling me that he thought he should keep the bike. He must have repeated the phrase "keep bike" 20 times! It was cute. At one point he fell and began to cry. We had him hop right back up and keep riding, and of course turned it into a little life lesson moment. (How do you resist an opportunity like that, cliche though it may be?)Sophie got jealous and wanted to try and ride on her little tricycle that is still way too big for her... we gave it a whirl but after a few minutes I gave up on that idea and just pulled her around in the wagon with Weston following along...Weston was so sad and disappointed when it was time to be done that Jason busted out some special novelty firework items to help distract him.The firework trick worked like a charm, as usual. (thankfully!)
