Here’s my girl, riding away! Such freedom, learning to ride a bike all by oneself! Oh my! Can you believe it? She knows how to ride a bike, all by herself. This was the first day that she really just took off. She’s done it before, but she did it over and over and over again on this day. Starting and stopping all by herself. Even slightly falling and catching herself. A baseball diamond is the perfect spot! Round and round you go, nothing to stop you, a relatively soft surface in case you fall, and of course your family standing all around you, cheering, chasing, and helping. And with the Boulder Flatirons as a back drop, how could you not feel happy? And who needs shoes? Hmmddiddydooo. Not this girl.
(The color is very different amongst these photos as the evening that we did this, it went from cloudy and overcast and slightly cool, to very sunny and hot. That’s Colorado for you!)
