Learning to Ride a Bike

Amelia tried out her new bicycle for the first time on Father's Day.  The bike has built in training wheels, of course, but I was still surprised when she hopped on and started pedaling away all by herself.  Her legs got tired of pedaling pretty quickly - it must be harder to pedal a bike than a tricycle - so Ben had to give her a few pushes to get started again.  And I think the bike might be a little bit big for her, even though Ben lowered the seat as far as it would go.  But she's been eating like a horse lately, so I expect she's going through a growth spurt, and it won't be long before the bike is just the right size.

She rode up and down the sidewalk once, and then decided to get back on her scooter.  I think the scooter is always going to be more popular than the bike.
