2 Wheelin' Mama

I woke up and had a plan on Friday. We need to get Ava off these training wheels. So all the bikes up.
She was pissed. She stomped and argued and went on and on.
I ignored it and we went to West Falmouth to the bike path. Unfortunately I didn't notice she has 2 tires on her 2 wheeled bike that were low. It was tough but I finally got her to quit bitching and give it a whirl.
SO we left to fill up the tires and get an ice cream to celebrate how good she was doing.
Oh it certainly helped that every person who passed us on the bike path gave her words of encouragement. Some people in this World are great.
So by the time we swung by Bonnie's house she was really to do this.
It didn't take long once we fixed the mushy wheel issue. She was confident and laughing at her mistakes. Before I knew it when i needed a break from running back and forth Olivia offered to help her.
She is now super proud of herself and the grin melts my heart. 
She took her bike to Dad's house but he doesn't have a ton of places to ride. We need to keep her rolling so she doesn't lose her confidence.
