Its Almost Spring!

Now that we are getting a few days here and there where the temp gets up to a balmy 40 (ish) degrees, I am trying my darndest to get these kids out of the house a little. And with Ash being almost 1.5 and our yard being fence-less (I have no idea how to spell that) I find myself playing outside a lot too. I have just decided my main goal for now is to get the big boys riding real bikes with no training wheels. We've actually made a lot of progress from last fall, when Dax would yell and cry "WHY would you want me to do that?! " very dramatically every time I tried to get him riding his bike before daddy came home. You would think I was asking him to jump out of a plane or swim with the sharks. I was very encouraged today when I asked and he was actually excited to don all of his 'protective gear'- as he calls it-and give it a whirl. We rode around for quite a while and he seems to be getting more comfortable all the time. He even asked to try every day until he got it if we could just go in the house for now. (Don't worry, Hayes just thought the size-3 Robin costume would be perfect bike-riding attire. :)
