One of Leyton's favorite activities right now is riding his bicycle. I can't tell you how happy I am that I got a bike so I can ride around with him. This weekend we had lots of opportunities to ride around. We went to a birthday party on Saturday at a place called Safetyville here in Sacramento. I will have to remember this place when Leyton is older. It is essentially a little version of Sacramento and you can just bike around to your hearts content.
Since Leyton's Mommy isn't the sharpest tool in the shed I missed the part on the invitation that said to bring bikes. So, we used what was available to us and I absolutely love this picture for some reason.
It took him a while to get use scooter type of bike but once he did he LOVED it.
On Sunday after I ride to the park I decided to take Leyton on an even longer ride and we headed out to Nugget. The ride is just shy of a mile each way and my little man did SO GOOD! At times he said, "This is tough Mommy." Even though, he just kept going and going. I was so proud of my little bike rider.
Right now Leyton has a Strider and man I am a huge advocate. He is learning to balance to well and I don't forsee that we will need training wheels in the future. He's been riding it since about 2.5 years old and happily added a bell to the bike yesterday.
I can't wait for a summer filled with bike rides with my boy.
