Well, it was "Bike Day" at school today so we bought Heath a bike yesterday as a surprise! Although one afternoon was not enough for him to feel comfortable riding it, he was very excited about getting it and riding around the garage yesterday afternoon!
He is really loving Batman and Spiderman right now, although I have no idea how he really knows who they are other than maybe hearing other kids talk about them at school. He does get Spiderman and Batman fruit snacks and loves them...but other than that, he has never watched them on tv, so not sure why he likes them so much.
He got right on the bike and was ready to go somwhere. It was very cute and the bike fit him very well!
Daddy (and his helper, Pumpkin) tried to show Heath how to use the pedals to get himself around the garage. Heath preferred the Fred Flinstone foot method of manuevering around the garage...whatever works! He had a great time!
So, this is him after lunch all geared up with his Spiderman helmet and pads on (Grandma bought those!) riding around the garage. He loves his new bike a lot!
Well, when it was all said and done, he wanted to take his tricycle to school today. He still had to wear his helmet for safety! The police officer came to school and talked to them about bike safety and then they got to ride around the pavement and they were all given a packet of snack tickets. They had little stands with cookies and ice cream and snack foods and they could cash in their tickets for various items...very cute! He had a blast! When I picked him up, there were about 10 kids having a total melt down when I walked in (they had just come in from outside). I couldn't help myself but to laugh and feel sorry for Ms. Shannon as she was holding a little girl in her arms who was crying alligator tears. They must have all had a wonderful time outside. Heath was running around in circles smiling and laughing...he must have been too happy to cry! ;-)
