I Had Another Post In Mind....But This Is Way More Fun!!










After lunch...
We promised Miss V, that she could try and ride her "Big" bike again...
We had given her a Barbie helmet for her birthday, and she was itching to try it out!
She had had problems with the pedals...and the brakes...
The tricycles at daycare don't have any brakes,
SO...whenever she stopped pedalling, and pushed her feet back...she braked!!
With a lot of help...and determination from her Papa...

                                    SHE DID IT!!!
 All the way back to the house...she pedalled happily!!

                                   Good job Miss V!!!

She is napping now...and then we will go out for another ride!!

Hope you are all having a great day...
Lovely weather here...partly cloudy...breezy...

I have a new recipe that I made today for dinner tonight!!
From my Canadian Living magazine... 

          Smoky Pork Bolognese Sauce...
              Served over Rigatoni Pasta...
                 With Ceasar Salad...
             Yummy!!
Will take pictures...for another post on Dinners...
Hope it is good...:o) 

Have a great rest of your day!!
What were you up to???

                      Cheers!  :o)

  1. Great fun and fantastic she has mastered the art of pedalling. It is a very complex procedure and demands great timing with downward pressure on one pedal and then the other ~ guess she mastered that a while ago but very clever to learn to do the opposite for braking . . Good tuition from driving instructor Papa.
    Peter has Jon's old tricycle which has pedal propulsion on the front wheel/ He has not got the technique yet, probably because he can't reach fully the maximum down on the pedal and does not understand yet that the other foot has to be relaxed and not push down. All in good time and then the braking . . . :)
    Tomorrow we are all going to our local airport to watch the planes taking off and landing, He will be wowed as to how big and noisy they are , , :)

  8. Learning to ride your first big bike is a big thing isn't it! Sounds as though Miss V is doing very well with it though. She looks very cute on her bike and the helmet is sure to be helping her along too!! xx

  10. Just enjoyed looking at your beautiful begonias from yesterday and love today's blog with the little cutie and her papa. She'll always hold both of you close to her heart, especially because these are her formative years. Gosh, I'm sounding just like a retired teacher! :) Catching up with stuff today, did another cultural day yesterday at Stratford. Take care and enjoy...

  15. Yay Vivian! She looks so cute in pink on her pink bike. Our big E (almost 5) has a pedal bike minus the training wheels that he's mastering quite well and little E has his pedal-less Strider. I'm having a quiet at-home day today. :) Starting to clear off and be hot and humid. :)
