The weather was beautiful today so we packed the car with two bikes, a trike and three children and we set off for our local Country Park. It's the perfect place to learn to ride a bike as there's lots of straight bits and it's mostly flat.
Firstly, a pep talk from dad. Let's hope it works.
And we're off!
|Oops! Daddy let go.|
|No help needed here.|
|No pictures please!|
My oldest and youngest boys were my responsibility today while hubby took on the back breaking task of holding on to that bike. He wasn't allowed to let go as Ethan would panic so, for today, he held on to it. We did have to take a few breaks from all that hard work.

Can't break for too long though; must get back to the task in hand. Ethan is doing really well too. He just needs a bit more confidence and then he'll be off.
Time for another break before heading back, and who can blame him with that view? I sometimes forget how beautiful my local area is.
Finally, the best bit.
Do you think the children look a bit cold though?
There's just enough time for some fun in the park before we go home.
|Just pretend we're on a beach in the sun....|
I have heard a whisper about an Indian Summer..... Hmmm, I'll believe it when I see it!
