Born to ride

We had absolutely wonderful weather this weekend. And we took full advantage of it. Bob biked Little Elvis over to a local park to play one morning, and we spent lots of time outside in the backyard just enjoying the weather.

We also brought out Little Elvis' tricycle that we bought for him when he was 3 or 4 months old. Yes, we are THOSE parents. I found a great deal on craigslist and was able to respond before anyone else.
At first, Little Elvis wasn't too sure about this new ride. He's never been much of a ride-on toy boy. He prefers to push ride-on toys and will happily push other kids.

But he began to like the feel of the wind... maybe more of a light breeze... through his helmet.He also wasn't so sure about putting his feet on the pedals.
But even got the hang of that by the end of the first block.

Poor Daddy had to tell Mommy this would be the money shot, and still I managed to mess it up. I know the flash was on, but it still turned out fuzzy. You can still see how proud he is.

And he has refused to sit on the trike with his feet on the pedals since that day, preferring instead to push it around with the handle.

Also, for anyone wondering, he got into the Vaseline yesterday while I was showering. He really liked how squishy it felt between his fingers. The tub was in the medicine cabinet over the toilet. Today he just brought down some magnetic letters and numbers that were on a shelf way over his head... at least it used to be.

Yeah, sounds familiar...but Vicks rub. He smelled very sick for a few days.

Cute trike...cute boy!

Oh my!!! I must admit - I chuckled since last week Madigan got into the diaper cream.

Happy riding!

So cute! Isabella has the Radio Flyer tricycle with the "parent handle" and she loves it.

Oh, cleaning up that vaseline must have been...ugh! frustrating!

but, I imagine his little hands were very soft after that!
