Bye Bye Training Wheels

The girls have been riding their bikes after school every day since the weather has been so nice.  Both the girls have been on training wheels and Etta randomly asked if her little wheels could be taken off.  Of course Eric was at work so I called and asked him if he wanted to come home early and do this as a family.  After breaking out some tools and taking off the training wheels.  Eric held on to Etta for a second to get her going and then didn't need his help again.

Eric getting Etta going for the first time.

Look, all by herself!

Turned around at the mail box.
Look at this smile!
She's had lots of two wheeled practice the last two weeks and can now get started by herself, turn without too many problems (sharp turns are still a little scary), and she even goes up and down our inclined driveway.  Chloe has been asking for her training wheels to be taken off since Etta is having so much fun on two wheels.  Instead of taking hers off we let her try Etta bike.  Let's just say we'll have to wait a few more months.
