Proud to be Pedalling

We love hand-me downs!! JiaLi has just begun pedalling and she is so proud! The bike she is riding is one that was given to us from a neighbor who purchased it at a yard sale for 25 cents. Now, there are no brakes and if you pedal backward, the bike will actually move in a backward direction. But JiaLi loves it, and Edward enjoyed it prior to JiaLi. The helmet she is wearing is also from Edward--yes it is an alien helmet. She is not always thrilled about wearing it--she would much rather wear the flower one that Jenise has but that is just too big and when I tell her she can't ride unless she has a helmet, she is very willing. She cracks us up with the whole riding a bike thing. No matter who is walking by, even a stranger, she yells "look at me, I'm doing it". So proud!! Of course riding the red "bike"(bottom picture-she is pushing up the hill) down our semi-steep hilly driveway also provides a squeal:)
