Lola Learns To Ride a Bike

The Great Sphinx (Kagome) watches over the lessons

I've got a bike / You can ride it if you like / It's got a whistle a basket things that make it look good -Pink Floyd
This was Lola's 7th birthday present

A few years ago, the boys - Ian and Dakota- thought it would be funny to throw Mom's old tennis shoes up on the lamppost in front the house. Only, they weren't Mom's old tennis shoes. They were her ONLY tennis shoes.

I took a break, staring at nothing, feeling the wind

Work those (beautiful) glutes, Mr. Curry
Lola Bodie and Wolfgang watch as Dakota shows his skills

Dakota Wolf, Bodie and Wolfgang head back in with us. It was a beautiful day full of love, learning, laughter and nonsense.

This post made me smile! I have such fond memories of learning how to ride my bike. And I still love riding my bike, in fact I really miss riding the 13km I used to every day to get to work and back again! Which reminds me, thanks for your comments lately, they always cheer me up! And I have some good news, a job interview next week! Hoorah!

Looks like a gorgeous day. Did she master the bike? Carlie didn't get going on two wheels until she was 9 years old. My late bloomer.

Vashti said...

I love this post! What a fun way to spend the day! I cant wait until mine are big enough to learn to ride.
( Mr Curry has a great butt!!!) Haha!

Kurt said...

When you said "glutes" I was like "Yeah those look pretty well-defined" and then I realized those were his calves and that his glutes were something else and now I'm gay. So thanks.

Perfect day, indeed.

Sharon said...

Boys will be boys...sorry about the shoes! Do they know how to shimmy up a pole? Thanks for sharing these great photos...fun day:)

Maggie May said...

Holly- thanks, i think so too! we love her so much. she's a very funny quirkly cat.

Suzie= word! i'm so glad you have an interview. hope it's a job that would make you happy.

Shana- nope, not yet! it's gonna take her a while too, i can tell. but she's a trooper :)
