E took the new wheels out for a spin tonight for the first time since her birthday. We’ve been gone the last few weekends, and the weeknights between have just been too hot to hang out on asphalt. She did a great job, pedaling around with some friends – it’s a big step up from the trike, but long overdue with those long legs.
Here’s hoping she gets several good years out of these snazzy wheels, and I can stop the quick intake of breath every time she picks up some speed or turns a corner. That trike was boring, and too small…but oh…so…sturdy.
