I'm not making this stuff up, people....

All week long Austin has been asking to get his training wheels off. I sort of dismissed him thinking, yeah, right buddy!

But when Daddy came home tonight, Austin ran up and asked, "Now, Daddy? Now, can I finally have my training wheels off?"

Daddy acquiesced.

And in the time it took me to get my camera, less than 30 seconds. Austin had taught himself how to ride a bike...with no training wheels! Gary didn't even get that chase your kid down the street while holding onto the back of his seat and then let him go moment that all Mom and Dad's dream about.

In about a two minutes Austin was literally zooming up and down the street.







Things were a little more difficult for Logan. But by nightfall, he had a really good grasp of the bike, too. It's just now too dark to film. I know - then they should be inside, right? But Logan, really, really wanted to try one more time. And Daddy just couldn't say "no!"

OMG - unbelievable!! They're ONLY 3 years old - Austin looks as if he's been doing this all his life. What are those two going to do next?? You guys are always surprising Nonnie with something. Guess that's part of why I love you so much.

that is so crazy! I know a 6 yr old who can't ride without training wheels. I think you may have a genius on your hands!

That is unbelieveable!!!! HA!! Riding bikes before potty trained!! Who has time to use the potty?? These boys are olympians in training.

Way to go Austin! I couldn't believe it. Gary did such a great job with Logan. At least he let him hold onto the back! And, why should they be inside?? That is what summer time is all about.
