early birthday gift

In 6 days my little girl will be 6 years old!

She has totally outgrown the bicycle we got her back in 2007.  
If you click on the link you can see how tiny she was when we bought it. 

Little Miss Layla informed us the other day that the block party was in a few days and she didn't have a bicycle to ride.  Awwwww...poor thing.  haha!   One of the fun things about the block party is that the street is blocked off and the kids can ride in the middle of the street.  

We were planning to get her a new bike all along so we just did it a week early!

As you can see she jumped right on and took off!  She loves her new bike!  She is looking forward to taking off those training wheels, but for now she is just getting comfortable on the bigger bike.  She told us it is much easier to pedal.   She had a hard time being squeezed onto a tiny tiny bike.

Below is a photo of her riding it during the block party on Saturday.  

She was so proud to show it off  :)

Gary and I each have bicycles.  I look forward to the day when the four of us can go on rides together!  I'm sure they will all ride fast & leave me in the dust, but then I can take pictures of them right?!

Nothing is more fun for a kid in the summer than a new bike! I'm sure she will have a ton of fun with it!
