Molly's New Bike

A couple years ago we were handed down a bike from a couple in our church.  It was their daughter's and she had outgrown it, so it became Molly's.  It has served it's purpose for getting her started riding a bike, however this poor bike has seen one too many hits from a car's bumper.  I am guilty of some of these slight taps.  So while my mom was visiting this past weekend we ventured out to get Molly a new bike. 

Seriously who knew how difficult it would be to find a nice bike without a bunch of junk on it!  I know I am like the anti-fun mom, but I am way too practical for Molly to get a Princess bike and in a year she doesn't like Princesses anymore.  Trust me, I am cool with you getting your kid a Princess bike, I just don't roll that way.  So we went to 3 different big stores, and finally Molly settled on one.  I mean she likes it, it's cute, and it fits her pretty well.  So off we were with this whole bike riding thing. 

I think it will take her a little bit to trust herself.  Her bike has training wheels, don't worry I am not that much of a no-fun person.  I did allow her to have training wheels, ha!  But this bike actually is legit, unlike the poor other bike that has seen many better days.  On the other bike she was used to leaning to maintain her balance, well now the new bike is fully balanced, yet she still leans.  It's pretty funny to watch her. 

Here are some pictures of her and her new bike...








and off she goes...
