The Boy Who Could Ride!

Today our four year old son came up to my husband and I and asked if we would take his training wheels off of his bike. Caden told us that he wanted to be a big boy like Logan and doesn't need his training wheels anymore. I must tell you that he has never been interested in riding his bike since we introduced him to the Razor scooter. His poor bike has sat on the side of the house for months without even a glance in it's direction. Bryan and I thought about it for a little while and decided that if he wanted them off then we would take them off. As soon as the training wheels came off he immediately jumped on the bike and was ready to go. We had to instruct him for a total of five minutes and he was off riding like he has been riding for years. I have never seen a kid pick up riding a bike that fast. It took Logan at least a few days and he was five years old not four. Here are a few pictures of Caden's first riding experience with no training wheels.

And he's off!
