Last Friday, we trucked down to Onion River Sports. Now Fiona is the proud owner of a red tricycle and bike helmet (pink with bunnies---she picked it out---might as well get used to them early!). And, naturally, it's been raining since Saturday morning. She did get to take it out Friday afternoon.
It has a basket in the front, which, as I suspected, is a big hit. She puts her "mail" in it or her wooden food. Yes, since it is raining and the bike is still pretty clean, we broke down and let her ride it in the house.
If she's not in a really happy mood, though, she gets frustrated because she doesn't have peddling quite down yet--especially combined with turning the handlebars.
