Big Girl Bike

Marlie has been too big for her tricycle for a while now, but Bryan didn't want me to buy her a bike while he was gone. I agreed to let him buy her one as a homecoming gift from him. A few days after he got back, the 2 of them went one afternoon to pick her out a "big girl bike". The bike they came home with was actually a size up from what I was expecting him to buy, but she is doing great on it. She can climb on and off by herself and loves going for bike rides around the neighborhood in the evening.
