biking, cousins, and summer fun!

It's the summer of bikes at our house. We've been trying to get Rhett more comfortable with his Strider bike, and he is loving it. This was the 4th of July bike parade (hence the pithy "decorations"). He was the slowest one, but he did the entire loop and scored a free day at the water park!
 Loving the glow sticks on the 4th of July. Rhett was obsessed with the fireworks and gave great commentary. 
 Cousins came to town! Rhett and Joanna snuggled together with the stuffies. 
A toddler-led Thomas story time, of course. 
 The crew! We had the best time and wished they could have stayed longer. 
 Rhett started swim lessons this week, and we're loving our new condo pool for extra practice. Dad makes the best teacher!
We stumbled on the greatest kids safety say (free bounce house, lunch, and coupons? yes please) and Rhett was super brave and climbed in the massive Army truck all on his own.
Strider races! I knew we had to sign up--how great would it be watching two-year-olds try to bike race? And it did not disappoint. They all got official race swag bags and everything. Note the official starting gates and course flags. It took a lot of coaxing to get everyone into position without crying. 

 In the zone! Rhett did awesome during practice but got a little scared for the real race. I went alongside him at his own pace, and he finished the course in both heats! 
 Will race for snacks. I guess this makes me an official Strider mom. We'll be back next year!
