Mini bike

Someone named Connor is finally tall enough to reach the foot pegs on the mini bike, and is better able to control it, so can FINALLY take a spin around the yard by himself! His legs aren't quite long enough to do a real great job of catching himself if he tips, so Dan still ran along next to him until he got his groove, then stood in the middle of the yard while Connor rode circles around him.

For the past almost two years (this summer will be the full two years), Connor has been DYING to ride the mini bike. He's the only one of the kids that isn't intimidated by it, but because he was so young/small when we got it, he's the only one that hasn't had a real chance to attempt riding it. I'm not sure there's much in life that Connor IS intimidated by, but the mini bike definately isn't on that list!

Of course, because he's so fearless, he terrified me and made me laugh all at the same time while I was watching he and Dan. After a few slow turns around the yard, Connor suddenly gunned the thing and sped off, laughing hysterically and shouting, "Bet you can't catch me!!!!!!!!" Dan took off at a full sprint after him while my brain alternated between panic and hysterical laughter. I'll tell you now, this child will NOT be owning a muscle car or a motorcycle while he lives under my roof because he's a fearless little adrenaline junky and I don't think I could handle the stress...
