Guess Who Finally Learned to Ride His Trike?

Our brand new three year old, that's who!

Not only that, but he went from barely peddling to going nearly a half mile with only the occasional push when he slowed down too much. I'm very thrilled; it wasn't much fun trying to push him around on this sucker. I totally get why people buy those dorky looking trikes with the handle on the back. Clearly, looks are not everything!

I love, love how empty the streets are here. I was able to let Oscar tool down the middle of the road pretty much the entire time he was riding. Every so often we'd have to move over for a golf cart or slow-moving car, but it wasn't often. I did keep him off the road that leads right off-base; it's the busiest one, and the only one that actually looks like it's made for cars not pedestrians. That one has a really wide sidewalk, so it worked out okay for him.

Also, just thought I'd throw up the Lightning McQueen cake Oliver and I came together on. We are pretty proud of it. He did the carving, I did most of the decorating (due to him getting called into work), and Oscar absolutely loved it.

It did look a little freaky after we cut into it:

Hooray for Oscar! Now you'll never keep up w/ him!

You guys did an awesome job on the cake. It is so cute although gotta agree w/ you assessment of the cut cake. Those eyes though. They're something else.

Happy birthday buddy! What a great cake. However, I do have to agree with the freaky cut cake comment. :)
How nice to have level (& empty) streets for bike riding. My boys would be in heaven.
