After a short stint on a pedal-less bike Michael was eager to try to ride a "real bike". One evening Chris and Uncle Craig took Michael to Value Village (the thrift store) and came home having spent $5 on a pink and white (where the pink had faded) bike with purple tassels and purple pedals.
First thing the next morning Michael wanted to try to ride his new bike. After making him sit still for a few bites of breakfast he was released to his new bike. In the moments it took me to find the camera and grab Joshua, Michael had it all figured out. Craig and I heard him shout "I can do it! I can do it! I can ride a bike!" as he wobbled up and down the block. Here is the evidence with some commentary from the bystanders.
