She rode her bike for a good while and she did fairly well, I might add. Dad helped her out a lot, while I took care of Colton and visited with mom. We all had our camera's out taking pictures, like a couple of crazy people. Dad went as far as getting out his bike and riding around the driveway with her. Katie liked that idea and encouraged my dad to ride with her. If he rode his bike, she would ride hers right along with him. It was a sweet picture. He told me that he thought if she could see the way he was pedaling his bike, then she would understand better. It must of worked because she did pretty good. There was a time or two where she needed help and couldn't get it started or got in a tough spot. I guess she fell about 3 times. Thank goodness for her helmet and pads or I'd have one banged up little girl on my hands. Oh, she'd cry and carry on when she fell off, but it wouldn't be long before she was asking to go ride again. We all tried to encourage her to get back up on the bike and try again. I think it mostly hurt her feelings and made her mad. I know, if I get stuck on something and can't quite figure it out, I get frustrated and mad as well. One thing about it, I never give up and it looks like she doesn't either. Here are a few pictures I took today:
Katie's 1st bicycle
Papa John riding bikes with Katie
Grandma Jerry helping Katie along ~ and YES, it's a Barbie bicycle as well

Who ever put this video together did a fantastic job. Kudos! It got me a little excited and pumped. Finbaum stated tonight on FOX 6 Sports News that Bama is looking to have a great defensive team this year. I just hope we have a superb offensive team to go along with the defense. By the way, Saban reported that Deaderick is still doing good, but will not be playing this weekend. Honestly, I didn't expect him to anyway.
