In Training

Simon is "in training" for the Big Wheel 500 to be held in THIS Saturday! I love that his "training" is doing something he loves to do anyway. He's really excited about it. I hope it doesn't rain!

All loaded up and ready to go. Ben had to take his tricycle along too. These pics are from a couple weeks ago. We went last night too - and there was competition there! We had to talk Simon into asking them to race. He did really well. His only problem is waving to us and giving us thumbs up at the end! :)

Ben likes to "race" with Simon. His legs aren't long enough for the Big Wheel...yet! Simon always wins. Poor Benny. He doesn't mind too much, not yet anyway!

All Talon wanted to do was jump in this puddle. He actually screamed and threw himself on the ground when I tried to get him away from it to go to the park. The PARK Talon! It's much better than this muddy old puddle. Apparently not to him though.

Seriously, I've never seen a kid pedal like Simon so in my opinion...he has a good chance! He'll definitely have fun, that's for sure.

Photos from the big day coming soon. I promise!
