Abbie has been telling us for a while now that she knows how to ride without the training wheels. She explained, " I dreamed about it, all I have to do is stay balanced and pedal." Simple enough! So Ben took off her training wheels on Saturday and we spent about ten minutes working with her. She then decided it was harder than she thought. We tried again on Sunday. It only took a few minutes and she was off all by herself! Grandpa Johnson and Aunt Alex stopped by so she was showing them her new found skills when she fell over. (her first fall, not even a scratch, just a scare) So we were done for the day. Monday we went out, but she was still nervous from the fall. I offered her a piece of candy if she rode down the driveway by herself, DONE!! She was off and running! Next was to the mailbox and back and from there it was endless running up and down the street beside her! (she still isn't sure about turning all by herself) We can't wait to go for a family bike ride!!! We are so proud of her... she was so awesome and easy to teach! GO ABBIE!!!!!
Ben and I met while going to school in Provo, UT. We dated for a year and were married on Feb 16th 2002 in the St George Temple. Seven years later we have four beautiful daughters, Abigail, Isabelle, and twins: Olivia and Emily.
