Bikerman saves the day!

As you know from a previous post, Eric loves his Bikerman costume (as he calls it). We took a bike ride to the park with Kyli and her mom and brother today. Eric became extremely confident and was going so fast, that I couldn't keep up with him at a jog. However, he took a big spill, and then Kyli was right next to him and ran over his arm. It was a little traumatic for a few minutes. Eric was sobbing, but poor Kyli was sobbing just as hard because "I ran over him". It was so pitiful. Eric's hand is a little sore where he was run over, but he only has a couple of scratches on his arm and side. His right knee pad is totally scuffed as is his right elbow pad. I can only imagine what he would have looked like without them. Yeah for Bikerman gear!

We spent the afternoon with Kyli also in her pool. She has an above ground 3.5 foot pool. That is the perfect size for the kiddos. They can just barely touch, but at least they can, and it helps them move around. They had a blast!

Thank goodness for knee pads and elbow pads! I am so glad Eric didn't get hurt falling off his bike (with the exception of his hand). I am also glad he decided to get back on his bike and ride it after the accident. :) He is a very brave little boy! Both of your stories are very cute and I enjoyed reading them. mimi
