And, we had an extra surprise in store for Jack! Not only would daddy take him for a ride on his bike, but daddy had set up his bike with what is probably the coolest invention ever! A Buddy Bar! I couldn't wait to see them riding, but I missed them taking off because I had run next door to visit Grammy while I was waiting for him to set it up (at Sam's insistence- he loves Grammy!). As soon as I got back and realized they had already left, I ran into my house to grab my camera and then ran back outside to wait for them to come back around the block. While we waited, Sam practiced his walking (something that he had been able to do quite well for some time, but still only did when we forced him to... I'm pretty sure he thought it was a game).
(oh yeah, and my mom was there, too!)
And then Sam got sooo excited when he saw who was coming!
(isn't the Buddy Bar the coolest thing ever?!)
Jack LOVED riding his bike right behind daddy! He was so excited and he was obviously so proud of himself! I, of course, was proud of him, too- even though it really hit me how much he's growing up!
They went around the block about 4 times, and in just those four times I got 113 pictures, so you can imagine how excited I was for Jack and how proud I was of him!
Sam was proud, too! He was so excited to see Jack and daddy every time they came back around!
So yeah, the bike was definitely the right choice in birthday gifts for our Jack Jack! The Buddy Bar, too!
