Have I mentioned that Josh JUST learned to ride a bike?!  The boy seems to have no fear when it comes to his bike.  I can't seem to get him to watch a movie with even the most benign scary scene, but put him on a bike and he doesn't seem to know the word fear.

We are visiting the Bush's this weekend in Vernon (and, might I add, having a fabulous time!).  The Bush boys are always talking about the BMX track and the skate park so, of course, Josh just needs to go.  I must admit, I was quite nervous.  I didn't really know what to expect.  Bri usually takes on these situations. 

But Josh rocked it.  He knew what he wanted to do and what he didn't want to do (he didn't want to start the track from the "real" start line that was quite a steep drop).  And when he fell, he got right back up and kept going.  Mom is very impressed and very proud.  Way to go, Joshie!

And not to be outdone by a 4-year-old, this 40-year-old had to jump on a bike (that belongs to Evan, who is 8!) and have a go on the BMX track for the first time ever.

Note: In the video, I called the kid who passed me a 10-year-old.  He was actually only 7!

Way to go Joshie. I was sweating watching you go through the course! Also gotta love you encouraging mommy through the track too!

Totally amazing Joshie!!! We are so very proud of all you have learned this year, especially with your bike! Love you whole bunches, and give Aves and yourself a big hug from Nana OK?

That made me cry! Joshie is a big boy now, definitely. So proud of him. And so proud of mommy Yvette for making it around the track, too. hahaha
