Maiden Voyage

Gavin taught himself to ride a two-wheeler yesterday and I didn't even see it happen.  He spend the afternoon at a friend's house, and that friend's bike didn't have training wheels. Gavin took it for a spin like he'd been doing it all his life.  My friend (the mom) shot a video to prove it.  Then, when Gavin got home, we took the training wheels off his own bike and he took off.

This was his very first two-wheeled ride on his own bike: 

This is when he showed Garry after work:

And today, despite the drenching rain pouring from the sky, Gavin rode his bike for almost an hour.

It's like Gavin has found his wings.  He loves to ride that bike!  He's fast and agile.  I'm sure he loves the wind on his face.  I just like to see his wide, wide smile.  That's pure happiness.
