I got her the handlebar flower-shaped pinwheels with iridescent tassels, because it's her brother's hand-me-down bike.
I did not get her the pink princess bike horn, because it was obnoxiously loud.
She's asked for it at least 114 times since yesterday.
I really wanted her to be wearing the "old" helmet in these pictures, but it wasn't easily presenting itself so I put the "new" helmet on her. (If she'd been wearing the other one, her pictures of her first bike ride would match Sam's.)
She really needed mittens, which I got after I took this.
This is pretty much what I saw. She wanted me to "help" her, which meant pushing the bike so she could pedal without actually expending any effort.
She refused to smile.
"That's for basketball!" she told me.
But I got the grin.
("Sushi" being what the photographer told Sam's basketball team to say for the team picture.)
Not sure why I stuck my glove in front of the lens for this one.
She was actually yelling at me and getting off the bike. She was mad that I wasn't pushing. I didn't get a chance to re-take the shot.
This, of course, being not what we looked like most of the time. I considered trying to take a picture of our shadows while hunched over and pushing her, but I settled for this.
