Gabe's 1st Bicycle

This week brought a very special delivery!  The generous people who come together at the Kenowa Ambucs purchased, put together, and presented Gabe with his first bicycle.  It is an Amtryke hand and foot pedal tricycle fitted specifically to his size and current need. They also brought him a helmet to wear when he is keeping up with his siblings on their bikes :)  

He was not sure what he thought at first, but warmed up to sitting on it quickly.  When he is buckled to his seat and strapped into his pedals he will be able to practice moving forward with his foot motion, arm motion, or both.  Kevin and I will also be able to help steer using the push bar.

This is an amazing gift.  We feel very blessed and appreciate the friends at Ambucs who made this a possibility for Gabe, and work all year to provide similar bikes to many other families as well.  

Hopefully by the September 22nd Stroll N' Roll  Gabe will be ready to roll with his buddies instead of stroll{er}ing with mama!

{side note: the summer is hot and the plants are dry, but the color focus on these photos is deceiving.  Kevin has actually been working diligently to keep our grass lovely shade of green and the bike has bright primary colors.  we will have to get an action shot soon with full color}


Since Gibson was napping Gabe finally had a chance to try out his superpowers with the Spidey costume.  He thinks Spiderman should roar!  He tried and tried to get a reaction from Gavin and Anne Hope, but they would not let anything distract them from their precious screen time.  But, he had me all tangled up in his adorable web.
