Ethan wasn’t old enough last summer for us to use the bike seat that we bought from someone. This year he was finally big enough to use it! We didn’t realize that we would have other issues with size… his helmet. We bought the smallest helmet the store had, and the salesman said it would work for a one year old. It was too big. We even borrowed one from some friends who have a boy 3 months older than Ethan, and it was too big. So, we tried going anyway. Sadly, the helmet kept falling over Ethan’s eyes even though he continually tried pushing it back. Needless to say, it was a short bike ride.
We used a helmet that fit a little better on our next bike outing and after not being gone long, Gary’s tire went flat. He pumped it up just before we left, so it needed a new tube. Once again, our bike ride was cut short.
