    Today's question:

    When did you last ride a bike?

    Wow...can't believe that Mac is already on a big boy bike!!

    Last time I tried to ride a bike I found out that bicycle seats are much smaller than they used to be :) That was about 15 years ago...

    NonnieKelly: Oh, Mac is most certainly not yet on a big-boy bike. Bubby just got a new one for his birthday so that one awaits Mac being able to graduate from the trike (which he's not yet figured out how to pedal), and Bubby likes to give him tastes of it now and then.

    Too funny on the shrinking size of bicycle seats. I've noticed the very same thing! :-D

    Mac's little dangling feet are so cute!

    I got a new bike last spring, but put it away in November. I'm a fair weather bike rider.

    Those brothers are so cute together!

    Any bike riding I did was so far in the past (at least 50 years ago) that I've forgotten just when it was. It would be suicide to try it these days.

    Such sweet pictures. Nothing like brotherly love but I just can't get over how quickly they are growing!

    Now as for bike riding - do you see my big grin? The kids got me a bike for Christmas! I have been wanting one so badly so that Amara and I could ride together. Unfortunately it hasn't arrived yet but we are ready for it when it does! I can't wait!!! I am one very lucky Grandma!

    Do stationary bikes count? If not, it's been at least a score of years. I'd love one of those recumbent bikes, but they cost a small fortune.

    Love these! They both look so serious.....the little one definitely gets that this is Big Time Boy Stuff!
    I keep my bike in Ventura to ride at the beach house.......such a bike friendly community and it gets me everywhere since we don't keep a car there anymore!

    Cute pictures!! Last time I rode a bike was about ten years ago. Sadly.

    There's nothing like a big brother to look after you. Sweet pictures. I rode this past fall with my grandkids.
