Little Boys and Red Christmas Toys

Our family was blessed to be able to spend the day together for Christmas. While are homes are separated by 200 miles of pavement, we met in the middle in Sacramento at the home of my sister and brother in law, Christine and Tim for family, fun, food and of course presents!

As always, we ate way to many appetizers before a huge lunch and all needed a nap. But naps would have to wait. The tree was busting with pretty wrapped boxes and two little boys - Clayton and his cousin Trevor - had may surprises waiting for them.

The many surprises were topped off by the grand finale located in the front yard and not under the tree.  The two red Radio Flyer tricycles that Grandma and Grandpa (who are know as Ava and Avo in our Portuguese family) were very eager to present to their grandsons. And boy were they a hit!

Trevor is three and a touch taller than Clayton so his legs reached the pedals with no problems. Clayton on the other hand is weeks shy of turning two and still can't reach the pedals. But that did not stop him. He balanced himself and used his toes for pushing. He had lots of help to as you can see.

Of course no new bicycle event would be complete without a fall. Clayton has no fear and took a corner and went down. He cried and has a little road rash on the side of his face but he got right back on in a matter of minutes. We have added a helmet to the shopping list this week.

It was a beautiful day; the kind the memories are made from. I'm so blessed they are our memories. Thanks for reading! ~mrs. c
