DIY Strider Bike


Last summer some friends of ours had us over and their little boy who was just barely two at the time was zoomin around on a little bike without pedals...I was curious.  They told us all about the strider helps kids develop balance rather than relying on training wheels and then hopefully they can go right to a pedal bike.  I was skeptical and definitely not willing to fork over the cash for one..then the thought came to me why couldn't I just take the pedals off a regular little bike?  This is where You Tube comes in...

I did mine all by myself fairly quickly and  I proud of this? umm YES!

  My husband cut off the bolts that stuck out either side of the back tire and sanded them down... little bare legs and bolts are a bad idea.

 He loves his new "bite" (bike) and feels so proud that he can go on the gravel as fast as his big sisters.

  It did take him a little while to get used to the idea but after about a week he is lovin it and has left his little tricycle in the dust...kinda sad for Mom :(

Check out this little guy!

Summer Fun and A Blogger Parade of Homes

Summer is soooo busy and soooo much fun we have been partyin it up camping in Montana, where we visited Elk Horn Hot Springs, explored the old Coolidge Ghost Town and our most favorite of all searched for Crystals at Crystal State kids and I and even my husband loved it, we were addicted!

 If you're near Dillon, Montana I would highly recommend.

Coolidge Ghost Town

We found lots and lots of crystals

The next week we were off to Naples, Florida where the water felt like a bathtub and the white sand felt like flour ooooh I was in heaven!

I have been sooo busy doing laundry from our galavanting that I have no finished projects to share, but three that are close.  So in the mean time enjoy some of these homes on the blogger home tour I stumbled upon....I love browsing other people's homes...kinda weird. 

Here is one of my favorite's from
Here is a full listing of the homes on the tour.
