Balance Bike

My son learned how to ride on a Strider bike. He started riding it when he was 2 years old. Six months later he was riding a regular pedal bike without training wheels!

Now my 2 year old daughter is riding it.
You can purchase one at Over the Edge bike shop in Hurricane. The price is a little high at $100, but my sister found a new balance bike by Walmart that may be a great alternative. It is only $30!

My Review: Love it! Management helped me find a table in the play area and carried my tray for me. They also gave my friend Sergeant Phil a free meal because he was working and in his army fatigues. I like the play area better than the one in St. George. This restaurant is closer to my home and that is another bonus.
