"Good-Bye Training Wheels, Hello Kickstand!"

That's a direct quote from Mikayla, moments after she successfully rode her bike without training wheels attached... at least for a few moments at a time.

She's had "this feeling" all week that she's been ready and we've been putting her off each night until her and Daddy finally made a deal that they'd try tonight, as well as purchase a kickstand for her bike so it could stand up on its own once the wheels were removed (for whatever reason, this was a huge deal to Mikayla - in fact, she woke up Tuesday morning and immediately went out to the garage to verify that indeed, her bike did not have one).

The pictures detail her success better than my words ever could. Note where our hands are (or aren't) and her expressions - just priceless!
