I talked to my mom about it and she said she and my dad wanted to get her the bike for her birthday. They don't get to be here to see the kids open presents on their birthdays anyway, so we thought it would be fun to facetime with them and then have them "be there" when she first saw the bike. It was so fun- they (along with my niece Ella) even sang her happy birthday first!
We go for walks/bike rides pretty on a daily basis and she's thrilled now to be riding her own bike...she has 3 lalaloopsy dolls and she very fairly switches them out each day so everyone gets a turn to ride :)
The morning she got the bike, we took the kids down to the beach for a walk/ride on the strand.
This one cracks me up...she still loves snails :)
