what they'll do for ice cream...

It's been 3 months since Caroline's bike accident which left her in surgery to repair a broken wrist.
 The scars are still healing.

And so is her heart.

She's been afraid to get back on the bike.
Thankfully it's been too cold to try anyway.

But on a warm Sunday afternoon last week, 
it was time.

We'd already talked about this day.
She wanted to ride on the level basketball courts across the street.

We promised her ice cream if she could face her fears.

 This guy wanted to come along, too.

"I ride, Mama!"
She wanted Daddy to walk beside her for the first few seconds.

 And then she was off!

From the look on her face,
you could tell she was so happy to be back on that bike again.

(though she wasn't the only one that was nervous, honestly!)

My turn to run alongside her.
Man.  He's so cute.

I'm so proud of her for conquering her fears of the bike!

Even if it was for ice cream.
