Sam got a new Spiderman Tricycle yesterday. He hopped up within 2 seconds of sitting on it for the first time...a little scared. But I mentioned to him that his friend Virginia had one similar and he was willing to try again. He didn't want to get off his trike after that.As you can see in this next picture his legs aren't quite long enough to pedal. He has to stretch big time just to touch.
So Pops, his engineer-granddad, decided to give Sam a better chance at pedaling. Two small wooden blocks were taped (with electrical tape) around the existing pedal. Good try Pops; but unfortunately it didn't work. For now I guess he'll just coast down the hill.
