I will share a "learning how to ride a bike Campbell process". I don't know if others try this, or if my dad is really that much of a genious, but he taught myself and my sisters how to ride a bike, and we all have passed it down to our kids. It sounds crazy, but all you do, is take the training wheels off the bike, AND the pedals. It forces the child to first learn balance. They just skoot with their feet, and little by little they get braver, and once the balance is mastered the pedals go back on and they just ride off! Funny enough, they actually make bikes now without pedals called training bikes for like $200 lol. My dad should have patented that idea. We let Laura just coast around for about week before the pedals went on, but once they did she just took off! We are now working on Rachel. I figure in a few weeks we will be hitting up the bike shop soon to get them some big girl bikes =)

Video 2 is her doing the real deal!
