~Check that off the list ~

How old were you when you first rode a bike? 

How about a trike? 

I think I was around 5-6 years old by the time I got the bike figured out. 

Well- the point is: 
Denalli is 6 years old and has never been able to effectively ride any sort of wheeled toy by herself, due to muscle weakness. 

Until Recently!!

While we were in SLC at the hospital, we met a little girl who had SMA type III and used a cute "lowrider" trike to get around. 

The little girl was nice enough to let Denalli have a go at it and this is what happened: 

Denalli rode a trike and was finally able to make it go- 



At the end of the video, the PT went and got a roll of tape and we taped her feet to the peddles and she continued to go up and down the hall countless times- enjoying the freedom of independence! 

We are currently looking into getting her a trike like the one she rode, so she too can enjoy ridding in circles on the cement and working her muscles! 

Here is another video of her enjoying a radio flyer trike at our host families house:


Thanks for your support and Prayers~

One BLESSED mommie
