Happy Birthday Danica!

Posted by on August 20th, 2006 at 8:35 am

Today we’re having a party for my daughter Danica. It’s hard to believe but she turned one year-old last week. Since I announced her birth and her first-ever bike ride on this site, I thought I’d share a few photos of her first bikey year.

Here’s Danica and her sister Eleni crashed out in the trailer with the Fremont bridge in the background.

And here she is with Juli on the Springwater Corridor Trail coming home from Earth Day,

I snapped this shot at Alberta Park while we watched some bike polo,

And before she was happy in the baby seat and trailer, Juli would carry her like this (look closely at the bump on Juli’s belly),

And just last week, here’s a couple shots of Danica enjoying her first ever Bridge Pedal!

With my 3.5 year old just about to start riding a tag-along bike and Danica now much more comfortable on long rides, I’m really looking forward to the coming year.

By the way, there’s a backyard birthday party this afternoon at my house. If you know where I live, you’re welcome to stop by!

Jonathan,
thanks for sharing such a fabulous occasion with your readers. It’s great to see such a bikey-baby. The pic from the bridge was amazing – clearly she has no fear of heights. Happy Birthday Danica!
