our new wheels.......

I've offically declared this the summer of the bikes! We kicked it off with shiny new bikes for the kids, and they are over the moon! So far we've been on trips to Kate's house, the bank, the bakery, and I've lost count on the trips around the block. (In our latest trip around the block we discovered that directly behind us lives a little family of goats, and they have 3 new babys, only days old! How did we not know this before?)

The night we bought the bikes they slept in the house with the kids, in their bedroom, covered in their favorite blankets just in case they got cold!

This was our first trip around the block, at about 9am, the morning after we bought the bikes. Look at that boy go!
Have you ever seen a prouder little boy? He calls it his "motorbike!" And he keeps saying, "this is the best moterbike I ever saw!"

Yesterday we took the training wheels off of E's bike, she's so intent on riding that thing, she loves it so much! I'm sure you'll be seeing more posts about the beloved bikes........

Oh so not fair that it is summer there already! Our kids are in desperate need of new bikes also! So good to see you are all settled in and having fun!

That is so great! I want this to be our summer of the bikes too. Just need to get one for Jackie - or one for Alice and give Jackie Alices. Eve can totally ride her tricycle. But Alice is have trouble with the only 2 wheels - if E figures it out - then we would love some tips! Crazy about the goats!
