I bought bikes for Christian and I on Tuesday. I found a used bike for myself at Goodwill for 39.99 and Christian got a new bike. I also had to buy helmets, I picked up a child carrier seat for Laim and I needed a tire pump as well. I also want to ride my bike to work which is in the dark, so I have to buy reflector tape and a light. We had to get bike locks and I need a backpack to get my stuff to work. Getting bikes is expensive. David also needs a new bike and I would like to get something for Liam.
Christian is totally ready for a bike with training wheels. We went to the library Tuesday and he had his maiden outing. He did great.
I have not been on a bike since 1989 and when I took a trail run out on my street, it was obvious. I decided that I need to take a few trips around the block and to work before I try putting Liam on the back. David is putting the final touches on the childseat right now and we have to get the seat right and I will go take a little ride this morning alone. When I say ride, I mean like Brady Bunch ride up and down my street. Portland has some wonderful bike trails and it will be fun to get the family on them.
I am the family photographer, so we will not have any pictures of the hall of shame known as my getting re-aquainted with bicyling.
Here is another layout I did with Liam playing in the compost bin. I used Boy Oh Boy by Doin in Digi at Designs in Digital.
