New Bikes

Is there anything better than watching your children jump for joy?

I promised the kids new bikes once they’d demonstrated they could ride safely without stabilisers. At Easter they cracked it, so this weekend the bike buying commenced. Jo and I built them in secret on Monday night, and we stashed them in the shed for an after school surprise.

Logan is very pleased with the “oh my god full suspension!” and the “it has six gears! I can go up hills!”

Jasmine proud as punch with her grown up bike “it’s beautiful. Can I have a basket to carry my dollies?”


Standing at the end of the drive watching them ride up the street and out of view, so proud but also that little melancholy feeling that they are growing up 🙂 you know what I mean?
