Our daughter’s birthday is in January, so that means that the bulk of her gift-receiving is done when the weather is cold and snowy. That’s not the ideal time to get a new bike! A girl can only ride so many laps around the dining room, you know.
A while back we decided to get Emma a new bike this summer. The one she started learning on last year was a great auction find that my parents made. It did the trick for starting out last year, but it was too small for this year.
Armed with a Toys ‘R Us gift card (from redeemed National City points) and some cash, we headed out to hunt for a big-girl bike. My husband kindly assembled the bike, and now look at her!
Summertime… a new bike… and a patient daddy…. What more could a girl ask for?
