Two weekends ago (Halloween weekend), Gary, Vincent and I visited the botanical garden (more about that later). When we were finished there, we decided to take a trip to Toys R Us to look for ideas for birthday presents for Vincent. I can't believe he will be 5 in just a few short days (8 to be exact!).
After testing out literally every bike that was his size, Vincent fell in love with a bright, gold bike. Yep, he skipped over the Spider Man, Transformer, Toy Story and all other themed bikes in lieu of a gold bike. You see, thought he could go faster on it, as well as learn to do tricks. He was standing up on it as he was riding it in the store! I think he really could go faster on it, but the frame is made from something lightweight.
The bike features alloy wheels, front and pedal brakes and pegs...yes, pegs.
The next morning (we got home late), Dad put the bike together and we "went for a spin." We went down to the track where Vin zipped around half a mile, no problem. Then he rode over to the park and back home. The past couple of times we've only gone about half a mile before coming home, but he's working on body strength to go up hills (he can't really even do tiny ones yet) and is figuring out the brakes.
Check out this little soon-to-be stuntman.

Riding over to the track... nice, flat surface!
And away he goes!
That's it for tonight. Happy Monday!
