Austin & Emily surprised me today with a brand new bike for my birthday! I received a 10-speed mountain bike on my 10th birthday from my grandma and finally ditched it when I graduated from college nine years ago. I haven't owned a bike since. It's long overdue! Emily did a great job of picking out a cool purple (my favorite color) bike AND keeping it a secret for two weeks (they first picked it out while running errands during the garage sale).
We took a family ride around the neighborhood to try it out. Unfortunately, Lincoln just can't keep up on his little tricycle. :o( Emily & I went on an hour long ride later in the afternoon and checked out some new trail extensions that just opened this week. After the kids went to bed I took a solo trip at full speed to Fareway to grab something for lunch tomorrow. What fun!
I have a lead on a used bike trailer for Lincoln. I can't wait to do more biking!
