A Pink Bike

Ben and I are frugal, bordering on stingy. So the last several months we've looking for a used tricycle to buy Ellie, because we just couldn't bring ourselves to pay for a new one. But after a long and fruitless search, we decided it was worth it to buy it new.  Plus we had just picked up a sused bike helmet at the thrift store the day before.

We've got ourselves a lovely budget, and it has really blessed our lives in so many ways.  At any rate, in our "miscellaneous" category for last paycheck we had some money left over and decided to get the bike.  We were at the NEX (the on base "department" store...) and behold, there were some Radio Flyer tricycles.  We we let Ellie pick between a pink or a red (knowing that either way it will get good use in our house).  She choose pink and couldn't stop talking about it on the way home.  Until she fell asleep.  So while she napped Ben and I put it together.

She can't quite reach both peddles simultaneously (maybe that's why it says for 2 1/2 to 5 years old...), but who cares! She loves it.

Life is just too exciting around here!

  1. So that picture at the top.... I bet if I were to say "Hey Ellie, you have feet like a dancer!" I wonder if her response would be anything like her Momma's?? hmmmm?
