New Bike for Daddy

Daddy got a new bike. There was big excitement and a little anxiety about the justice of it all. Cole’s initial response upon hearing about the purchase was “He didn’t use my $50 did he?” (Referring to his well protected bill that he is hot to spend and frustrated that we haven’t let him.) Upon learning that daddy did not trade out his old bike, but instead now had two bikes Aviana told me, “That’s kind of silly, how will he ride them both home from work.”

When he got home with the bike the reactions continued. Cole grabbed hold of it pretending he would climb on and yelled, “This is awesome!” Alidia clasped her hands together with delight and with a big grin looked up at Jeremy and said, “You get new yellow bike?!” Aviana walked over to it, surveyed it a bit and shrugged her shoulders seemingly unimpressed. I think Jeremy’s excitement echoes the enthusiasm of Cole.

I have to admit it's a pretty sweet bike. And Jeremy had been patiently researching prices and watching Craigslist for over a year, so we felt good about the purchase. Expect some fast tri-results this summer....
