Oh Happy Day!

Greg got his first bike today! We had been planning to take him as soon as the weather turned nice. Poor kid has a February birthday - so we can't ever give him outdoor toys at Christmas or birthday time, what fun is it to get when you have to tell the kids "You'll have to wait a few months to use it." We've done this with Graham a few times (October birthday, so same thing.) It's so fun for Dan and I to load them up in the car and the next thing they know they are getting something they didn't even think about! He wouldn't take off his flip-flops (a boy after my own heart) so the riding wasn't as good as it could've been, but he did okay. In his prayers tonight he said, "Please bless my new Thomas bike." How sweet is that?

So super sweet. I remember when my parents surprized me with a new bike. I was so excited. I look back at the pictures and they make me happy. I'm sure Greg will too. Yeah for surprizes.

What a little cutie! I love that he had his flip-flops o! Hopefully the sun will shine (without wind) and our boys can be outside and release some of their energy (and their new bikes)!

I really do love the new 'do'! Very chic!

Maybe he can teach Cooper to ride a bike...that kid has a fear of riding a bike.
