Over the weekend we had one goal and one goal only.....get the B'ster his 2nd birthday gift. It was a no brainer when it came to his one big gift for this year's birthday. A bicycle. The fella loves bikes. Bicycles and motorcycles. To him, they are all the same.
So for him to have his very own "bi" as he would call it, would make us the coolest parents ever in his eyes. So we set out to accomplish just that....get-him-his-very-own-and-very-first-bicycle!
Jer's mom came to watch him on Saturday from 10-3p so we had 5 hours to get'er done. Thanks, Nana!!
Long story short, first up was Academy. No luck. Then it was Wal-Mart (right next door). No luck. Then it was a bicycle shop. No luck. Target. No luck. And finally as we were driving home a little defeated and running out of time, Jer pointed to Babies R Us/Toys R Us. So he whipped a U'ie and drove back to see if they had one. And what do you know?! Hallelujah! They had the perfect one. Neon green, black, white and no disney/cartoon characters. Sold!
It's called the Tony Hawk Park Series 360. And for 99 buckaroos it was ours.
14 inches of pure awesome-ness.
The following day, Jer took it upstairs into the guest bedroom (to hide it from Boston. i can't believe we are already having to "hide" things from him) and started assembling it right after we put B down for his nap. Babies R Us asked if we wanted to pay $10 more to have them assemble it, but Jer wanted to do it himself. So that's what he did.
And while doing so, he took my camera and shot some photos of the assembly process. The longest part was getting the handlebar breaks adjusted just right. He had to do a lot of tweaking. But he managed to get them fixed and ready.
As he was in there, I would go and check on him every once in a while making sure he was still alive, everything was going ok and to take a few iphone pictures.
Breaking the seal.
My lover mid-eating. :)
