Couldn't wait!

Kevin has been wanting a new Big Boy bike. And the other day when we were at Jones' he got to ride Caiden's Big Boy Bike. He told us that was the one he wanted. We showed him pictures of others and even took him into the store but he never changed his mind. He wanted the green one like Caiden.

We decided to save Kevin's new bike and give it to him on his actual birthday. We thought it would be fun to wake up to his balloons and a bike. However that did not happen. Nick just couldn't wait another day so he got his bike on the 6th. It bugged me that we saved it and then just gave it to him on a random day, but he was excited.

He started helping Daddy put it together but then ended up just standing there and asking, "is it done yet. Is it done now. How many more pieces. Can I ride it?"

Daddy took it for a quick ride to make sure it wasn't too wobbly and that he had put it together right!

Mekyla claimed Kevin's old bike but couldn't figure out how to get it to go. So she just sat there and called, "Daddy .... DADDY.... daddy....DADDY!!!!"

As luck would have it, by the time Kevin's bike was ready, it started to rain! Kevin rode around in the rain for a bit and then came in. He went back out as soon as the rain stopped and gave his new bike 2 thumbs up :)

Here is a small cantaloupe we grew in our flower bed. It is about the size of a tennis ball. It was really yummy.
