New Bikes!

Want to see two happy girls? Get them new bikes. "Big girl" bikes, with Barbie things, and streamers and glitter and a bell and a basket or a backpack and a little bike that can hold a Barbie doll on it and attach to the handle bars or come off for some fun inside too. Want to see how happy they are?



Big smiles. :) And as I tucked them into bed tonight, I told our little Peanut how much of a big girl she is with her new bike and she said "I love my bike" with a big smile. As I tucked Goosie in, she said "Thank you for my new bike" with a big hug. Made me so happy to see them so happy.

The downside? Poor Goosie has "growing pains" frequently. I always thought it was just a saying, but she feels it. Wakes her up. And it just did, as I was typing here. Both feet are hurting her from all that bike riding. Her seat is lower than it needs to be for the pedals but just right for her to reach the ground-she's at an in-between stage. She never ends up sore in the mornings either, which is good, but right now she's not so happy. :( Poor baby. But, thankfully, as I said, tomorrow it will barely be a memory.

So, I'll leave you with one more great shot. I love this one...



  1. They look like they're having the best time ever!!! And how lovely that they're so appreciative and loving. Sounds like a good day.

    Hope the growing pains get better. I had them too, in my back. Funny, because I ended up quite short-torso-ed. :)

  2. Love seeing the pictures of your cute happy little girls! And it brought back memories of my first bike, a purple banana bike.

  3. What adorable bikes! Sure fits those cute personalities!

    Oh, and my son had growing pains for YEARS! His knees were mostly affected, and he would cry at night. The only thing that made him comfortable was laying in bed with a pillow under his knees. The doctor told me that he was growing faster than his ligaments were.

    Hopefully he's done with that stuff now that he's 15.
