Another Birthday Thread...

Ivy's Birthday is tomorrow, and we'd been talking about getting her a bicycle. Nothing has been done about it yet, though. I got her a little backpack, and a pair of sandle shoes. Today, though, everything fell into place!

I was talking to a coworker and she said not to get a bicycle, but a runner-bike. A runner bike is one of those light bikes with no pedals. I rememberred that our good friends had one for their kids (one is a year and a half older than Ivy), and called them up as I was on may way somewhere. Lo and behold, their kids have grown out of it! I'm going to pick it up on the way home. It has a flat tire (I'm told), so we'll have to fix that tomorrow - no problemo! Here's a link:

Personally, this is just perfect. I love the idea of reusing things instead of buying new (price is good too!), so this will be absolutely perfect, and Ivy will be SO excited!

And then I'm sure there's a pile of things in the box that Gardenbug sent from Ontario! LOL! Gardenbug will be returning from Haiti later this week and will be wanting tons of photos!

We thought about getting balance bikes for the girls instead of real ones. I was hopeing that their feet would have touched the ground and we could have taken the peddels off, but they are too short to reach.

Post pics! I bet she will love it!!!

Poop! My friend called m e back yesterday afternoon realizing she hadn't asked her DH first, and then her son (4yo) decided that he wasn't ready to give up the runner bike yet.. Oh well.

We got a different little one at Canadian Tire ($30), and hope it will do the trick. I also got her a bike helpmet because I realized her head grew and her old one is too small! That's OK, Leo can use the old one and will love it because it has monsters on it!
