The other day we were at goodwill and saw this bike.
The thing is we're currently on a no-spending kind of budget but the minute I saw River riding this around the store my heart pretty much exploded and I decided right then and there that it was going to be his Christmas gift from Mimi and we got it. (well .. after almost passing it up and Freeland having to walk back in the store to get it after seeing that I was clearly already attached to it)
Obvs this isnt a real big boy bike. But its big boy enough for me that it melts my heart seeing Freeland teach River how to ride it.
I love it.
River especially LOVES it. He rode it out of the store.
We've let him play with it a little here and there. (Every time he see's it he yells TRICYCLE and jumps up and down) But since it is SUPPOSED to be a Christmas gift I think I'll tuck it away until then so he is just as excited when he see's it in December.
Then he gave rides around the neighborhood:
(meaning he wouldnt get off it to share it so Drew put all the other kids behind him to help out ;)
I LOVE THIS PICTURE:
River, Miles, & Wylder
And just to show you what a loving little heart Miles has .. his favorite thing to do:
Pass out hugs to anyone and everyone:
