Beulah's Maiden Voyage

A few months ago, I bought myself a bike that I fell in love with.  Sadly when it arrived, after quickly tearing into the box, I noticed some of the parts were bent beyond repair. My darling of a husband called the manufacturer and apparantly this was a big problem. My parts were back ordered and "would show up sometime in the next few months."  About 2 weeks after I had forgotten about them, a mysterious box appeared on my door step. Upon one glance at the return address where the word HUFFY was written in small print, I realized that Beulah would finally be complete. :D

In the weeks between getting my bike and getting the parts to complete her, we gathered the other neccessities for our family bike outings.

A helmet for Keegan

And a helmet for Reece

And a trailer for them both to ride in

Our first ride was short. I guess it's not a great idea to go riding when it's 96 degrees outside and you have a cold. The sweats and the headache came on fairly quickly. But we had a great time. The boys had a great time, giggling all the way.
