Mama's New Bike

Hubby and the boys went shopping on the weekend to get new soccer cleats and a birthday present for a friend of Mr. J's.

When they came home, I went outside to see them and hubby opened the tail gate on the truck. Inside, was a brand new women's bike (purple).  I haven't really ridden since before I had children, and mine was tucked away in the basement for storage.  When we took it out this year, it must have been stuck on something because the casing around the chain, and the brake wiring came apart.

We knew we could have it fixed, but it was going to need a complete tune up as well and we figured it would cost the same as a new bike.  While the boys were out, they saw one on sale for a great price (much CHEAPER than having mine fixed) and hubby bought it.  There were a few to choose, and the boys chose the purple one because it is my favourite colour.

It was such a nice surprise. Of course, I didn't have a helmet anymore so Mr. J and I took a trip to Walmart in the afternoon to buy one.

I am really looking forward to getting out for bike rides this summer. Now that Mr. K knows how to pedal it should make it easy!
