What started as a simple trip to Walmart for one child became a trip to several stores for two kids plus a bell for the third child. After looking for bikes, we ended up at the Trek store and found the perfect bike and fit for our "G". It even had a cute basket in front with a bell ringer! It fit her like a "glove". Well, the next thing I know, "Z" is on a bike with his dad checking out the gears. The salesman looks at me and tries to convince me that a larger version of this boys bike was used in the Tour in France. I replied "Yes, that will be important as he is training around our cul de sac." It ended up being a early birthday gift for him...it is quite snazzy and rides like a cloud. As a child, I remember getting new bikes with my dad...it was almost like buying a car!
