Andrew's Vintage Ride

If there's anybody out there reading this blog, you're probably expecting to see more baby photos of Emily, but life hasn't stopped for the other three kids in our home. In fact, earlier this month Andrew celebrated his 8th birthday and we found him a very special birthday present. It took some work and we had to special order some replacement parts, but Adam was able to get this 1969 Schwinn Stingray up and running for Andrew!

He really needed a new bike, but it's virtually impossible to find a simple bike. Everything in stores today is either boy (with flames and skulls and Spiderman) or girl (pink, princess, pixies). I guess that's a slick way to get American's to buy twice as many bikes as they actually need, but we weren't fallin' for it. We also figured that if a bicycle can last 40 years then it'll last another 10-20 for our kids. Anyway, Andrew is pretty stoked about his new ride, complete with banana seat!

And for those of you who just want to see baby pix, we have those too...

AWESOME bike, Adam! Benjamin's bike says, "Tour de hood." It was free. :)

Great picture of Emily. She is so beautiful!
I remember bikes like Andrew's. It is unique and we are glad he likes it.
