Bikes

David purchased bicycles for both boys at a rummage sale in 2012 while in Pennsylvania.  The boys quickly mastered riding bicycles and loved just going, going, going.  They were sad when we needed to give away the bicycles when it was time to leave to return to Missouri before returning to Cameroon.  Joshua was okay with it after he received a scooter and a pair of roller skates, but Jonah continued to ask about a bicycle.

Both boys received Christmas money and Jonah knew immediately what he wanted to spend his money on – a bicycle.  We were concerned because new bicycles that are imported have a high price tag.  When we went searching for a used bicycle in market areas, we just couldn’t find one his size.  After driving around a while, we ended up going past a store that has imported items for the big price.  We decided to stop and just look.  They had a bicycle that was everything Jonah described – blue, his size and cool!  The price was high, but then we were happily surprised by a sale they were having and it brought the price to his range.  He’s a proud owner of a blue, cool bike!

Jonah on his new bikeDavid doesn’t like it that Jonah rarely wears shoes.  The first thing he normally does when playing is kick off his shoes and that’s the first thing he does to ride his bike.  I wonder where he get’s it……

    LOVE that! Yay Jonah!! You look great on your new bike! I so remember you never wearing shoes to ride your bike DeAnna! And, when you did, sometimes they got in your way because you weren’t used to them and they’d fall off anyway….in the middle of the highway! LOL
