My New Ride

Wednesday, August 28, 2013

This is a picture I couldn't resist sharing with you all. This is my 2.5 year-old granddaughter Daisy. She was so excited to get to pick a PINK flower from my garden, roots and all!

I woke up with an extra bounce in my step. As soon as possible I went outside and jumped on my brand spanking new bike!

I didn't have to order it after all. We remembered there was another Academy Sports store another 15 minutes up the highway. So at 7 last night we called them and they had one! I was able to get the color that I wanted, which of course will make it a better bike, haha!

I took a 10 minute ride around the neighborhood. 10 minutes was all I had before I had to leave for my daughter's. But 10 minutes got me out of breath. It's a 6 speed bike and I pushed myself to use higher gears. I LOVE IT! Makes me feel like a kid again!

    Cutest of all granddaughters. Nice wheels. All the old Harley dudes say "Anything on two!". God bless.

    I love it. What a great color! I downloaded the Map My Fitness app on my phone and it keeps track of my bicycle miles as I ride as well as my miles whe I run!

Your granddaughter is so sweet!

    Having a color you want in something you desire automatically makes it better!

Congratulations on your wheels.
