The Mountain Bike

Joe has been looking for a new bike for the last few years…yes, seriously YEARS!  He finally found one for a good deal, (a good deal for a mountain bike, that is!) and brought it home the other night.  We were all so excited to take it for a test drive.  The family rode their bikes and I followed along behind with my camera.  I love this first picture even though it isn’t focused very well…how does she keep her balance without falling over?!

Of course we had to bring Oatmeal along for the ride…

What?!  You don’t wear your winter boots with shorts in 80 degree weather?  Hmm…

This next picture shows you how big Joe’s bike is in comparison to Reese.  It’s so high that I couldn’t even straddle it, even when he lowered the seat as far as it would go, and I have pretty long legs!

Joe even did a few tricks on it…

The sad part of this story comes when I tell you what happened the next day.  Are you ready for this…?

He took it back!!!  Joe decided that he didn’t like the bike because it hurt his back when he rode it, so he took it back the next morning.  I’m so sad that he didn’t find one that he likes after all this time looking for one.  He doesn’t spend much on himself, so it makes me really sad that this didn’t work out.  Hopefully he’ll keep looking and find one that he loves.
