O! look Our Christmas gifts from our children & grandchildren

o! yes two bikes!!!
One for hubby and one for me. what a great surprise that was and what a lot of fun we are having making out we are very skilled and know what we are doing. :o) O! and young again lol lol lol!
but this grandfather and grandmother of eight are just loving to have a little summer fun! on our new bikes.
Hubby looks like a bush ranger on his smart racer grey bike (goes beautifully with his beard!) well at least he thinks he is it and a bit! lol lol lol (I think he is trying hard anyway)
And look at this poor specimen of a bike rider! yep! that's me a Nanni of eight trying to look the part. Well family I am having a great time and we are having a good laugh on the way!
believe it or not this is my very first bike and I guess better late then never!! thank you so! so! much to our children and grandchildren. this lovely geared racer in lavender purple is just the ticket for such a lot of fun!
I can tell you my legs hurt and my bottom!!! well the less said the better lol lol lol! :o) but it is the best feeling ridding along chatting and watching the world go by at a slow pace!

Yep! We were thrilled and over the moon to think our family knew us this well and loved us this much and cared about us lots and lots to give us such wonderful gifts that are changing our lives, we now are looking forward to many bike rides together and plan them every night.

This is the beginning of a new year and it is to be filled with happy joyful moments in this pear tree cottage home!!

I wish all my dear blogger friends much happiness for the new year.

thank you to all for visiting us here! - this is our Tuesday 2/1/07

This makes my legs and my bottom just scream!! I am so happy for the both of you though. Gives you time together!! I showed my hubby and he said..Can you drive an RV there? I said...Hm, I don't think so!! I told him that you had invited us anytime!! Wish you were closer we would come!! Have a great time especially with that purple (my favorite color) bike..smile.

Very nice! And some much easier to ride the Christmas bikes in your summer than those who receive them in the Christmas winters!
Have fun.

Biking is great. I rediscovered it about 3 years ago. I loved it as a kid and now I'm 48. Have a blast!

You both look like pros! Love the pictures of you two and the new bikes are awesome. It makes my achey just thinking about adapting to a bicycle seat, though. :)
