Spring Break Surprise

I have to preface this post by saying that I really think my kids have the best grandparents in the world. I know the world is filled with wonderful grandparents, but I happened to be pretty partial to the ones that love my kids so very much! They are always willing to do anything they can for my kids, they love being with them, & would honestly do anything for them. All 4 of them have spent countless hours playing with & spoiling each of them (as the parent I have at times taken issue with the spoiling aspect & tried my best to keep it at a minimum, but to be honest I am fighting a losing battle). That being said, onto the spring break surprise.

A couple of weeks ago Chris' parents kept the kids so that we could go out of town overnight. It happened to be a really pretty day, so they were all playing outside. One of my kids' favorite things to do outside is to ride their bikes, however, while they were outside my father-in-law noticed a few things going on with the bike situation. I won't go into all the details, but all 3 kids really needed new bikes. They were outgrowing the ones they had & one bike had been run over & the tire was warped. At the time no one said anything to me about it, but fast forward to yesterday morning & Chris' dad showed up wanting to get 3 new bikes for the kids! I was definitely surprised to say the least & the kids were sooo excited. This was such a sweet thing for him to do. The kids got to pick out what they wanted (with some stipulations from me), and bring them home to start having fun with them. They rode their bikes all yesterday afternoon & would have continued riding them all evening, but I had to drag them off the bikes to get to T-ball practice :0)

Thanks Daj!! We love our new bikes!
