Bikes, Paint, and Superman

Shortly before Jake turned four we bought him a little bike. In the week leading up to Jake's birthday Cameron disassembled the entire bike and painted it green with a yellow stripe so Jake could have a John Deere bike. (Jake's John Deere obsession was young at that point but extremely vibrant.) Jake was thrilled with his birthday present that year.

Then recently we bought Jake a much bigger bike, and Abby needed a little princess bike. Cameron again disassembled the entire bike and painted it pink and purple with a final coat of sparkles. Abby is in heaven.
I love seeing the kids' faces light up when Daddy gets their bike just right. I love seeing Abby so giddy and happy as she cruises all over on her new wheels. And I feel pretty lucky to be married to a Superman who can wield screwdrivers and cans of paint so darn handily. I am a lucky woman.
