Bike Helmets

Imagine my surprise (and delight) the other week when my dear hubby arrived home with a huge shopping bag. I LOVE shopping and I LOVE presents and I LOVE surprises…so what could go wrong you ask? Bike Helmets! My sweetie had lovingly purchased 2 helmets; 1 for me and 1 for him. I know…I know…everyone is supposed to wear bike helmets…but seriously…I am not training for the Tour de France, nor am I riding on the side of a highway or at any great speed…I am following a four and a half year old with training wheels for goodness sakes…what do I need a helmet for??? Now, to be fair…we had talked about this. The kind of talk where we don’t decide anything, just talk. “We really should be wearing helmets as a good example for the kids” kind of talk…not the “Let’s go out and purchase helmets” kind of talk. Anyway, I am now the “proud” owner of a bike helmet and it got a debut ride just over a week ago. All 4 of us donned our gear and rode to “The Big Park”. There is a “rock wall” that the kids climbed, slides, swings and lots of good park stuff…then we rode home. I will have a search…but I think the photo of me in my helmet has somehow disappeared…but here is one of Adrian and the kids to enjoy:
