The Smart Cycle

The boys got the Smart Cycle for Christmas from Grami and Papa and I finally put it together today.  We thought it would mainly be for Zach, but Kevin has got more exercise on that thing today than I ever thought possible.  It's a pretty good idea for getting the kids active rather than just sitting still and playing video games all day.  It has them find numbers, letters, and shapes.  I think Zach will get into it soon.
You can see that Kevin's a little big for it, but he loved it.  
He found a part where he can race other cars and that gets him peddling even faster.

Look how he sticks his tongue out when he's concentrating!
Ok, gotta get to sleep.  I have a big trip ahead of me tomorrow.  Probably wont hear from me until next week.  Hasta la vista!

Hey Tasha,
You will have to let me know how well it holds up. I am debating getting it for the boys. We were just at Toysrus yesterday and Gavin was pedaling away on it. How stable is it? Email when you get the chance and the boys have put it to good use! Thanks!

What a great gift! A great way to get exercise and have fun. I think I want one!
I noticed when Kevin was in Mammoth that he sticks his tongue out when he is concentrating hard, just like Grandpa and his dad Gumpy. That is so interesting that he does that. Grandpa does that when he lifts things, when he is concentrating and trying to focus on a task.

Wowee! The Golden Gate and Oakland Bay bridges are closed to trucks due to winds of 50-70mph. You know that I am NOT a nervous-nellie about driving in bad weather, but even I, THE ADVENTURER, would not brave this one. Hope you are safe. I love you lots!

We're SO happy that the boys love the video bike!! Here we thought it would be more for Zach and Kevin is loving it so much. I agree that the more exercise kids get, the better. We can't wait to see them in action on the bike!
Love, Paula
