Noah turns 12 on Saturday and was in need of a new bike. As we are going to DC for an extended weekend and he has a scout bike trip on Tuesday, he got his bike a week early. Can we say excited? He requested gears, a tall frame and a water bottle holder. I think we managed to meet all those requirements. He was very appreciative and also, very excited. He has ridden his bike to school for the last two days and is looking forward to tonight's ride with the Scouts.
