For their birthdays, I would like to get the boys bikes, helmets, and knee pads. Rather than a bunch of little toys, I think it would be great to get them a bigger present this year! ... More ...

For their birthdays, I would like to get the boys bikes, helmets, and knee pads. Melvyn is at the age where he should be learning to ride a bike. And Tristen always wants to do what his big brother does, so he will get a toddler-size push bike.

I will be shopping around to find the right bikes.  I will probably buy a used one in good condition.  The helmets and knee pads, though, need to be new, of course.  To support a local business, I will buy those at High Gear in Emporia.

It will be around $200 for all of this stuff.  This is a big chunk of money, but I figure that it would be easier if everyone who wanted to give them a gift could just chip in a few dollars for this.  (Also... We are running out of storage space in our little house, so bikes that we can keep in our shed will actually be better than toys that we'd have to figure out a place for inside! Win/win!)

Feel free to add a personal note to Melvyn and/or Tristen.  When the boys' birthday party arrives, I will print out all the notes on colorful paper, and we will read them as part of the gift opening ceremony!  :)
