A new set of wheels and a trophy!

I'm guessing that based on the title of this post many of you assume that we purchased a new car...given Jay's propensity for trading in vehicles! But no - our new mode of transportation only has two wheels...sort of!! Take a look.....

I can't tell you the last time I was on a bike but I have never seen more people out riding bikes than they do here, so we're joining the masses!  Plus, Jack's school and our awesome Rec center are only a bike ride away. :)

Nathan & Matthew love to ride in their trailer....although they are right next to each other so occasionally some personal space issues arise.

Over the weekend Jay & Jack built and raced Jack's first pine wood derby car....and he won 3rd place/best in show!!!  Here is the ecstatic winner with his very first trophy!!

The Rocket car Jack created (with Jay's help!) complete with flaming asteroids across the bottom.

You guys have been so busy since getting to Florida! That bike is fantastic.

Conrad thinks Jack's car is "awesome!" And he would like to do one too, now :)
