Deciding To Share Responsibility With My Son

Some of my family thought I was crazy when I told them I wasn’t going to put the bike together prior to Christmas morning.  I mean, I did want to see Gus’s face when the bike was ready to go and we hop on and go for a ride.

But I wanted to experience putting a bike together with Gus for the first time.  We had a blast!  Here are some pictures to share.

Gus and I spent roughly about a half hour walking through each part of the bike learning the names and way they fit together. Luckily, this bike fit together like a puzzle with several large pieces assembled.

Now we are ready to ride!

    Hey, love your writing, man. I see you help a lot of other working dads and give them advice. If you ever come across some guys looking for some extra work on the side, please send them my way.
