Doesn't matter how old they are...
Long a collector of all sorts of mechanical
crap, The Husband, without my knowledge (or approval) swapped one bit of machinery for two smaller bits....two smaller NOISY bits that have the kids thrilled and their mother not so much.
On the bright side, its one way of forcing their father to spend more time with the kids, with numbers 2 and 3 shadowing his every move yesterday, fetching any tool he might need, to sweeten him into letting them ride the noisy beasts sooner rather than later.
And if you can stand it....here is a little video that I put together of the action, complete with the 6 ft 2 tall husband having a lap on the little bike. This sort of footage is just screaming to be shared! ;-)
Needless to say, the horsepower of the four legged, breathing type, have been a little neglected the last couple of days. Don't worry, I've visited them myself, and told them that I still love them, even if the kids don't!
