Bradley spotted this Lego Technic set at ToyZone this morning, and bought it with his pocket money… and then spent the next few hours building this crane. Connor helped for a little bit but soon lost interest and went to play Skylanders on the XBox instead 😉
These Technic sets are awesome because there are 2 variations in the box, but now Bradley doesn’t want to break the crane down to build the digger 🙂 and he was thrilled with this one because it has so many moving parts!
It was the perfect thing to do on a lazy Sunday 🙂
Well, I say that, but we actually didn’t have that much time to laze around. I took the kids out for breakfast this morning, and after popping into ToyZone, we went to a cycling shop. I’ve decided that now that Connor can ride without training wheels, I’d like to ride with them on the road. So that was the aim, to price a bike for myself and new bikes for the boys.
I could only laugh though at the salesman. I told him why I was looking for a bike, and he took me to retro bike with a basket and no gears?! Bwahaha!! Imagine me trying to keep up with the boys with a bike without gears!! I know it would look retro and all that, but seriously, not a
good idea where I live with all the hills etc. Bradley promptly told me that I’d need to get a puppy to put in it 😉 Then he started confusing me with options. Turns out I know very little about bicycles anymore, and they’ve changed one hell of a lot since we did the Argus 10 years ago (the last time I rode)! So, now I have no idea what I want to get anymore. I did quite like the Giant Revel 3 though… except they only had it in pink!
As for the kids, Connor made a beeline for a spiderman bike with a proper chair looking seat, and thankfully I managed to convince him that he’d never be able to get up a hill with that seat. And Bradley decided he wanted a proper mountain bike now with gears. I saw some lovely options actually that I think will be added to their Father Christmas list. But what we will do next, is go to a proper cycling shop next time (like Linden Cycles), and get ourselves properly sized instead of the guy at Cajees today guessing what size would work!!!
