Birthday party

This afternoon we are invited to the birthday party of Caitlin and Nicolas, who will be turning two. When Kirsi heard that we were going to a birthday party, her eyes lit up. "Birthday cake?" Guess what her first priority is!!

Yesterday, we finally bought a bike for Der. He's been wanting one for quite a while now but we were holding off because a decent bike here is really expensive. And we can't get just any old bike because Der is just so darn tall!! So, we went to Mall Sport - a mall with shops for all kinds of sports and activities, a pretty cool idea actually - and we looked at all the bikes there. Can you believe there were bikes that cost $10,000?! I nearly peed my pants! I cannot imagine spending as much on a road bike as you would for a car. Wowzers! Anyways, we ended up finding one that Der likes and that fits him. He had to ride it home because we don't have a bike carrier (that's for another day) and it wouldn't fit inside the car. He took the long way home because there was less traffic but since it was his first time on a bike in years, you can imagine that he was quite sore after the half an hour ride!! Poor Der!

We also found a bike trailer here for a pretty good price, Chilean standards of course. Two kids fit in there and it hooks up really easily to the bike. The rain cover is included too. It can also convert to a double stroller, though more for going for walks than for closed in spaces because the bar doesn't fold in. We know Kirsi will love going for bike rides with Daddy (and maybe Mommy if I get back into shape!) and Aidan will too in a few months.

Here are a few pictures of the last little while: Kirsi at the beach and some of Aidan and her.
