So I got an email last week that Bike and Trikes for Tykes Organization was losing their warehouse and having to get rid of all there merchandise. So Saturday, bright and early we high tailed it down there to get us some bikes. We got there at 8:30am and WOOOHH! They had bikes and bikes and bikes. We got DH and I new mountain bikes, Gioia a bike and Dominic a brand new trike (still in the box), for $70 dollars! The mountain bikes each needed minor work. One of them needs a new wheel. So we started calling everyone we knew to GO GET A BIKE! DH went back with a friend around 1pm and they were already loading a dumpster with bikes. NOOO!!! He ended up getting 10 bikes this trip. My sister-in-law and her family lost their bikes in a garage fire a month ago, so we got bikes for all of them. This second trip he spent $36 dollars on 10 bikes. SCORE!

Sunday we went to the Nelson-Atkins Art Museum for a tour of the Italian art. It was great. We had a good time. The kids stayed with a friend for a playdate. Also, remember how I said that bike needed a wheel? Well we were in the vicinity of the bike place, so we went back. DH went dumpster diving and we came home with a complete mountain bike, a kids bike and an extra wheel. Turns out the dumpster mountain bike is worth like 700 dollars and is better than the first one that we paid for. HA HA!!

So here is what my garage looks like:
