All Dressed Up Challenge -Anything Goes

 Hello and welcome.

Today I am playing catch up.

We had the Grandson this weekend and it is his birthday Wednesday.

So we where on a bike hunt. He loves his little 3 wheeler and it folds slightly so great for in the car. I bought it as it said up to 6 omg he is going to be 4 and I am saying it is too small. He hates wobbly thing so a bike with stabilizer's he wasn't keen. Anyway we sat him on several and no not having any then off we went to Decathlon and sat on a 16inch smyths said he needed a 14 although we didn't think it would last long. Well next thing we knew he was off round the shop on his own pleased as punch. So glad he liked and 8am next day he was saying come on Dad I want to go out on my bike.

So now I am catch up with my Blog challenge card for
