Green Machine Monsters

The Wee One's US grandfather bought him a Huffy Green Machine for Christmas. Had never heard of them before. It only took me about 20-30 minutes to put it all together.

I then spent two days--Christmas and Boxing Day--standing in around C4/F40 acting as point guard while he rode it around our quiet streets. Thankfully the bucket seat adjusts very easily so I could have the occasional turn, to help warm me up every once in a while. But that made both of us frustrated.

Enough was enough! The very next day I took matters into my own hands, did a quick Google search--could have waited ten days for a pink one (hmmm)--but two hours was long enough--jumped in the 4Runner, drove to the local Toys' R Us, and bought my very own Green Machine.

On explaining my impulsiveness to FliesWithKiwiBird, I outlined the benefits of the WeeOne now being able to play with his mates.

Have I mentioned how much fun these Green Machines are?! And what great exercise they are?!

Oh, and you should see my spinning 180s...
