Birthday Presents!
« on: June 12, 2008, 08:02:58 PM »
It was my birthday when I was out of town for work and my awesome wife had some incredible gifts waiting for me when I got home -

1.  A new handlebar - A nice Answer Pro Taper...no more carbon bars for me  ;)
2.  New pedals - new version of Time ATAC's.
3.  New gloves
4.  Fancy Hope bar end plugs
5.  Some clear frame protectors.

The haul:

That is pretty much what I did...I added a ton of stuff to the shopping cart at JensonUSA and then let her pick and choose what she wanted to get me.  I'm still trying to figure out why she didn't get me that Intense 6.6 frame I put in there  ;D

Nice.. I wonder what she has lined for you for Fathers day.  Unless you are not a father yet.

Actually, I'm a father of two...

Here's Little Lorna (my wife's name is Lorna and her mom's name is Lorna so we have to differentiate) who just turned 3:


And here is Jamison who is about to turn 1:

Bro, you must be like me.  Married to a GOOD lookin' woman!  Those kids are CUTE!  My kids (6,8,10) are cute, and all I ever hear is "they don't look ANYTHING like you"!

I actually hear the opposite...their faces and skin color come from me, but, thankfully, they inherited my wife's body type.  My claims that she sees me all the time when looking at Jamison.
