Lambs and Lions

Oh, yeah baby!! You better believe this is the coolest bike on our street this spring!

So cool in fact, that Matthew's best friend around the corner is so jealous that he is telling other neighbours that he sold this bike to Matthew because he no longer liked it. Luckily, Matthew being the easy-going kid that he is, just shrugs and carries on his way.

It is a rite of spring here in S. Ontario to go to Canadian Tire and pick out your new bike (when you are a kid). The aisles are filled with kids and parents looking and trying them out. It is very congested but fun. The spring air seems to bring everyone out of hibernation and they are in smiling happy moods while picking out that perfect bike.

***********************

Well today is the last day for the month of March. And it goes out like a lamb, at least here. For the most part March has been a lamb for us. It did come in like a lion, so according to folk lore it must go out like a lamb.




For you, has March been mostly lions or lambs? I know that a lot of people had some pretty crazy weather. And, just in case you are thinking that I am rambling on about weather, please remember I am Canadian where our national pass-time is talking (and complaining) about the weather:)

Missy said...

We like Spring around here too. While it last for oh, say, 1.5 weeks. Everything is fresh and new, and then... straight to 95 degree days, and complaining about the heat!

Lori said...

I am so happy for you that spring is arriving!! We don't have "weather" like you do there, but I am happy with whatever comes our way day to day here in So. Ca. Nothing a sweatshirt won't fix! Matthew looks so good on that bike and he will clock in many miles of fun and boy daydreams. I love you Pam.

Love and Hugs, Laurie

Is that bike motorized??

anyway it's cool. (I suppose, what do I know about coolness?)

Yay I'm number one on the widget on the sidebar! :)

Around here the weather has very much lived up to the saying, "If you don't like the weather wait five minutes." It has very much gone back and forth over and over. Although, I think it came in like a lamb and is going out like a lion (not that uncommon here). It was really cold yesterday and is again today.

Me said...

That Is REALLY cool bike!

I just wish the weather here would make up its mind.

Mary@Holy Mackerel said...

That is one cool bike! Spring here is not sure yet what to do. Cold, yet not. Rain, then snow...

Randi Troxell said...

hehe, your funny! our march has been filled with nothing but lions! its so weird, really stormy, windy, and even *gasp* way colder than normal!! keep in mind though any weather thats not 80 or above and sunny is strange for us here in south Georgia, lol!

Kristie said...

It's cold and sunny today, so I guess it's going out like a lion? We've had a few warmer days, so that was nice. I can't wait for all our days to be warmer, though! :-)

Kristina P. said...

Stupid lions! It's been snowing for the past several days.

Alicia said...

LOL...now I'm confused on which animal to use!

But, it has been nice and sunny here in Northern California! Can't complain!!

tollesons4him said...

Love the bike and I am sure that he really loves it too!!! Our weather here in Texas has been CRAZY... Friday it was sunny and warm Saturday freezing temps, Sunday warm, yesterday warm and then we had MAJOR storms. Baseball size hail in many of our areas we only got about nickle to quarter size at our house!!

Sneaky Momma said...

Our March was pretty mild. We'll probably get snow in April, though! :)

Together We Save said...

oh so very happy to see spring coming. Warm yesterday, raining today.

Lydia Dustin said...

Hello. Things in Massachusetts have been crazy! Warm one day freezing the next. Rain, sun, freezing, shorts, sweaters, rain gear I am so confused. Just pick a dang season and go with it you know? Today is sunny and sweet! Probably a snow storm tomorrow :P

Sue said...

Hi there fellow Ontario dweller :-D I found your site via my friend Kate's blog and thought I'd pop over and say "hi". Guess our March is going out like a lamb too but thankfully, I missed most of the winter traveling with my hubby so it hasn't been too bad.

Sweet ride your son has got there. Looks like he's going to have a GREAT Spring and Summer ;-)

Bee and Rose said...

That is an AWESOME bike! I have been thinking about getting a bike of my own this spring!

We have definitely been in "lamb" mode here in the desert!

Deb said...

We are in lamb mode--but SWO knows how to celebrate spring! That is one thing about being in California, I miss the seasons and the truly thankful reception of spring and all it's beauty.

West Texas Wife said...

I have to say that is a really COOL bike. Thank goodness he is an easy going kid. I would have had to wip the boy talking about my bike! hehehe. Its not quiet spring in west tx yet.... We had snow last wek and now its only about 65. I am wait'n on the heat!

sandy said...

Very lamb-like here! Although, it was so cold and windy here yesterday that it felt like the beginning of March. I am looking forward to warmer days:0)

blueviolet said...

Lions, lions, lions!!! That bike is so incredibly cool looking. No wonder he's the man of the neighborhood!
