Turning Wheels for Kids

Yesterday was a memorable day of giving back to children in need. We participated in the Turning Wheels for Kids event in San Jose, Ca. where 600 volunteers come together each year to build 2000 brand new shiny bikes for children in need. \

Not only did I learn how to put together bikes of all types, (my favorite was the Incredibles bike complete with the eye mask, fanny pack, and shiny wheel covers) and we got to watch some pretty incredible children get to hand pick their new bikes out. To see the smiles on their faces as they rode around the convention hall floor, knowing that this may be their first bike (hopefully not their last) and to be able to be a small part of bringing such an enjoyable activity into their lives is pretty amazing.

so, check out the pics at

ps-I have lots to blog about - just been too busy with holiday stuff. But the great news on the personal side is that I completed the 7 day fat loss with some remarkable results - for me at least and will be sharing those soon so stay posted.

until then, have a safe and happy holiday.
