Ever since Ethan and I had so much fun on the tandem bike in Hilton Head this summer, I have been interested in getting one. About a month ago, Barry and Laura told me they saw one at Target. Well, there were three of them and they have been on sale for quite some time. I figured they must not be too popular as none of them have sold. So, I kept looking back to see if they will go more than 30% off. Today was my lucky day - it was 75% off so I got it for $30! One of the managers was checking me out so I asked her if it would go down even lower. She told me that only seasonal items go to 90% off, but other items only go down to 75%. So I was happy with my purchase knowing that it was the best deal I would get.
My bike has a flat back tire, so I called the bike shop and they said they could fix it today if I just brought in the wheel. That led to a fun experience of removing the wheel and then the harder part of putting it back on. Derek was thrilled with my little project today.
I did put the tandem part together almost all by myself though and Ethan and I had a great ride.
Of course Aubrey had to go on a ride before I removed her seat.
