Gavin is the son of my foster son Mike and his wife Amber. That makes Gavin my foster grandson. Gavin celebrated his 3rd birthday Saturday afternoon and it was quite a party. Most of Mike and Amber's family was there, parents, siblings, and lots of kids. There was a rented Jupiter Jump, a Pinata, Lots of food and a birthday cake. There were lots of presents but the biggie was a shiny black "Power Wheel" modeled after a Ford Pickup Truck.
it was kept hidden until just the right moment when it was brought out and presented to Gavin. To say that he liked it would be a big understatement. It came with big blue Sully from Monsters Inc. as a copilot.
Everyone gathered around as Gavin got his first driving lesson. It has an accelerator and brake pedals, steering wheel, lights, and horn. It is powered by a rechargeable battery and has a top speed of 2 1/2 mph, or 4 kph. The doors and hood open and the tailgate lets down just like a real truck
After a few low impact bumps he got the idea and was able to drive around the back yard with only a few mishaps. This was a BIG hit. Happy Birthday Gavin. Thanks Mike and Amber, this was a great party.
