Gavin is Three

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.

I'd love one of those to go shopping in but I'd need L plates for quite a while :-)

Lucky Gavin.

Nothing like a child's birthday party.

I have always wanted to have a car like that when I was a kid, but as you guess, it doesn't really fit in French apartments. Maybe I would have been a better driver... or not!
