So, this Christmas it was time they had their own bikes.
Austrians are serious about their bikes, which means they can be costly! We decided to head to Hungary to a store we knew from living in Spain.
Our hour and a half drive to Gyor, Hungary proved to be fruitful! We found bikes for the kids in the price range we were shooting for.
I was so excited to see their little faces on Christmas morn! But we knew we couldn't just wheel the bikes into the house or they might wake up in the night and discover their gifts.
We thought through how we could make a little puzzle/scavenger hunt for them to find their gift.
We first let them open their gifts under the tree. They saw they got bike helmets, but they still weren't sure if they were getting bikes.
Under their pillows was another note with one word.
It was fun watching them try to figure it out.
Once they figured it out, they went running. It was so fun and they were so excited!!
I also did some cleaning and preparing, because the next day, the 26th we headed to London for 4 days!! More about that in the posts to come!
