I Got a Bike!!

So, last week I think it was, my dad went out and bought a new bike for Caroline, Mum, and himself. I have not ridden bikes in years, partly because I DREADED to wear a helmet (may have been because it was hot and stuff, may have been because I thought it was ugly....), and partly because I tend to crash. I clearly remember the last time I rode my bike. It had recently rained (read the grass was slick), and my bike was old (read the brakes had gone out). I was flying down our driveway, which then, if you turn off of it, leads to a grass covered hill with a large trampoline at the bottom, when boom! I ran smack into the trampoline. Needless to say, that was the last time I can recall riding a bike.

But-yesterday I rode with Care and dad (I was on Mama's bike), and I managed just fine and had a lovely time. Now because I'm 16 I don't have to wear a helmet (oh yeah!) (no worries, we looked it up and read the laws), and I'm not sure if it was because of that or the riding experience, but I was enthralled, to the point that I drove to Walmart and bought a bike today! :) So without further ado, here are some pictures I took of my new bike! Oh, and btw, it was half off because it was outside and they were clearing out for Christmas stuff! 
I can carry people or things, weighing 22lbs. or less :P
The cute little seat! And it has springs for added comfort! I have no idea what the brand Panama Jack is. Nor do I really care. But the writing is pretty :)
I am wearing: Pink cashmere sweater: thrifted
pink skirt: made by me
flower chiffon headscarf: thrifted

the handlebars are foam dyed to look like wood isn't that adorable??

Cup holder. It also has a bottle opener lol

headscarf :)
This bike is wonderful and I'm very happy with it and will be riding it lots more in the future! I need to find a basket so I can carry the camera along with me too. It's a cruiser bike, which means it's a little hard to ride uphill, but I don't really care :) The tires are pretty.
