These ride-on cars have been in the family for nine years! Bentley got them both for his first birthday. Obviously both givers knew a good gift when they saw one. Since Kara knew by that time that she'd be having twins, she did not exchange one of the duplicate gifts.
All the children have enjoyed riding on the cars. Many miles have been put on the plastic tires! Bentley even rode one down the staircase much to his parents' dismay. (He wasn't hurt.)
Kara has been threatening to get rid of the cars for the past year. She claims the little boys are too big for them, but nonetheless Lincoln and Evan have both still enjoyed playing on them. Last month while they were playing crash and bang on them (something we discourage!), the steering wheel broke on one of the cars. The car with the broken steering wheel went in the garbage and the other car was given to Grandma Vicki who runs a daycare.
Here is a last photo of the twins on the cars back in 2008--prior to their first birthday!
Good-bye Dear Cars!
