I will never forget for my 9th birthday I was given a purple Schwinn Sting Ray with a sparkly silver banana seat and a basket with flowers on the front. I was thrilled but as you can see my brother wasn't. My parents captured the moment in a snapshot. I love this photo.

Shortly after I received my gift, my parents gave in to my brother and got him this humongous cruiser bike. He could barely reach the peddles. But from his expression you can tell he doesn't give a darn. He is so proud of this bike.

I picked up an old cruiser the other day and it made me think of this old photo. Not sure what we will do with the bike yet, but somehow we will have to make it a tribute to our brother!
