Peoria Police Bike Rodeo

Saturday morning Kenny woke up early and made us all delicious French Toast. The boys weren't really interested at first, but once they tried it they loved it and Little B even had seconds : ) 

We had big plans to go to the Bike Rodeo at Peoria Sports complex and wanted to get there really early so the boys would for sure get the FREE hike helmets they were handing out. They were SO eager and said they just love it (mind you this was before we even started all the fun activates)

We waited in line for awhile and finally it was the boys turn to get fitted for a helmet: 
They were so dang excited 

Once they were done getting helmets they had a tent where they policy officers would safety check the kids bikes and shine them up. And then it was off to the bike courses-
I was surprised how well Little B did on the obstacle courses.... think it is time to loose those training wheels!  

And then we visited the vendor booths. We got all kinds of free goodies! Brian won 4 tickets to a spring training game which I was super stoked about and Kenny won a $25 gift card! I won a drink cozy... lame, but the boys thought they were awesome and use them as gloves lol  
They also had inflatables for the kids to play on:

It was a really neat even and it was all FREE (which made it even more enjoyable for the adults)! We enjoyed free hotdogs and chips before we left.

After running a few errands we stopped to get dippin dots because I had a groupon from a while back. They boys thought they were fantastic and us adults didn't mind either :) 


  1. Awesome! It looks like you all had a great time! And free is definitely nice!

  2. That is awesome and how cool that they gave away bike helmets. That's such a cool idea. :)
