And obviously for the kids, who doesn't love a new bike. The winners got to choose from two options -- a green bike, or a white and pink bike with tassels on the handlebars.
I wasn't particularly concerned with buying "fun stuff" for my sisters, especially since it was my birthday. What I was concerned with was the money lesson and what it meant for my Birthday Bike and me. The bike that I wanted was a beautiful, purple, bike with tassels, a large white, wicker basket in the front and lots of unnecessary glitter. To an 11yr old girl, it was perfection on two wheels and just my size.
