From there, a quick stop to pick up our CSA Full Belly box and head over to our friend's house. Mostly, I feel recovered from our weekend's adventure but I am still feeling a bit fatigued and constantly hungry. My body doesn't even have much soreness, which is very surprising to me. Jose on the other hand, is hobbling around with his ankle taped up. We're guessing that it was a strain from an old injury that flared up during the trip. One thing that is very noticeable is the difference in our preferences for bikes. Jose has always been one for the lightest, fastest, carbon-filled bikes--racer bike style with a stretched out position. I have always been drawn to the more comfortable, steel framed, sturdy, big bikes--made for long distances, not for speed or weight. It is interesting to me that he is the one in pain and I am not. I'm pretty sure that that makes me the winner.
We had fun carrying the Strider around, too (loaded up in the crate). Big Brother loved getting some riding in at our friend's house. Back at home, we attempted to install our very own "You Ain't Got Jack" sunshade for the Mundo. I had more issues with it than I had hoped. The PVC got a kink in it so it's a bit off center and putting the holes in the Peanut Shell wasn't super easy (and I accidentally put in more holes than needed). Finally, the stroller shade that I had to use isn't the greatest, it's quite small. However, my main goal is to get an actual sun shade for the entire seat to protect Big Brother from harmful UV rays and heat. We don't get a ton of rain here in Sac and I didn't really like the idea of covering him in vinyl since it's not as necessary for us. I'm going to give our current set up a try and see how it goes. I might need to get a cheap/used stroller with a better cover for it. Now, if I can just sort out the little one's situation. Suggestions?
