As it came time for me to pick up the munchkins, I realized that I was getting my bike ride over with at the same time. Magic! I was wondering how that was going to work out. It was clearing up at that point but the clouds were still ominous so I packed rain jackets for all of us and put the windshield back on. Quick 3 miles to 'Nama to find neither boy napping as they were supposed to. Two brownies (for me) later, I finally had them in their seats and offered the long way or the short way home. The three miles is just back down the city streets, nice bike lanes but still city driving. The long way is down the American River Trail to Sacramento State and then back home on quiet neighborhood roads. Long way!!! Those brownies were reminding me that I needed to move a bit more today so I was happy when Big Brother agreed.
We spent a leisurely 12 miles chatting about the birds, eating the wind (Big Brother doesn't like the wind so I can keep him from whining by telling him to eat it all up), and listening to Ray LaMontagne. At Sac State, little sprinkles made me pull over and cover the Little one with a poncho (note to self, poncho first, then helmet) and tuck the big one in with his jacket. Luckily, we made it home without getting too wet but the second we got in, down it came! Home safe and dry and in Daddy's care. Life is good!
