Rode out to our Mommy Group playdate with Jen, her son, and their new orange Mundo! So much fun! Our friend Sharyn rode in from the other direction with her kiddo in the trailer. I don't miss the trailer days at all. Jen's bike got to be the official test ride for our group and was enjoyed by all.
I was a little nervous going on such a long ride with Big Brother out of the Peanut Shell, especially during nap time. It's much harder for him to hang on to the seat and he certainly can't fall asleep sitting on the deck. However, he managed to last the hour-long ride home and took a nice long nap in his own bed. I keep meaning to put the PS back on the rack but it's so nice to not have it. With the seat in the back, I can't tow bikes, and I really, really love towing bikes. It also stops me from using the Go-Getter bag and minimizes the amount of cargo I can carry. However, it is nice to know that when the big guy starts getting squirley, I can buckle him into the seat and he's safe. Also, at the moment, with Big Brother on deck, he doesn't have his hand-dandy sunshade. I haven't figured out an alternative for that yet. The Pedal Powered Family has an awesome cover for their bike--they're pretty dang awesome on their own, too, check them out!
Getting home was lovely. Getting a nap was lovelier. One more quick ride this evening to return seven of the nine bottles of root beer I had bought for floats with the students. Turns out, root beer is a very American taste. It didn't go over very well. I threw together a milk crate and dumped the bottles in to ride the two miles back to the store. I feel badly for whomever opens these bottles. They got pretty shaken on the way over. I was really nervous with them behind me, expecting them to explode with every speed bump.
This is us. We're fun.
