My first stop after dumping the boys, was to finally deliver a bunch of odds and ends to my mom--her tires that she left at Practical Cycle, a huge bag of yarn since she's gotten back into knitting, and a big stack of dinosaur books from the library that she and Big Brother checked out. You'll notice that I swapped out our old blue pannier set with my trusty milk crate and brand new Baguette (a half-sized Go-Getter bag from Yuba). This was its first real test and I'm already in love with it! That baby is a monster! Unfortunately, however, I do have to move the Peanut Shell again to make room for it. I had moved the seat up on the deck because Little Brother's weight was making it pretty tippy. Any time he fussed and wiggled, it would almost pitch the bike over. We'll be going back to that set up now and just have to stay extra vigilant about keeping him still.
We managed to have plenty of time to figure out the machine and get some work done. Picking up the boys at dusk was lots of fun. They were super excited to head home and chatted the whole way. I was really happy to have my Superflash back. I can't wait to get extra lights when the Christmas strands come in.
