We went for our first bike ride today. It isn't super warm here (only about 4 degrees celcius when we went) but we just couldn't wait any longer. Shaune and I treated ourselves to some brand new bikes and I had found this bike trailer on kijiji last fall.
Last year Deaglan was small enough to still nap in the stroller so I walked everywhere. It was great. Now that he's raring to go he hates the jogging stroller and it is more of an excercise in patience than just plain excercise to take him for a walk.
He loved the chariot (bike trailer) and he looked so cute sitting in there with his little helmet on. We kept stopping to make sure he was okay. A friend had told me that when she first took her daughter for a spin she had thrown up. As for Shaune and I it was a pretty good indicator of just how out of shape we let ourselves get over this long Canadian winter.
We're looking forward to a fun spring and summer on the bikes.
