Ridin' in Style

Deal of the week!! Jason found this fabulous bike trailer on craigslist for $15! Isn't that great?!?! Jason was so excited! So, of course, we had to test it out. (I know, I know, we need to get pea a bike helmut. That is next on the list.) Despite the look on his face in this picture, Pea had a great time in his new ride.

Ridin' in style

It was so fun to ride my bike again! I used to ride my bike all the time. When we lived in Boulder, Colorado, I rode my bike everywhere. There were times I would not drive my car for a couple weeks at a time. It was so great! (Especially compared to now...I spend about 1.5 hours in the car every day commuting to work.Hate it!) Of course, Boulder is such a bike friendly town as there are bike paths throughout the city and designated bike lanes on the roads. I really miss that! We want Pea to have an appreciation of the outdoors and fun activities like biking, walking, hiking, etc. So, that means we need to get back into the habit ourselves. Hopefully, pea will continue to enjoy hangin' out in the bike trailor so we can go for lots of bike rides this summer. As soon as we got home from our first family bike ride, Pea jumped out of the trailor wanting to ride his little bike! So, hopefully, we are off to a good start. Though,this momma jumped off the bike and almost fell over from spaghetti legs!

You should get to use the waterpark on Sunday as well if you stay on Saturday. I was told we could. I would double check when you go to book the room.

First, I am so glad we will meet in Indy!! Yeah!!!

Second - $15!?!?! That is great! My hubby and I have been talking about getting one of those. WE used to be really into cycling, but not now :( We ahve always wanted to live in CO. Same reasons...we love to hike, mountain bike, rock climb, etc, I worry about Mayna not being outdoorsy or having an appreciation of nature so I kick her outside here in gloomy Ohio any chance I can get. We may move again one day out west or south. We just prefer the active lifestyle.

Someone said the "fuzzy" look was the sun glare reflecting off the lense. My husband also said it was just the haze. I liek your are right, it is the same look.

What a GREAT deal!
We have one of those, too! It is so fun to take family rides now. Bella keeps telling me to go faster, faster!
I bet Pea LOVES it!! :)

It is hard to stay active with kids!! Hope he continues to love it

Luciana loves hers, too. We also just got one of those seats that sits behind you... that is her favorite! It makes me SO nervous, so Keith has to take her. We have been trying to do the same thing... get back outside to what we love with the kids. Lucy just had her first (very brief) hike via the toddler pack!

Miss you!

How cute! We actually want to find a bike trailer as well. So far the cheapest one I have found is about $150.00. I need to check Craigs list.

What a great deal! Awesome you are giving him an appreciation of the outdoors.

Great deal on the bike trailer! I keep looking too, might have to bite the bullet and just buy the $89 one at Wal-Mart before the summer passes us by!
