Towed the trailer with kid for the first time

I just took a short ride with the two year old in the In-Step trailer. It was a blast. She had a ball. Everytime we rode past the house she started crying 'No Papa. bike ride'. Being that it was just a test ride I wanted to see how it handled and how she would react. She was ideal. I love it but it started to get too cold. She was bundled up and had a blanket as well but I was colder than normal so i called it quits earlier. She is still pissed. We are watching Dora so she may be okay in a little while. She is still sitting in the trailer though.

Every time my kids see the trailer they ask for a ride.
