we took a ride to the store!

we were planning on an afternoon ride and the Mrs said she needed a few onions, so it was an excellent opportunity to not take the car. The store is about a mile and a half away... on the way back we went over through another neighborhood to add a bit more distance... did about 4 miles I think, new distance record for the Mrs. About halfway through the ride we found our passenger had grown unusually quiet...

+1 big time.

Mine seems to doze a little but generally stays awake. He loves looking around at the scenery. He has been liking the bicycle seat more than the trailer lately though. This weekend he got a ride in both.

Congratulations on making it not only a fun ride but a functional one too. Feels so good!

Mine likes to holler things like "Hey mom, I can see your butt!".

The kids get more "interesting" as they approach 4 years old.

My kids have outgrown that phase, but I still yell it out once in a while to make my wife feel good

My daughter is exactly the same way. She usually falls asleep instantly, but the other day it took seven miles to knock her out. She loves it though....
