First utility ride with my daughter

Yesterday I got to go on my first grocery run with my daughter. In fact, our Sunday grocery trips is about the only time our second cars ever gets used.

As my wife gets a little more comfortable having our daughter on the road, I'll be more likely to be able to get rid of it. It was so nice when we only had one car.

Her helmet is still a little too big and I have a Specialized Small Fry on its way, which is 4 cm smaller and just the right size for her head.

What are you getting rid of? Your daughter? The road? Your wife? I'm so confused!

It depends on the day. Most days it is the car, though!
