How We Roll

The weather has been sublime for a couple days now, so I dusted off the bike and the bike trailer and we found the pump to pump up the tires. We were ready to ride!

Or that's what I thought til I tried sitting Chloe in the bike trailer this morning. It just wasn't happening. The last two summers, we would lay her on her side and buckle her up. But now she's way too long for that! And she still doesn't have enough trunk support to sit up and be buckled in the way the bike trailer was meant for kiddos to be in. So I jimmy-rigged her special tomato seat in there and away we went! I used the bike trailer straps, but that wasn't enough, so yes -- there are hair ties holding my child in! I don't know what else you'd expect from the goat people - that's just how we roll around here!


Our ride was fantastic! My feet didn't hurt at all and Chloe had a blast! We passed some horses and I didn't think it was a big deal. But Chloe kept yelling at me. I was trying to figure out what was wrong, and finally I asked, "Do you want to go back and say hi to the horses?" She said, "Uh huh!" How do you say no to that? You don't!....

So cute! It also looks like Chloe takes hydration very seriously - cute water bottle. Emma doesn't drink out of anything but a special training cup, so we take an empty one wherever we go.

I'm sure Chloe didn't mind one bit about the hair ties! It looks like it was a great ride! I never thought about putting the tomato in the bike trailer, you've inspired me!
