Biker babe!

What an amazing Monday!!!

First of all, this was delivered:

YES, that's right- we are MOBILE!!!

Oh my gosh, I can't even tell you how giddy Jeffrey and I were 
to get this assembled to the bike, and strap the little man in.  I practically tackled the UPS man.  
No really... that happened.  It took about a half hour to secure it to the bike, 
and another half hour or so to secure a helmet that fit.  Here we are testing the seat in the alley, pre-helmet:
YAY!  His infant Giro helmet (also works well on those gnarly swings at Mitchell Park):

It's been more than a year since I've been able to ride my bikes with any regularity.  (Thanks, bedrest.)
I can't even tell you how great it felt to do this today with Elliott.  The weather was clear and bright and beautiful.  He was fascinated by the wheels, the road beneath us, and daddy riding alongside.  I can remember sitting in my own bike seat on my mother's bike as a toddler, and staring at the road whizzing along under me and the trees flashing past...  it felt so fast, and exciting!  I love that Elliott knows that feeling now too.

SO excited for next time.

    Oh my gosh, this is just about the cutest thing ever. That photo of little Elliot and Jeff is super amazing! I am thinking that I need to get one of these when Oliver is big enough. So cool!

    1. YOU HAVE TO! It's the best baby purchase ever. ever. ever. :)

  2. officially the cutest thing ever!!!

  3. I was all bummed because I was finally going to visit the Claassen Gallery tomorrow, and then I remembered that it's closed for Spring Break... and now I'm glad it's for such a worthy cause. :) :)
