Bike Buddies

I came home with this bicycle seat for Scamp yesterday because the day before she cried when I left for a bike ride without her. I debated over whether to purchase a pull-behind cart or not, but when my cousin told me she had one and had trouble pulling it (too much leg work) I knew I didn't want to get a cart. For one reason, they are pricey plus I can't afford the extra pressure on my feet with the plantar fasciitis. But, this seat (and her helmet) were a big hit. She couldn't wait until we had it together and when I finally got out on the rode with her, she did not want to come home!! My mom used to have a seat attachment on her bicycle and at two or three years old I remember riding behind her. I really enjoyed it then, too.

My favorite exercise used to be walking, and I would have loved to push Scamp in a stroller. But, my painful foot condition prevents me from doing that. So, when I was out with her yesterday on the bike, I felt so blessed. It's going to be a great bonding time for us. We can't wait to go again.

How neat! I'm begging hubby to buy me a bike! The kids are old enough that we could all ride together now so we'll see. Maybe he'll get me one for Christmas!

Scamp's hair is getting so long! Amazing how fast they grow!

What a cute picture! I bet that was fun.
Maybe I should check out getting a bike, I'm pretty sure what I've had for years now is plantar fasciitis...I love to walk but have to get warmed up and not do it first thing in the morning. But for the last couple weeks I've had trouble with my ankle and achilies tendon, ugh. Maybe bike riding could be an alternative!
