A Bicycle Built for Four



Last night a dream came true for me--we purchased a Christiania Bike. (See picture above.) This is how most Danes get around town, minus the pirate get-up. In a country where cars are HEAVILY taxed and bike paths are abundant, this was the perfect option for us! Today Aaron biked Ethan and me to a town nearby, with Chase jogging at our side. What made me really laugh was when Chase sat in the cab with us when he got too tired. Some passerbys didn't bat an eye, while others smiled as if to say to Aaron, "You poor man." We can cover so much more ground now that we have this bike! We are going to get a car seat that buckles into the cab, so Ethan and I can go on adventures together.

We LOVE your blog and especiallly your sense of humor. It is sure to get you through when you become sleep deprived or craving pine nuts. We are laughing at your latest description of Aaron the Danish Pedaler.
LOVE YOU SO MUCH!
