Our new rig…
YAY! I’m a happy mommy today. 🙂 After much research and deliberation we purchased a new-to-us electric-assist bike (sometimes called an e-bike, or an electric bicycle) and a toddler-towing-bike-trailer. We got a super good deal on the used electric-assist bike and found the trailer on sale. So for a total of less than $450 we have a second vehicle. Granted, it’s only going to be good for half the year… but still! No GHG emissions, and an easy way for me and the girlie to get around during the day. I’m excited!
Here’s Damon and Lily-Ann putting the trailer together in the front yard during sunset. The wee girlie and I went around the block four times after it was all put together and hooked up – just to test it out. 🙂 It’s awesome! Can’t wait to get out and about. 😀
On a totally unrelated note: I can’t believe it’s April 5th already! Jeepers. Where the heck has this year gone? Soon it will be time for my mom and me to celebrate our birthdays, then it will be the Green Party of Saskatchewan’s AGM, and not long after that we’ll be full swing into Summer. Jeepers. I just don’t know where the time has gone. Wow.
