Amanda's Big Yuba Adventure

While I've been hauling the kids around on the Yuba for about a year now (Including all through this past winter!), Amanda's not really tried it - preferring to haul them on the train. We've been having "issues" with the chariot of late, however, and so this morning she decided to roll out to dance and swim lessons on the great orange beastie....


Out the gate...


Loading up...


If it looks like no one is smiling, it's because they weren't. The kids were being their usual unhelpful selves getting out the door (and thus they were leaving late... as always...). Amanda's just back from a whirlwind work trip to Toronto and still fighting off a nasty cough/cold and was a bit nervous about hauling the kids on the beastie (especially up the bridge). Finally, just as they were just about to head out the door Amanda caught Keira scribbling on the piano with a pen...


Uh oh... I think I see someone cracking a smile...


Less than 100m down the road and everyone's smiling again. How can you not!? It's just so damn fun to ride together!

Sounds like a similar story to many of our family or personal bike rides. Running late, trying to get things organized, out the door, back in to grab what was forgotten... then when finally on the road, the stress just fades in the distance and the fun begins (as long as the little one doesn't fill her diaper)!
