My car broke down and we don't really have the money to fix it, so my new vehicle is my bike and bike trailer. This morning I decided that I was going to take Emma to school in the bike trailer to see if I could do it. It is only 2.5 miles there but it is all down hill. So it only took me 12 minutes to get there. I have been procrastinating doing it because I was afraid of pulling the bike trailer back up the evil hill. Well, I did it, I made it home without dying. And the best part is, I didnt even stop to walk the bike up the hill at all. There was a girl on the bike trail ahead of me and I am so competative that I had to make it farther than her up the hill before stopping...well, needless to say she made it 3/4 of the way up the hill and when I got to where she stopped I decided that I was almost there and I was going to keep going and get a good workout. My lungs were burning and I was talking to myself the last little bit saying 'go tamber go, go tamber go'. I am sure that if anyone heard me they were probably thinking I was crazy, but mentally that was the only way I could do it.
Anyways, here are some pictures of Marcus. He fell asleep toward the end of the bike ride. It was really cute.
