It was finally warm enough in Boston over the weekend to crack windows, open doors and let fresh air breeze through our apartment. Alice loved crawling in and out the patio door to peer through the bars (supervised!) and to torment the cats as they soaked up some sun. I so love this time of year when winter is safely (?!) in the rear view mirror and spring seems ready to burst.
We added another piece of baby gear to our arsenal this weekend. Since both Lee and I are avid road bikers we knew it was only a matter of time before we purchased some sort of bike attachment for Alice to join us on rides. Because we both have carbon-framed road bikes, the handle-bar or behind-the-seat style of seat wasn't an option. So after some online research and a quick trip to our local bike store we were the proud new owners of a bright blue Burley bike trailer.
And then yesterday, after her morning nap, we drove out of the city to a less congested area to take Alice for her first bike ride. Let's just say she wasn't the biggest fan of the helmet-wearing part of being a biker chick. Oh boy. She screeeeeeamed when we put it on her and even her guy or a pacifier didn't stop the wailing. So we just started riding! And she quieted down quickly as she watched her daddy pedal the back roads of Medfield and Dover.
Weekend workouts: Saturday - Crossfit = sprints + fireman's carry for a warm-up. And then find a 2-rep max front squat (125lbs). And THEN the workout... 25 pull-ups + 45 front squats (65lbs) + 45 kettlebell swings (35lbs) + 25 pull-ups. DONE! Sunday - Easy 9-mile family bike ride. Alice's first!
Helmet nerds. // On the road! // Rewarded for her first ride with a kiss.
