- Load the girls on the Xtracycle and head to Target looking for gold shoes and hair clips for family pictures. I could have ordered them from Gymboree when I ordered the girls' dresses but I thought they were way too expensive. Lesson learned - no gold anything at Target.
- Finish Frapuccinos and then load the random Halloween costume pieces and on-sale tea purchased at Target into the bags and ride to Gymboree. Find ridiculously overpriced shoes, tights, and hair accoutrements except that they didn't have WanYing's shoe size or Sasha's tight size.
- Add Gymboree purchases to the bike bags, load the girls on, and head back up the giant hill to the mall. Successfully purchase missing sizes.
- Head home with 10 miles of fully loaded, superfun girl together time thoroughly enjoyed.
Here's a tour of our new bike so you can appreciate her in all her glory:
|Superbright 70 lux lamp powered by the dynamo in the front wheel|
|Xtracycle sells a "hooptie" and "magic carpet" (safety bar and rack pads) for maximum kid-hauling awesomeness|
|She came complete with fenders and itty bitty mud flaps - fabulous!|
|Mud flap and dynamo-powered light on the back, too|
|WanYing's favorite way to ride is backward for optimum car-waving opportunities. It's pretty dang cute for all involved.|
