When I got home I thought it was too nice of a day to let slip by and decided to take Jack to the park (he had napped at home during my earlier trip). During this trip the sun had finally broken out and we had a lovely time at the park (2.2 miles).
The Yuba got plenty of looks at the park and I overheard a few "check out that bike" comments. Jack met a little friend who kept him busy with his football. I was happy he kept his cycling hat on (took the helmet off) to keep his ears warm because the wind didn't abate all day. On the way home I had the sun in my eyes and the wind in my face which made for a uncomfortable ride. Jack didn't want to leave the park and was fussy most of the way home, but I managed to distract him by pointing out cats and dogs, luckily I was going so slow with the wind in my face that he had plenty of time to spot the animals!
Today my trip total was just under 5 miles combined, which is a record breaker for me! The Walla Walla Farmer's Market is about an 8 mile round trip, one of my goals for the year is to be able to bicycle there by opening week in May. So today was a good start towards that goal and I feel really pleased with the progress. Tomorrow I plan to get out again at least once and hopefully if Kyle is feeling better he can join in the fun. This month is our car free month so I think a grocery haul is in the present future.
