First Bakfiets Ride

Jarom bought me a bakfiets for Mother's day. I got to ride it for the first time today. I love it!

My mom and little sister, Renae, came with us. It was a gorgeous ride and perfect day.

The steering takes a little getting used to but already I feel much more comfortable on it.
Stopping to feed a hungry babe. :)
The boys were ecstatic when we saw a park.
Myra slept in the shade while we played in the heat.

Sweet baby girl

We played a little ball.

...And then headed home. The kids loved it as much as I did. Jimmy said it was so comfy he wished he had his pillow so he could take a nap. And at one point Glade exclaimed, "I'm flying!" We're all looking forward to many more rides together.

that does look like it would be difficult to steer! How awesome to be able to take all three kids (plus bags and whatnot) with you as you ride around!
