Once again, I sing the praises of the Xtracycle. The girls were at the grocery yesterday while I was left at home to manage the untamable energy of a two year old and five year old boy. They wanted to be outside but I had work to do.
Then the lightbulb went off.
Of the work that needed to be done, on that list was returning a ladder to my friend Aaron. His house is a couple miles away by bike and the Xtracycle is perfect for just such a job. Within minutes, we loaded up and were off. This is one of those tasks that is probably easier by bike than by car. The ladder weighs nothing and is easily lashed to the Xtra. We had fun, got in a little workout and checked off an item on our to-do list. Thanks, Xtracycle. My boys and I are grateful.
