My New Car

I've waited ALL SUMMER for my new car to arrive and it finally has and I'm excited! We took my Trek and added an Xtracycle to it, basically extended my frame a bit and upped my load capacity. I can go grocery shopping now and not worry about how I'm going to fit it all into my backpack!
My new tricked out ride.

Ready for groceries, kids, coolers full of beer...

This is Oliver's new spot, we will add a handle bar and foot pegs for him.

My mom tried to snap a picture of Ollie and I on the new setup.

very cool Tiff! Can't wait to see it in person. Does Ollie like it? Have fun!

Oliver does like it but he doesn't know what to do with his hands or feet. I am sure that he will have a lot more fun once we get that taken care of. I'll give you a ride when you come up! =)

What a great concept! The perfect bike for doing that urban shopping thing and not having to drag out the gas user. Very, very cool. Congrats on a new, and extremely practical, vehicle.

After a few drinks, I may just be silly enough to try something like that! You better have your camera ready though because I doubt there would be an encore!

I was going to say...urban surfing! What fun for the boys, but I can see you on there, too Tiff...Looks great- it'll definitely be very useful. Does Ollie get strapped in or just hang on? By the way- the picture of the tree-lined street is phenomenal! All the colors! Miss that down here. We have green, then gone (if the leaves change at all...)
