July 2009: Morning Jog and Bike Ride

This summer the boys and I have been enjoying taking a morning jog and bike ride in our neighborhood. We live in a Master Planned Community that was affected by the housing downturn and so we have a long, straight main street at the back of the neighborhood that is almost completely empty. After months of research (would highly recommend Jogger Mom site) and serious debate I finally found a jogging stroller that is right for me. I was amazed to find this Baby Jogger City Classic cheaper new at Sports Chalet than used on Craigslist. The salesman told me that he had thought the sale price was a mistake when he saw it. On top of that, it was a display model (that had only been out of the box for 2 weeks) so they gave me an additional discount. It was still an investment for me, the weird woman that hates spending money, but it has been worth it. It really pushes itself, turns on a dime, and folds up with one tug. I could go on but I'll spare you.

Owen is doing so well on his bike so I thought we would give this a try. Tate and Eyan are in the jogger and Owen rides his bike on the sidewalk. I can't believe how well it has been going. This particular morning was Mike's day off. He was not up for coming with us, but promised Eyan he would take him out in the cul-de-sac to ride his bike. Eyan is still sad that he can't ride his bike too on our jog like Owen. So after our jog the boys hit the street with their vehicle of choice. Owen his new skateboard, Eyan his bike, and Tate his little push car. Tate is hilarious. He has a tricycle he could ride. He could ride on this little car but instead he insists on running and pushing it. Why he doesn't just run without the car we're not sure. Owen is quickly learning how to use his skateboard. Mike showed him a trick or too. I didn't really know that Mike had ever skateboarded before. It was fun to watch them all have fun out front. Of course this all happened before 9:00 am since it gets soooo hot here (as you can see on poor little Eyan's sweaty face - all my kids are like me, complete sweat hogs).


  1. I'm jealous of your new stroller. I want one, too! I'm glad you were able to get such a good deal.

  2. I'm so glad you liked joggermom!
