but when she laid eyes on the slightly less eco-friendly electric Jeep, all bets were off. Who could resist a pink Jeep? And really, Mom, how practical is a trike where we live any way? Can you go off road with a trike? And seriously, even in this economy, where else could I get a deal like this besides the Duck, Duck, Goose consignment spring sale?
Can't you just feel her joy? We stay very close (and, shhhh! we keep it in the turtle gear vs. the rabbit) so we can help steer away from trees and push when the wheels start to spin. She just pushes the pedal harder when it's spinning its wheel from lack of traction - doesn't work, but it's fun to watch. I didn't really buy it as work out equipment for myself, but it sure got my heart rate up as I hiked along behind her, jogging to her rescue when she was about to hit something or when she needed a push.
It was a good day! AND the Hogs won their baseball game!!!
