And what was in the box? I thought that someone might ask. But seeing as you lack curiosity ( or are being extremely polite) I will just show you.
Welcome to "the trailer". It is one of those things that you can clip onto a bike, or use free as a stroller type affair. Here it is in stroller mode.
And here it is showing it's many passengers. It was hard to make sure that the giraffe was properly secured, but in the end, it was worth it.
And at this point I would like to thank the many talented Mamoo for "the trailer". My dad is a dairy farmer and Mamoo is an employee of the farm. All of the feed and whatnot for the cows get purchased on a credit card. That adds up to a lot of points in the run of a year. And seeing as the cows only need so much in the way of stuff that can be bought with the points (very little use for blenders and toaster ovens in the barn) , there are a few points left over in the run of a year. Mom offered us a trailer for the bikes and we accepted. Thanks Buttercup and Belle (and 80 other lovely ladies). We have yet to test it out on the trail system (snow is just gone this week) but soon we will be going for a family bike ride, I am sure.
In the mean time, go back up there and look at the lack of snow on the front median. It is almost gone. Mom says that the river is very close to flood stage though (they live right on the river) and if we get many more nice day like the past week has been full of, then my parents may end up living on an island for a few weeks.
