Long long ago. When we had JUST found out we were pregnant, but hadn't told anyone yet, one of our neighbors was having a garage sale. Of course, we had busy busy Saturday mornings with Mark heading out early to play football and me in charge of Stoli's exercise while it was still cool out. So Mark stopped by this garage sale by himself to see if there was anything cool he could land. He decided that a giant hiking pack for the baby would be a great idea.
One look at it and I was like, I hope you like it. Because there's no way I could wear that. It would come down past my knees! So it sat in the nursery closet. Until this weekend.
I was planning on doing a local bike shop group ride with Tommy & Stephanie. Which left Mark in charge of Mia and Stoli. We thought, well, maybe he could put Mia in that pack and have Stoli around his waist and then still have his hands free. So we thought we'd try it out on the trails behind the house first. Before he headed out to the downtown lake with no one but himself to get him through the morning.
