Watermelon Head

Here's Elliot... showing off his new, AWESOME watermelon helmet while he sits in our new-to-us bike trailer that I found on Craigslist.  (Thanks for the birthday money, Pops!  I found exactly what I wanted!!!)  Elliot and I set out on our first bike adventure today.  The big question was whether he was going to leave his helmet on or not--a deal breaker for us when it comes to bike riding.  We've been having him play with it and pretend to take bites out of it and I put on my helmet and we tap our heads together.  Anything we can think of to make it fun for him to wear it (generally he's NOT a hat kid--we can never get him to keep anything on his head).  And, today, as you can see... success!  He wore his helmet, we rode on the bike path, we went into town and sat at a coffee shop for a while, then rode home.  He fussed a bit a few times, but was generally content to watch the world go by.

Hey...did you have a blog on your like list about a lady who blogs what she wears...and it's all handmade? I was thinking I saw it on yours...

Serously the cutest helmet ever! Every time I see a photo of your little guy I just want to pinch his cheeks; he's a-door-bell (long story).
Looks like you're having some beautiful dog days up there. Get in lots of bike time before the cold stuff starts - LOL.
