Photo: A baby’s first trip occurs on a bike instead of a car

Three days after Truman was born, he, Luci and I ventured out of the house to the farmers market on our bike.

The market is close to our house and allows us to take the river path, which has smooth pavement for the entire two miles.

I used a cam strap to secure his carseat to the bottom of the box so that even if we fell he would be secured to the box.

I’m excited that Truman’s first trip ever was on a bicycle instead of a car. He was unimpressed however and slept through the entire ride.

Hello! I have a friend who is interested in biking with her new baby. What is the name of that contraption/boat/wheelbarrow on the front of your bike?! Thanks.

Congrats to the McKisson family. I'm happy there's one more of you. Welcome to Earth, Truman!! Get ready, this place is nuts.

If he was comfortable enough to snooze through the whole trip, that's a good thing. Here's hoping that he was dreaming about future rides.
