Keith and I have never let having twins keep us from doing the things we love. Sure, we sometimes hire babysitters so that we can have some kid-free time. But more often than not, we simply get creative so that the boys can enjoy our favorite activities right along with us. We’ve taken incredible hikes in the mountains of Colorado with the boys in backpacks on our backs, we’ve eaten many delicious restaurant meals with them beside us in high chairs, and they’ve even accompanied me on quite a few marathon shopping trips (bless their patient little hearts).
Since moving to Southern California, we’ve discovered another activity we love—bike riding. We debated buying bicycles to ride along the beachfront because we thought it might be too tricky to take Matt and Nate along with us. But boy, were we ever wrong. We purchased an awesome bike trailer—the InStep Sierra Double Bicycle Trailer—for the boys to sit in, and they absolutely love it! Sure, Keith does all the work pulling them, but he gets a great workout, and we all have a lot of fun.
