We purchased the helmets first which is a little odd considering I made it my whole life without ever wearing a helmet. We would wizz around Lanesboro helmet less all the time. I think we actually made fun of the city tourists that came into town with their helmets. Brett already purchased his helmet and I guess I have to be a good role model and wear one as well. You can be sure that it will be red and hopefully not too dorky looking. We found the boys helmets from Craigs list from a woman who had two that her boys had grown out of. It was only a matter of time until we secured the bike trailer. As of this past week we are the new owners of a Burley. After all the research it was the Burley that got the best ratings. The boys like the Burley, but hate the helmets. Mags took them on their first Burley walk and they even got comfy enough to take a nap. Brett has done a few short bike rides which were a little less relaxing for them but I think it had something to do with the helmets. Bennett did ok with the first try on, but as you can tell Ethan is not excited about foam cradling his brain.
