Proud little-boy smile on a man’s face

Grease-smeared, skinned-knuckle hands display

An object immeasurable in its mediocrity

Changed tire, fixed washer, working toilet

It matters not the object

The gift is in the giver

And love makes it extraordinary


My hubster is at it again, giving me one of his extraordinary gifts (in addition to the tires, washer, and toilet, lol!).

Watch this site to see this…







Become a hybrid between this…







And this…









He’s at this stage right now…






Mechanics are in place and working, and the basic structure is done. Now he’s working on the platform to support the seats for our two littlest ones. I’ll update with pictures of his progress. What a man!


More progress…






Hubby hard at work 🙂












Hubs is building the seats as I write this! He’s made everything removable so we can pop it in the back of our 15 passenger van and head for the trails without having to mess with a trailer. So resourceful!


Almost finished! We’ve been taking it on the trails for a few weeks now as my hubby tweaks the mechanics, and now he’s working on the enclosed topper (to keep the sun off of little heads and the bugs at bay, lol!).









Me with my two youngest 🙂










Multi-tasking mama…babywearing and breastfeeding while bike riding! And that’s my talented hubster in the background.

      I know, right?!? I’ve wanted one for a long time, but they’re thousands of dollars. And then a couple of weeks ago my talented hubby (who built our house, btw!) began sketching and picking up old bikes from the side of the road and from garage sales and friends, and then he started tinkering and cutting and measuring and, voila, a frame for my very own huggy-buggy! So blessed!

          When we were looking into them the only ones we could find for sale were thousands of dollars. My hubby said, “It can’t be that hard,” pulled out a piece of paper and sketched a diagram, and a project was born, lol. He’s just used parts from a few garage sale bikes and some scrap sheet metal and some other pieces and parts he had lying around!
