If you are coming from Building Heavenly Bridges (BHB), WELCOME and if you are finding me for the first time and looking for support after a loss, then please check me out at my grief/loss blog!

This blog is a series of anecdotes from our life after losing our first child, a stillborn daughter, then going on to birth the two other lights of our lives!

Bear is 6: serious, organized, my cruise director and my time keeper.

The Comedian is 4: She is pure comedy always doing something unintentionaly funny that I attempt to put into words.

Enjoy our stories, conversations, and delights as we embrace the lives of our second and third daughters without ever negating our first.

Show and Tell - Bike Baskets

Did you have one? I remember my first bike mainly for the totally girly and fabulous bike basket attached to the handlebars.

Well, now-a-days - it seems that they look the same, but are really make with plastic mesh type stuff and that was not a-happening for my girls!
EXHIBIT A - Plastic meshy one from e.bay!

SO - Faithful Nana and Papa went a hunting for the real deal! You know the kind that is acutally woven, hopefully with someone's hands!

EXHIBIT B - The REAL DEAL! Can you see the difference??

Oh Yeah - we are rocking the transport stones, sticks and ball scene now with our totally awesome and authentic bike baskets! Even if we are riding our bikes with flip flops on... *ahem*

Thanks Nana and Papa! You Rock!

I had no idea they still made bike baskets! I had the most awesome purple bike with a purple and pink flowered banana seat and a huge white basket with purple flowers covering it.

Oh those were the days!

Your new and improved basket is very nice indeed!

So cute, boy brings back memories!

That is so cool! I remember mine, and you're right. No plastic molded thingy will do.

Now I want to find one for Tessa.

I love the Quote above this post -- she's a clever one!

You know, I don't think I ever had a bike basket.

Extremely cool!

No basket for me but I did have this zippered nylon bag on the front of mine. Very useful the day we came across a juvenile crow who couldn't fly and had fallen out of the tree. Mom was SO happy when I brought him home on my bike. ;)

Great basket. We also had the no flip-flop rule.
