A ride for three

You know, Ada's dad has something really cool.

No-lah, it's not a Lamborghini.

If he had that, I'd use 'mid-life crisis' as an adjective. Not cool.

So what is it?

Heh.. it's a motorized bicycle. A family bike with tandem seats in front and at the back. One for Ada, and one for the mum.

How cool is that?

It warms my heart when I see them zooming by in the evening, always teasing us with a grring grring when they spot us.

Gooly will then ask for rides too. He takes the back seat. He is a bit shy to put his arms around Uncle A's belly, so he just parks them at the hip area. And Uncle A would accelerate (needs no pedaling, remember?), and the two kids have this permanent smile fixed on their flushed faces.The gentle wind would be blowing their hair.. it's really a great way to wind down the day.

Just now we were at the pool, when Ada came by as a pillion rider on her dad's cool bike. After some chats, they were heading back. So Ada waved, and when the bike jerked forward a bit, she went "Wooooahhh!"

Gooly giggled himself silly and said, "Be careful, Ada! Hold on tight!!'

And the bike went off, just in time for us to hear her echo of, "OOOOOOKKKKKKKK~~~ "

Really cute.

I *heart* life's simple pleasures. Riding with dad is one of them. Riding as a family? Even better!
