The Family Tree
Now that christmas tree isn't going to walk home by itself, now is it?
Our little family made our way down to our good friends at Baisikeli - the sustainability organisation who send used Danish bikes to development projects in Africa. They're selling eco-Swedish-christmas trees to the neighbourhood this year.
What better way to get the tree home than in our Velorbis Long John?
There was a bit of brainstorming about how to get the tree... and the kids... home. Niels, from Baisikeli, and Wifealiciousness realise that we should tie the tree up a bit more so the kids don't have to chew on pine needles. In lieu of string, we just taped it. Lulu-Sophia looks on. Then Felix was put into the box to see if he would fit. He's loving it. And he fit.
On the way home we stopped to pick up some ice cream from the best ice cream makers in the nation: Paradis.
What better way to get the tree home but in the cargo box of our Long John.
At last we roll up to one of the bike sheds for one last corny photo before getting the tree up into the flat for prompt decoration.
