When R. and T. went to go see the horse, I noticed that R. had put the windscreen on the Townie, which I had ordered from Longleaf Bicycles, because they're in my timezone, unlike my other favorite bike shop, Clever Cycles, in Portland, OR.
I popped the Mini on the Townie, slid a couple grocery bags under the cargo net and A. and I went to the grocery store. A. grabs the windscreen, so it's a constant struggle to peel her little fingers off and park them on the handlebar underneath my hand, but other than that the windscreen does exactly what it's supposed to do: keep cold wind out of the little one's face. I'm betting that once I get the muff, I could put A. in a relatively ordinary winter coat and stick her in the muff behind the windscreen and ride the bike with her on a 30 degree day and risk overheating her. Should be fun finding out.
I put most of the groceries in the Maxi behind me; the rest went onto the tray. I've been trying very hard to minimize what I put on that tray because it impacts steering (I want a FR8! Workcycles claims its front tray doesn't impact steering.). I started out kinda slow leaving the store and sure enough, it took a few yards to figure out how to cope with the extra load there.
Before we went to the park in the morning, I took T. out for a walk around the neighborhood. This is a lot of fun, but he was coughing for the first half, and for the second half he kept trying to take his clothes off. This is a little frustrating.
