Family Bike Riding!

We went bike riding this weekend! It was so much fun!! It felt good for Jim and I to get a little exercise! There are many trails around our home. They are so pretty to ride on and they are safe!! 

We thought this would be a wonderful idea now that Sarah is riding a bike! Once she saw that Anna was getting to ride in the Burley she wanted to get in there, too. We tried to let her know how cool it is that she can ride a bike. We let her have a try inside it and a brief trip around the block but she is too heavy to pull for a longer distance (and together they are over the weight limit). 

So often we think we are doing such good things but really you never know how the kids will react. We just have to persevere through some of it and stay on course. ( I think that is why I was frustrated this weekend- we just couldn't seem to please her) They will work it all out in their head somehow! We can't make our darling daughter younger or smaller- we love her just the way she is! I know she would like to be younger and smaller and to have those baby opportunities with her family but it is, as it is! So we will make the best of it and enjoy our time together!

Everyone did rally and had fun! It's always a good idea to bring a snack and a thermos with your name on it, especially if your name is SARAH or ANNA!!
