Tales from the Trail

Rob and I have been wanting to take the kids to ride their bikes on a little nature trail down from our house.  Both kids got bikes for Christmas, and they love them.  But bless their little hearts, they only get to ride them at Papa and Gamma’s because we only have grass:(

Cade and SG were super excited when we loaded the bikes in the back of the truck.  It didn’t take us but about 5 minutes to get to the trail.

They got their helmets on and were ready to go.  After 30 seconds into the trail, we realized this was not a trail for training wheels.  I was having to push the princess along.  Daddy took her bike back to the truck and she hoofed it with me.


It was so pretty.  We hoped to see some wildlife, but what did we expect to see with these two crazies?

We did manage to see one little black snake.  They had enough wildlife after that!

They had such a great time.  It took us about an hour to walk/ride the trail.  We enjoyed the exercise and the time together. 

When we headed back to the truck, they wanted to ride their bikes around the parking lot.  This was a TRIP!

Here are their biking skills in real time:

Cade was such a good big brother!  Here he is on his bike:

When it was time to leave, they didn’t want to pack up.  Rob had to pick up Gracie on her bike to load her up!

Cade didn’t want to go either.  He tried to convince his Daddy to ride too.
