Too Short/Bike Riding

This weekend was way too short. Jeff has been traveling for business and has to go back again. It felt like we barely got to see him before he had to go again. We packed a lot of fun into Saturday, going to the park, the Dollar Store (kids' paradise), and another park for a long bike ride. Technically, James and Jeff rode their bikes while I trucked behind with Tyler on my back and Katie in the stroller. (Candi, you would be proud of all the exercise I got! :) James has become really confident on his bike and he rides very easily....and FAST! He can also ride for a long distance, quite impressive for a kid his age if I do say so myself. When we walk over to Grammy and Chappy's, he rides his bike all the way. He especially likes 'whizzing' down hills on his bike. Katie also likes riding her 'bike,' a three wheeler. The only problem is that she goes so slow that even snails leave her in a trail of their dust. To solve this annoying problem, we have resorted to using a tether system, where we pull her along as she peddles. We are just providing the 'turbo boost' she needs to keep up with the rest of us. ;) Tyler would like to ride a bike but so far he can't get his chubby little legs to cooperate. While we were at the lake, Jeff thought he'd be nice and let me ride his bike for a little while. I told him that the bike was too big but he figured that if he put the seat all the way down I could use it. Ha, ha! There was no way I could touch the peddles. Looks like Jeffrey the Giant will not be sharing his bike with anyone anytime soon. (He seems to forget that he bought a special 'for-tall-people' bike.) Enough randomness for now.....

I really love that you have to pull Katie along...I can just see her staring off into space, singing to herself while you keep the tether in line! It's like taking her to the flea market :)

Blade and Linkin LOVE riding over to Grammies many times a day. But lately Misty has started to let Tallen ride her trycycle over and boy does she like it! She arrives all sweaty but with a huge grin on her little two-year-old face!
