Several things came together in the Fall that opened the door to regular family bicycle rides.
- Julia learned how to ride her bicycle without training wheels making it possible for her to go long distances in a short amount of time
- Emma's birthday present from us was the special tomato sitter (which we bought so she could join us at the table for dinner)
- A friend gave us a bicycle trailer that can be used with the special tomato sitter making it possible for Emma to join us on long rides
- We now live in an area with great bicycle trails less than 30 minutes away
I was so glad I had my camera along because we caught some really great photos. Here are two of my favorites:
After our ride along the river we rode to the front of the Art Museum to run up the steps like Rocky! The girls loved it. Julia gave me a Rocky pose even though she has no idea about Rocky Balboa. I'll have to add it to the list of movies for our family movie night - but it will be a few years before the girls are at an appropriate age to watch it.
