Sunday afternoon bike ride.

I am ashamed to say we really haven’t been biking since moving. We have done a little bit around the house but that’s it! The children have been playing so well in our new house that we don’t seem to be spending much time outside. This last week was really really cold too. But this week we are supposed to be back up to the mid 70’s every day. So we went for a nice bike ride today after naps!

It was so windy when we started out James kept pushing his bike instead of riding. It is almost always windy here (thanks to the chinook winds from California), but we only had a few blocks to go before turning and then the wind wasn’t so bad.

Once we get on the bike path this is our view to the left and right of the path. Beautiful!

No make up! Don’t care! (actually I did have make up on at one point today…)

We didn’t see anyone else on the path today. Such a change from our bike rides in Denver. It was kind of stressful riding with James on our paths in Denver since there were quite a few people and many of the bikers were exercising and going fast. I was constantly telling James to get over and to stay on his side. This path is much much more relaxing (as long as I watch out and don’t get hit by James!!).

The bike path goes to what James calls Our Little Beach. It is really a sad substitute for a beach, but the kids love it.

I asked James where he was going and he said, “To that big rock in the middle that Levi and Lincoln went to.”.

So I helped him. He was very happy!

I don’t know what the appeal is to sticking one’s feet in very cold water, but it must be done. every. single. time.

I love the colors of fall! And I love this girl’s smile!

¬†On the way home we had to stop and admire James’ skid mark he made on the way to Our Little Beach. James is really into making skid marks, which means he goes really fast and then hits his breaks (and then I almost hit him!). It kinda scares me and if he does it on gravel some time I think he is really going to wipe out. But so far he is just leaving cool marks behind.
