A little ride

Hey! In March, we bought a bike for me and a stroller that can be pulled behind the bike for kids to ride in. We bought it awhile ago, but the other morning, I decided to take the kids for a ride. The bike stroller is also a jogging stroller. Troy was asleep, and I couldn't figure out how to hook it to my bike, so I just walked with the kids. It is pretty hilly where we live, and I was gone for about an hour and a half. We walked to my cousin Katie's house, and then to a park. It was so nice. Now, if I only had a friend to walk with me...sigh...So, here's a picture of the kids in the stroller.
They loved it! It's great, cause I can squeeze Haley in too! We got this stroller, so that we could go on bike rides this summer. Hopefully, Kyle will be brave enough to learn to ride his bike before the summers over! Troy still has to pick out a bike for himself. He's ridiculous, cause he won't buy a red bike, so it's been irritating looking with him. I haven't ridden a bike in I don't know how long, but the first thing I noticed in riding my bike, is that any slight incline is HARD! I will get better! I have gone and picked Kyle up from school on my bike, and he rode in the stroller with Haley on the way home. It was fun, but I was exhausted by the time I got home. Kyle kept yelling, faster, faster. Hmmm...if he only knew...Have a good day!

Why doesn't he want a red bike...I'm sure they sell other colors! Arwen just got her first RED bike this weekend! It's a boys bike, but don't tell her. Now we can give it to Noah when she outgrows it! How lame, I know, but red is her favorite color! Good luck on the bike riding...wish I was there to do it with you.

Troy doesn't like red because of byu vs u of u. He can't find one his size that's blue, or any other color for some reason...he wouldn't even buy a red lawn mower...good idea about the passing bike down...you're brilliant! Jake has a new red bike too, from Target...maybe they have the same one!

Troy cracks me up! That is hilarious! I just tested our trailer the other too. It sure is a workout lugging the little ones behind. My problem wasn't the incline(I didn't encounter any) but I had this fierce wind whipping in from the bay. There were times I thought I was going backwards. We're going to end up with some tight glutes if we keep this biking up. Nice job! That Hailey is soooo cute!
