Nate's shiny, new bike!
Now that the kids are riding bikes and scooters, we've been trying to go for rides around the neighborhood as a family. Nate needed a bike of his own, so we stopped at Dick's Sporting Goods last night and bought a new, flaming red bike. It's pretty basic, but for all the miles Nate is going to put on it, (ha ha!), it'll do just fine.
So far, the hardest part is keeping the kids from running into each other and us. I'm still not sure how often it's purely accidental and how often they're doing it on purpose, you know? (They really got a kick out of darting in front of me on their Big Wheels while I was learning how to use inline skates last summer...)
Right after this photo, we went for a little ride and got about halfway around the block before Noah blurted out, "I'm done. I'm sweating and I want to go home."
Oh please! Just because it's 110 degrees outside?!
What a wimp!
