Shorter Hikes Here We Come!

John had today off, (tomorrow too! Yeah!) so we decided that we'd have a leisurely "family fun" day by biking/rollerblading in the morning, and hiking the Mentryville trail in the afternoon.

With William's help John pumped up his bike tires and my jogger tires. We ended up going several miles on the trails around our home. Since rollerblading and pushing a jogger is much more work than biking (in my opinion) and since there are lots of hills where we live I was exhausted by the time we got home. I've been keeping my eyes open for a bike trailer/bike seat either second hand through zwaggle/freepeats/Play It Again Sports or a good deal through a store. If any of you see anything let me know!

After William's nap we headed out to In 'N Out for burgers and a shake. William has found that he loves french fries and strawberry shakes! He's never been able to get anything to come out of a straw, but once we put the shake up to his mouth he "magically" figured it out!

Then we headed for the hiking trails! Wait for us William! (He was a little eager to get started.)

John lugged William on his back for several miles before we turned around. I was not thinking, and didn't bring William's sippy of milk. He started fussing a little, and we decided that short hiking trips are what we're going to be doing for awhile!

We all had a wonderful time! It was a great leisurely "family fun" day!

Great pix! William looks soooo "grown up"!! Sounds like a fun day.

Hope everyone is feeling 100% now at your house.

Love ya,

You could try using the Zwaggle wishlist feature; that's what I did when we were looking for a bike. Happy trails!

Oh, he's so cute! Great family day! And I agree, In-N-Out shakes are the best. Good taste William!
