bike trip

A few weekends ago we decided to spend the day riding bikes with the Donohues. There is a paved trail that goes from their house all the way to downtown Denver. The ride was about 30 miles and if you forget about the nasty smell from the dog food factory it was quite enjoyable. We rode to a little park and played for awhile, ate ice-cream at this adorable little place shaped like a milk jug, went to REI (hands down the coolest REI I've ever been to) and then rode back. (despite the snot on his face I think this is a cute picture of Grant helping with the bikes!)

Poor David had to pull the bike trailer there AND back (I know I know, I'm a wimp!) and later he found out that his back break had been on for about 8-9 miles! I was really impressed with how well he did considering all that was going on. All three kids were so good and seemed to have a lot of fun. Once we got back to our place we all went swimming, had dinner and just hung out. It's so nice to do fun FREE things like that. We'll definitely be riding this trail again.
Apparently I really enjoy pushing Grant in the swing!

Woah, your hair is so long! Love it. I wish I could pull off long hair. And while I'm wishing for things, I wish I had a bike trailer. We've borrowed Lindsey's before and it was so fun. If it makes you feel any better, I make Steve pull the thing all the time too!
