Bikes

Fonzy and I got bikes to ride with the boys. It had been a few years since I rode a bike, but foolishly thought it wouldn't be a big deal to go riding. WRONG! Oh my gosh, when did it become so hard to ride a bike? We went on a bike trail and I thought I was going to die! And hills? Forget it. I had to get off my bike and walk it up the hill. No good. But I wasn't the only one, Fonzy struggled with the hills too. The boys would wait for us and wonder why it took it so long to get up the hill. It was pretty sad. We've gone riding twice....haven't been again. Of course the boys complain and remind us daily that we told them we would ride bikes everyday after dinner. What were we thinking???? We really need to watch what we say to them.

Hahaha, my butt was sore too! We had to get different seats, the ones on the bike were too small!

Nice looking bikes! Great way to exercise. We have a bike (my daughter's) that is collecting dust of course. I used it to show the kids I knew how to ride but that was years and years ago when they were small. Maybe it's time to take it out for the kids to enjoy themselves, hmmm.
