A Bike Ride

Tonight and tomorrow we're supposed to get a big winter storm, so I figured I better post these photos right quick. (Okay, I know 'right quick' isn't proper grammar, but it is accepted local lingo and sometimes it just feels right to ignore grammar conventions. And because I can.)

Last weekend my husband fixed up our bikes, which had been lingering in the garage with various quandries. We have this odd-looking bike seat for Desert Boy. He loves it, but it sort of gets in the way of our pedaling.

Henry came along, happy to have a chance to go exploring. He loves to run along the fencelines, sniffing for something interesting.

We went far enough for a little exercise, but not far enough to satisfy Desert Boy. He would have been happy spending an hour or two going for a ride. He might change his mind a little when he has to do some of the pedaling!

Henry got some of his puppy energy out. On the way back we stopped at the pond and he went swimming. He's got the making of a triathlete. I'll leave Desert Boy to train him how to do the bicycling part.

If you do much riding, try a trailer. I bought one to pull my nieces around - they just love it. And they are such slave drivers. If I try to coast, they scream "Pedal, pedal, pedal!"

Looks like a lot of fun. But, I'm sure it was cold too. Brrrrrr..

I better get back to putting up the Christmas tree and making chicken soup right quick!

Hugs,
