Cycling Fun

6th July 2006

Kristine’s dad brought us a cool bike trailer when he came to visit us last week. So far we’ve gotten Analise it into twice. The first time she was shreiking because she didn’t want to wear her helmet even though she really really wanted to ride in the trailer. Today she was a little more compliant and wore her helmet so she got to enjoy a fun ride with me all the way to the grocery store. It’s about 1.5 miles each way with lots of hills. We had fun, but it was hard work pulling her up the hills. Analise was quiet most of the way to the grocery store, but then she had so much fun at the store I didn’t think I was going to be able to get her to leave. I bribed her with the promise of snacks and then she was quite talkative on the way home and had fun rearranging her bear beside her as we were riding.

Also, I went for a bike ride the other day and took a video of the climb up Shades Mountain which I do on my commute home from work. For some reason, the audio is “off-speed” so my voice sounds high pitch and a little bit fast. It’s too big of a file to download, but you can probably stream it using your broadband connection by clicking the picture below:

    Oh and I forgot to mention that if you make it to the very end of the video (it’s about 10 minutes long), there is a real cute video of Josiah at the end of the 4th of July celebration at my parents’ church.

    Brian, you are hilarious!

    We’re so excited to have a bike trailer! The first try at riding it was not a fun experience, so I’m very glad they had such a good time this morning. I love that Analise can go out biking with her Daddy now!

    I’m so glad Analise enjoyed the ride with her helmet on. I was there for the first attempt a couple weeks ago and she refused to wear the helmet (even tho she had liked wearing it while watching t.v.)
