First Bike Ride of the Year!

This weekend was so fun! The weather was a little warmer so Brett, Garrett and I decided to go for a bike ride to the elk farm. I was excited because I had new bike shoes and Garrett bought and installed some new clips on my pedals for Christmas. WOOHOO - First bike ride of the year!

As the guys were helping me get clipped in for the first time Breanna said "Does Mom know how to ride a two wheeler?" We all burst out laughing. Seven year olds are hilarious! 

Luckily we bundled up so it wasn't too terribly cold.  I biffed it twice before I got the hang of my new shoes. Have you ever had your feet stuck in your pedals and fallen over sideways?! Needless to say, it was pretty funny. Almost like watching cartoons - I'm sure! My knee got pretty banged up and my wrist is sore but after the first five minutes I was getting the hang of the new pedals and locking in and out. All of this practice and experimenting plus the strong wind made the ride to the elk pretty slow! Poor Garrett! Having to wait for your parents does not make for a fun ride!
 Here's Brett and I at the elk farm - too bad you can't see my bloody knee!

This is one of the three of us! Can you see the elk in the background?
Garrett and Brett - I love G's i-phone, because without it we wouldn't have snapped these pics!

While we were out riding, Luke & Kelsey and the kids were getting some cute photos taken out in the yard. Jessica was their photographer!  I scrapped one of my favorite photos.

Of course they got lot's of fabulous photos so watch for more layouts with their fun pics!

Thanks for stopping by.

Wow, I think that's awesome about the bike riding. That would scare me to death being clipped in & falling over sideways!
