Driving Ms. Zoe

We have a fun new family activity that is turning into quite the tradition. Riding bikes on Sunday evening. We got a little bike trailer for James to haul Zoe in and our amazingly generous friends the Wrights gave me a bike when we moved. So we are all set for family fun out of doors. Zoe absolutely loves it and begs to "ride da bikes" each time she sees them (which is every time she looks or goes outside). She also knows which bike is Mommy's, Daddy's, and Zoe's. To look at her in the trailer you'd think she hated it and only tolerated it to appease us. But the second we stop riding - at an intersection or when we've reached our destination - we hear her sweet voice telling us to "ride da bike!" When we are home and done for the evening her little world comes crashing down on her and she loses it as we put everything away for the night.


Tonight we drove to our neighborhood nature preserve, complete with a small playground. It is finally starting to look decent as the trees are filling in and the river is flowing at a pretty good clip. We had a great time together.

I can see that it is a double trailer, just waiting for Owen to arrive. And I can see that Zoe is already a little territorial with the trailer; hopefully she will let Owen ride with her. I'm glad you are having so much fun riding da bikes!

I love how much of a personality Zoe has now. Those are really cute pictures by the way. How cool that you have a nature preserve nearby. Payson is getting more attractive all the time. :)

I love nature preserves. We have our own little favorite getaway spot here too.

Biking looks so motivating until I remember how much I hate my butt hurting afterwards but the trailer looks so fun for Zoe! Bytheway, from your newest blog, you are so cute pregnant and when you were little baby with your brother!
