Last night's, Family Home Evening!

The year that I got pregnant with Ayla, I talked about how I wanted to go biking that summer. I brought it up a lot. Kurt really didn't say anything about biking. I started to get excited for summer that year. Then at the beginning of summer I found out I was pregnant. Which was exciting! I decided to put riding bikes off for another year. Then Kurt came home from work one day that summer and said he wanted a bike. So he went and bought one. I was happy for him but at the same time I wanted a bike and I couldn't go! Anyway, Kurt rode his bike so much that summer. He actually rode in a bicycle tournament for diabetes. He rode 70 miles! I was so proud of him!

Well since then, we have talked about getting a trailer for Ayla to ride in and getting me a bike to ride. This past weekend we found an affordable trailer for Ayla and we borrowed my sister-in-law's bike for me. She hasn't needed it and so we fixed it up and it is my bike for a while until she wants it back.

So after we had our fabulous lessons on the gospel for family home evening, we did our activity. We went on a bike ride!!!!!

Here is Ayla getting ready for her first bike ride!
She looks so cute all strapped in!

Kurt pulled her.

I rode behind.
We took a ride on the Jordan Parkway. At first we went in the direction of Kurt's work.

We decide to turn around and go the other way.

We went until we reached a park so Ayla could play.

Here I am posing with the borrowed bike. Thanks Suz!

Here I am trying to ride the bike slow for a picture, about ready to fall over!

This was the playground there.

It was the perfect size for Ayla.
Most playgrounds are too big and I have to go on them with her to be sure she is safe.

She could do the slides on her own.

Ready, set, go!!!


How fun!

She even went on the tall slides except Kurt and I had to help her to the slides. This part of the playground was a bit big.

We had such a wonderful, FHE! We plan on going on a lot of bike rides this summer. That is unless I get pregnant sometime! Then Ayla and Kurt will just go on bike rides by themselves!

I love riding a bike! It is one of the most fun ways to get exercise!

Heather - Biking is seriously a great way to spend time with your kids. Those bike trailers are genious!! Kids love them - they work great for parents - It is a win win situation.

I hope you have lots of fun this summer biking with Ayla!
