A couple days ago I told the kids we could pack a picnic lunch and head to the park to play. And something possessed me to tell them they could ride their bikes to the park - which we've never done before. They were so excited. I decided to bring the double stroller along, too, because I figured I'd end up pushing the kids AND the bikes when they got tired. It wasn't until I was loading lunch into the stroller that I remembered their bikes were at my parents' house. Argh! We decided to bring Lauren's scooter and Owen's, well, I don't know what it is, he calls it a truck. They ended up riding all the way to the park, played for an hour, and rode ALL THE WAY back. I was amazed! And they fell asleep SO fast that night!
I've been meaning to drive it to figure out how far it is. Headed out to Costco now - I'll let you know!
*Updated: 8/10th's of a mile total - not too bad for their first "bike" trip!
