The iphone didn't say rain. We at least had the foresight to put the kids in their rain jackets for the cold. It was wet out. A heavy, drippy, foggy rain. Enough moisture to be dripping off my Nutcase visor. Riding with the kids on the back of the Mundo felt like they had gained an extra 50 pounds. It was as if they were water-logged. Heavy. Tiring. It also didn't help that my cold is still lingering and trying to decide if it's going to come back or finally (please!) go away. My cold is such a jerk. It's a good thing that my kiddos are so cute and awesome. They were super happy to be riding. There wasn't a single complaint during the entire 6 mile ride to church.
After a great time with friends and playtime for the kids and chocolate cookies to bribe them to get back on the bike, we were ready to go. The weather had cleared up but I was tired so Jose rode home with the boys and I got to ride the Easton.
Truthfully, this post doesn't really have anything new to offer other than pointing out that my kids are super cute. It's been hard to be sick for this long, neither being able to stop everything or push myself into doing awesome things. Riding a bike is just about the only exciting thing I get to do these days so it's especially great that I get to ride everyday, even if they're just basic trips to get our errands done. I can't wait until March (we'd all better be healthy by March for goodness sakes!) when we're planning our awesome family camping trip to Beal's Point! Are you interested in joining? Contact me!
This is us. We're fun.
