Biking Fun

We had a wonderful time bike riding as a family on Saturday. Rob is done with classes until the end of the month so we thought we should make the best of it while we can. Below you can see the results of ride. Cosette can ride with the best, however she is yet to learn that "hot dogging" is probably not a good idea until you have greater command of the bike. She was so proud of herself riding with one hand and waving at us as she went along, lifting her front tire off the ground and laughing the whole way. It really was fun right up until the very end. We were about 500 feet from the van when she went flying like a trapeze artist (not really but it sounds better).

The picture below is when we got home, her elbow was still bleeding.

The picture below shows the bleeding cheek... not much blood but it was really swollen for a day or two.

Cosette's final injury, she likes to show people this one, maybe because she can see this ine easier.
After hitting the pavement, crying, and lots of hugs she got back on the bike and rode the rest of the way to the van. What a trooper!

Poor Cosette I'm proud of her for getting right back on the bike. We love our family bike rides,but now we need something to put Sadie in.
