Ride like the wind

With all of this beautiful weather we have been having, we've been trying to spend more time outside soaking the fall in. One of these days it's going to be cold:(, so we are taking advantage of whatever fall-like weather we can! We pulled out the bike trailer after a long time of disuse. Eli hasn't been on a bike ride since he was about 10 months old. He was to little at first, then it got too cold, then I was pregnant. But now, Kamdyn is finally big enough to sit up in it so we decided to pull it back out. The kids love going on bike rides. I think the first time we went, Eli just kept saying, "!," the whole bike ride. It was so cute. Kamdyn just jabbers away most of the time, or bothers her brother (surprisingly it doesn't seem to annoy him as much in the bike trailer...knock on wood...). I love when we go on bike rides. At this point, it's new enough to Eli that we don't have to fight him to get in the trailer. He is excited to go. Plus, it gives me some much needed exercise. Especially since I am usually the one pulling the kids (in Brian's defense, he offers to pull them every single time. The bike trailer won't work on his bike, so it has to go on mine, but I hate riding his bike, so I always pull the kids. He hates this, says he bets people think he's lazy when they see us:) This particular trip was the first time he pulled it because he didn't give me a choice in the matter:)) I'm sure hoping this love of bike riding lasts a while. (sorry for the crappy picture. apparently I can't see the thumbnails good enough when I'm selecting photos to pick a good, non blurry picture of our kids!)
P.S. Is this the life or what?!?!? I sure wish I could get a ride in the bike trailer. Love that Eli is pant-less too. Oh to be young again:)
