My husband and I like to always plan a little Friday night activity each week for our boys. Last night we went on a little bike ride. It was the first time I got to ride my new bike! Even though I woke up seriously sore this morning, I had so much fun and I think biking is something I could really get into. It was so fun!
As we rode my Josh explained all of the hand signals for turning left, right and slowing down. It was so cute to see the boys (the three on bikes, McKay our two year old was in the bike trailer) practice as we rode.
We rode to a park and let the boys play a little bit, but they were more excited to ride their bikes, so we quickly got back on the bikes and rode on into the fragrant evening. Spring is so full of wonderful smells. Last night was mixed with burning weeds and new growth. I liked it.
I am starting to think of what I want to put on our family summer bucket list. I think I will add some springy things too, like puddle jumping, finding buds on trees, flying kites, taking picture in a blossom covered orchard and checking out the baby animals at a local farm.
The world is so amazing, and sometimes in my hurry to get to the warmth of summer, I skip over the miracle of spring.
Hopefully this year I will be more patient and let time pass as slowly as it wants to.
