Fun Summer Night

We haven't been doing much outside during the day. It has just been so warm that the kids don't even want to go out. So, last night I wanted to get the kids out of the house. We got on our bikes and rode around a bit. Then we rode to the park and had a picnic dinner and played at the park.

It was a lot of fun for the kids. Bobby was working really late last night though. So, it was a lot of work for me. The start of the ride was rough. Evan had to be in the lead and he threw a fit whenever he wasn't. Then Dallin crashed and scraped himself up pretty good. Needless to say, there was a lot of crying and grief.

We got things smoothed out before the trip to the park though. That part was nice. Dinner was fun and playing at the park was great too. But then it was time to go home. It was dusk and we needed to make it home before dark. The boys were very agreeable and got their helmets on. But Megan wanted to stay and play.

I ended up buckling her into the bike trailer with David and hanging her bike on the back of the trailer. It was a bit of a climb on the way home too. So, I definitely got my workout for the day.

All in all it was a fun little outing.
