The Bear Claw Poppy

Skylar went on her first bike ride today. We went to St. George this weekend with Brett and Brittany Allred who are big time bike riders and we definately are not! Our idea of a bike ride is traveling 2 blocks on paved roads to grandmother's house we go. So, I was a little nervous when they wanted us to go bike riding with them. We didn't even own helmets until today which they told us we needed and I am glad now that we got them. After purchasing our helmets, what I was imaging our ride was going to be and what we ended up with were completely different! When we got to the trail I was a little nervous because it was all dirt and hills. I am thinking to myself we have our 5 month old baby how are we going to do this?! Oh but don't you worry Skylar was having more fun than me! It was like being on a roller coaster and ever time Bracken would stop she would get so mad and start screamsing but as soon as Bracken started peddling again, she was happy. By the end of the trail and mainly heading back to the truck (mostly downhill) I was loving every minute of it too. Thanks Brett and Brittany for taking us there, we can't wait to go back.

Sky loved her first bike ride. I think we all would if we got to sit in a posh seat and have someone do all the work!

Skylar fell asleep on the bumpy ride.

Bracken & Skylar (what a workout!)

I was enjoying the rugged landscape until Skylar's posh silky pink chair came into view.

Too funny . . .
