We went for a family bike ride again today. We went about 3 miles round trip. The girls were having a rough time. They each fell off their bikes a couple of times each. I think they are falling more because they are getting more daring! They went down little ramps and pedaled faster than they ever have before. They both seem to be mastering their fears. Both girls also cried for a second and then got back on their bikes after falling off. We were so proud of them!
On the way home we stopped at the local elementary and we all played on the playground. It's fall break for public school kids, so the school was deserted. Danya did great on the monkey bars! She's learned how to go all the way across by herself! Looking at this picture you probably can't tell that she had just fallen off her bike a couple of minutes before. Daniel did some pull-ups on the monkey bars, too. The girls had a race down the tandem slides. It's been a while since we've played on this playground. We all really enjoyed it. I wish we could have stayed longer, but Daniel is working overtime at work today. He had to be there by 3pm to work the swing shift.
