Sunny Sunday

We are lucky enough to live very close to a fabulous bike track - where we can ride for as far as we like and almost never have to cross a road.

Playing with the 'sport' setting - action shots in focus
The girls love nothing more than a late afternoon bike ride so we took to the track, and I took along my new camera, of course!

This child spends more time upside-down that right side up!
We didn't ride far - that's not what it's about...

Bright eyed girl
In part it's about the destination, the local playground

"I'm a Jack-in-the-box" - surprise!!
They've been here literally hundreds of times, yet they never tire of it...

I don't need to do the pushing anymore...
And each time - someone has a new trick to show me, a new skill learned...

Time for a new bike, the long legs have outgrown this one.
A new place they can now climb to...

Where has my baby gone??
A new imaginary destination to travel to in the train.


I will feel sad the day they no longer greet me with squeals of joy when I ask "Do you want to go for a bike ride?".

They were looking at all their feet!
They're a lovely bunch - I know I am biased...
And because I know one day that time will come, I am making the most of each 'today'.

The End!

Beautiful Karen! Yes, looks like the big girls need bigger bikes, lol.
We have bikes here, but nowhere to ride them (not without loading them into the car (that really can't fit 2 kids bikes in the boot). As a result, James still can't ride without training wheels :( and has outgrown his bike. Might start fresh again with a new bike.
