While Andrew and Peter attended the St. Patrick's Day parade with their band group this morning, Mike and I took the girls on their very first bike ride on the trail. It was a slow start getting Abby to be comfortable on the trail but eventually she picked up some speed and started having a good time. With only pedal brakes it was a bit hard for Abby on the steep sections so she and Mike just took it slow. Emma was happy riding ahead of everyone but kept mentioning how she really wanted a bike with gear shifts like her brothers bikes. Emma and I rode ahead of Mike and Abby and then we switched partners on the way back. The view of Pike's Peak after we turned around on the trail was so beautiful. We all had a great time biking together, playing at the playground and eating Baskin Robbins ice-cream afterwards. What a fun morning this turned out to be.
