Memorial Day Family Ride

We hit the Jordan River Parkway Trail this afternoon for a fun 1.5 hour ride. This was our first family ride and given that Cami is 8.5 months pregnant I'm thinking a bike trailer will be a mandatory purchase in the not too distant future!

Kate has obviously outgrown her bike and will soon be shredding on a real mountain bike. Her Ibex Alpine 320K is on order and should arrive later this week. I'm curious to see her reaction to Lambert Park.

Alder is in good shape thanks to all the running he's done with soccer and is excited to hit the trails. He should have the legs to try some of the Draper trails (perhaps he'll soon become the youngest person to submit a time for the Clark's TT!) as well as move to some of the longer options at Lambert (thus far we've stuck mainly to River and High Bench).

The kids were a little disappointed that we didn't see any snakes or frogs but had fun nonetheless looking at birds and finding insects. If anybody knows of a place to catch tadpoles (if it's not too late in the season) and/or frogs let me know.

i've got a good bike trailer I won't be using much after this summer.
