It is becoming our habit

When we left Colorado I decided that I wanted our family to do something together as a family each weekend.  Drew and I can fill an entire weekend with house and yard work.  The kids help and it can be fun, but I would not call it a family activity.  So far, all our fun activities revolve around serious activity like biking and running, which of course I LOVE!  The more active this family is the happier I am. 

On Saturday we decided to go for a bike ride that ended at a park where we would have dinner.  We ended up with four tickets to the Astros game (more on that later) so we postponed our biking plan until today.   

We headed out in the late afternoon and slowly biked 3.8 miles until we arrived at the park.  Considering Samuel still uses training wheels I was super proud of his effort!  The kids loved playing at the park.  They created some game that kept them busy playing for almost 45 minutes before we ate our lunch-like dinner. 

When Samuel realized we were eating sandwiches with cut up veggies and fruit for dinner he was slightly shocked.  He said, "this is dinner!"  He thought it was entirely possible for me to bring spaghetti and meatballs on the bike ride to the park for dinner...okay!
After dinner there was more playing including a game of tag, throwing tennis balls, and riding on the park toys!
After all the fun we prepared to ride home.  Of course, being a little nuts like I am I wanted to end our ride on 5 miles even.  So, even though the kids were tired we biked the long way home.  All in all it was a great evening! 
When we arrived home the reward for all the effort was ice cream sandwiches!
