One of the most common activities for the Browns is to load up a couple of bikes in Grandpa's truck and hit the road (or dirt). We have a few favorite places to go: White Rock Lake, Breckinridge, sometime Audubon, and Rowlett Creek Preserves when we are feeling brave and we want to jump off road a little.
Hyrum and Lindi are mostly game to tag along, especially if they get to feed the ducks or play at the park. We have a bike trailer now, so that's always fun.
"Feed my bread to the ducks? I don't think so."
I've done a couple of trails at Rowlett Creek Preserves two times now. It's become Grandma and I's "girls night out." It's terrifying, exhilarating, and just plain fun. It's also a wicked workout.
I'm so grateful for in-laws that are active and love to run and play with us. I'm glad for kids who put up with us and who seem to have a good time too. Hopefully, Husband and I will be the grandparents that run and play and bike and swim with our grandkids.
