Ride, Ride, Ride, Learnin' to Ride

There should have been a tune in your head as you read the title. Okay so we totally tortured Gavin the other night by FORCING him to ride his bike in the church parking lot. It was fun for 4/5ths of us (Owen is learning fractions at school), you can figure out who the 4 were. I don't know what it is about our kids that makes them hate to learn how to ride their bikes. Heaven knows they have the nicest bikes from the bike shop, not that huffy crap from Wal-Mart. And I can't even describe to you the love between their father and his bikes. Yes bikes, plural. That is a subject for another day. Somehow it has not carried over to his children. They are fine once they learn, I should say Owen is fine since he is the only one who has learned. But it took a great long while for him to even like his bike, let alone ride on it. So look at the picture above and see Gavin's saddest face and pray he survives this latest form of torture.
Josh took Owen up to Lambert Park in Alpine, they had a great time riding around together. Even our dog Cockleburr got to go. Have you not met our dog? that too is a subject for another day. Here is Owen ripping up the trails.

He's a mini Josh. So when does he get to take them all to Moab to ride, and leave you to go on a girls weekend with me?
