Biking

Our boys love to ride bikes.  Constantly someone is asking to go out and ride bikes.  Often, bike helmets are strewn around the house.
Recently we got a nice, mild day, and we took the boys to Waid Park.  Reid decided he wanted to spend his time on the playground.  Pierce and Cort decided to bike ride.

Aren't they cute?  I love seeing them active and outside - regardless of the season.  That's one of the nice things about living in Virginia.  It isn't usually so bitter in the winter that we have to stay indoors for long periods of time.  We have a lot of ups and downs in the weather. 

Readers, have you been able to get any fresh air lately?

We've been lucky with weather...so far....Last year it did not start dropping the snow until after Jan 17th. Hope this year is better.

I've always loved when children want to be outside, and your sweet boys look so happy. :)

They are adorable! It's great that they love an activity that's so good for them and that they can continue as adults. Fresh air for me consists of walking from building to car. I am wearing a boot again, on my other foot. Possible stress fracture, mostly preventive. :-(

Yes, we have had good weather lately. But not yesterday and today, cold rain today. I like getting out to walk. I love both pictures, both front and back. The back one is a bit more artistic, but the one from the front lets me see their sweet faces.

That is a really cute picture. Good idea on the bright orange jackets. I often wonder what it is like in Virginia.

Hello, Hope you are having a wonderful December and will have a blessed Christmas… This is such a joyful time of year for so many—but it’s also the time when others experience a deep loneliness, and struggle during the holidays for many reasons. SO—today I ask you to stop what you are doing for a few minutes and say a prayer for someone you know who might be experiencing a hard time now… OR—better still, send them a card or give them a call. It will mean the world to them.

Yes, we do live in a perfect area of our country don't we? Being in the middle gives us all of the seasons --but we don't have the bitter winters that they have up north. Glad your kids enjoy biking and being active.

Merry Christmas to you and yours.
Hugs,
Betsy

Oh, yes. Many cold and foggy walks.

Lin said...

Oh, nice that you get the chance to get outside and work off some steam and energy. It's been raining here---no sun in the entire month of December. I think I'd settle for snow at this point. At least we'd get outside to shovel!

merry Christmas to all of you!

Your sons look so happy on their bikes. My son have been getting holiday from yesterday for about two weeks. He ask my husband to accompany him go biking everyday. But actually his new bike is too high for him, so he have to exercise more and more.

I love seeing them out and enjoying the fresh air as well! Since our weather is nicer now, we tend to spend more time outside during winter.
Merry Christmas!

We had an early snow, but now I think it's so so so mild. And that's very unusual, but I'm loving it. :)

Annette said...
