The Almost Family Bike Ride

The plan was to get home from work, pick up the kids, eat dinner and then go for a family ride.
I left work.                                Check
I picked up the kids.                  Check
We all ate dinner.                       Check
We got our bikes all ready.        Check
Everyone in bike helmets.           Check
Two year old in the bike trailer.   Fail
There was a small meltdown that occured when the front net of the bike trailer was being put on which resulted in Dad staying home with the two year old while my son and I went out for a bike ride. We completed 5 miles. He just learned how to ride his bike a few months back and recently got a much bigger bike. He is a great rider but is still getting his bike legs and practice. Instead of going around the nearby school a zillion times we decided it was time for him to tackle riding in the neighborhood. We have a pretty busy neighborhood so we rode a little slower to make sure everything was good. I believe it was a win win for both of us. He got another milestone under his belt and I got a 5 mile ride. We both wished the whole family could have enjoyed it but maybe next time will go better.
