Biking in Salem
Jaycoby's comfy ride. He loves to have a drink and a snack when we go for our bike rides. And we always make a stop at the park, so he is rewarded for putting up with our long trips.
We've found a new hobby that was entirely unexpected. Before we got married, Mike and I agreed that each of our most loveable qualities was that we both hated biking (aren't we lazy!). It was something we were glad we had in common. Well, lately that has changed.
It started when Mike pulled out his old bike from storage, so that the boys could accompany me on my longer runs. It's just not safe for me to run at certain parks by myself. Since Mike doesn't enjoy running, and Jaycoby just couldn't keep up for the long distances, we thought the bike was the best way to go. Then, we borrowed a bike for me, from my sister-in-law, so that I would be able to ride along when we went on our trips to Sunriver this summer. We also bought a bike trailer for Jaycoby. Turns out, biking is something we have really learned to enjoy. We go on rides 3-5 times a week and we don't even hate it :). On one of our rides this past weekend, we were talking about how surprised we are that biking is something that we have come to genuinely enjoy. Who would've ever thought!!!

My bike....thank you Mary & Jeff!!! It's getting a lot of use this summer.
