Good Sport

September 20th, 2009

My girl’s a trooper. Her family enjoys a good Expotition and since Miss Mouse is still of a man-handle-able size, she comes along for the ride. And she does it with such enthusiasm! While she is still easily portable, she can certainly make her dislike of things known. Loudly. Ferociously. But usually, she’s totally game for an adventure.

Last week’s excursions with Grandpa and Grandma included:

Simmons Farm

Hiking in Bird Park

Then yesterday, my parents and I packed up the babe and headed out on the first-ever Venture Outdoors Tyke Bike. Seven grownups and four kiddos piled onto bikes and into carriers and set off on a seven mile ride along the river.

It was great! Perfect weather, mostly flat terrain, happy babies. Miss Mouse was a little non-plussed at first (I think it may have been the instance of the bike-rental place that we plop a gigantic helmet on her head before we rode out) but settled in well.

It’s such fun to be out and about with the babe!

Thanks for stopping by! We can all agree that motherhood is a wild ride, full of smiles, tears, and oatmeal in your hair. But when life gets hectic, it's amazing how far you can get with a smile and a few tricks up your sleeve. I hope you leave here with both!
