I am not sure why, but I have never thought of biking as one of my kids’ passions. However, it is probably the longest passion that my boys have had. Sims started biking well by the time he was three. He used to ride his little 12 inch bike with me on my long runs. Parks, of course being three years younger, started riding a bike as soon as he could get on one. And neither of them has stopped since! Sawyer rides too, but mainly to keep up with her brothers.
We have not gone out hiking yet this school year or on too many local field trips. However, we did make two quick out of town trips. First we headed west to Asheville, NC to check out Kolo Bike park. I heard that it was a pretty fun place if you enjoy biking. Upon pulling into the parking lot of the park, I was far from impressed and was thinking about trying to go find some free mountain biking somewhere close by. Thankfully, the kids thought it looked great, and they jumped out of the car. Overall, the trip kept the boys thoroughly entertained. Sawyer and I, well, we hung out and pretended that we knew how to ride bikes!
Our next trip took us east to Raleigh. We visited my brother and his family on Thursday night. Then Friday morning, Parks headed to camp at Daniel Dheirs Action Sports Complex while Sawyer, Sims and I went to the NC Museum of Natural Science.
Overall, two fun field trips days! Hopefully, we will get on some trails soon too!
