Family Bike Race

ALL. SUMMER. LONG. Laila has been talking about and planning a Family Bike Race for us.  I am not joking.  Every day, she has mentioned it.  She had it all figured out.  We were going to all take our bikes to Cottonwood Creek Park and "race" around the track there.  She has reminded us regularly that we need to do it and we finally did!  
Everyone ready to go!  
 (I participated in the race, too.  Laila regularly reminds me, "Mommy, you don't ever ride your bike."  I want to make sure that since I am not in any of the pictures that it is on record that I did participate in this big event,  and I did ride my bike.)
                         Laila counted everyone down to the big start of the race.  And, we're off!!
 Love, love, love Isaiah's expression in this one
 The aftermath
 Do you think she had fun?
 This chick is a beast on her bike.  I don't even know how many times she rode around that track.  She never stopped or got tired.  She kept up with us and kept asking, "One more time?"  We have to get her ready for the Tour De France some day(can girls participate in that race?)
Afterwards, I took the younger 3 to the playground for a little bit of playing

 I can't think of a better way to end the family bike race than a trip to "Yogurt in Love"
 No one argued with that idea!
I do believe this will become an annual event.  I love it when my kids start traditions that we can continue.  I especially love that Laila thought up this idea and executed it all on her own.   Family Bike Race 2013 in the books.  Who knows what exciting additions we will make to next year's big event?
