Glad you found us Tammy!!

Ok...mommy brag time here!!
For father's day we decided to ride our bikes to the beach.....now here is the brag part: the oldest (age 11) rode the tandem with dh (I've been booted to my single bike now!!) and the youngest(age 7) rode his tagalong beind my IL's tandem.....for 52 miles!!!!! We did 26 miles down, ate lunch and then rode back!! They did AWESOME!! No complaining for the 3 hours/20 min ride time AND the oldest had enough spunk in him that for the last 10 miles he/dh avg 20 mph and then the last mile kicked it into high gear so that "he could drop mommy and make her hurt"!!! (and hurt I did!! I couldn't hang on their wheel....had to drop back and finish it in by myself!!). The youngest came in with the others just a few mins later.
If you could realize how our lives revolve around riding you would understand the proud parents/grandparents yesterday!!
