The Hill-Pumper family hits the road!!!

Today was a rare occasion when all of our little family actually rode together. It was a short ride to the park and back, but was great to get out with everyone. It was my first real experience pulling a trail-a-bike, which proved a challenge until I got the hitched adjusted correctly. Still, a great time for us to get out and enjoy the sun.

My teen age daughter expressing her displeasure about being sweaty.


My old Giant Sodona mountain bike, which is now relegated to pulling the trail-a-bike.


My little Pumper happy about her first real road ride. She even was pedaling and letting her mom know we were in the lead.


And of course Mrs. Pumper riding her bike for the second time.

Nice group, now next time, make sure of something, you get someone else to hold the camera once in a while. Often families have an official photographer, and that person always takes the pictures, the result is, they never end up in any!

I figured that you guys had seen my ugly mug enough here on the forum that you did not need to see it again. Also, I do plan to get a picture of myself once I get to my final goal, which is about 6 more pounds as of Friday.
