Spent the Afternoon with My Daughter

It's good to have one-on-one time with each child. I think sometimes they crave that and I think it's so important to do that when the opportunity presents itself. Kinsley wanted to stay home and play video games with her Daddy so Fiona and I decided to get on our bikes and ride on over to the track. 

We grabbed our water bottles, our mp3 players, a knapsack, our bikes and we left on a little adventure. We rode to the track. Once there we ran/walked for a little while. Later, Fiona brought her bike inside of the track and rode laps. I ran/walked 12 laps around the track. During this process we laughed, talked, ran, smiled, giggled, and just enjoyed each other's company. 

Later, another Mom came with her kids who decided to run laps around the track. Her toddler was practicing learning to ride his bike. The Mom, well, she decided to skate 3 miles around the track. She had her rollers skates with her! How FUN is THAT? It makes me want to go pick up some rollers skates, knee pads, and a helmet so I can get my skating on! What a great inner thigh workout!

Anyway, when we were done with our mother/daughter gab fest we decided to ride our bikes home. Overall, we really enjoyed ourselves. Maybe Kinsley will want to come with us next time. But for now, I will relish the one-on-one time I get to have when I get it. 


  1. It's funny you post this today because just yesterday we were out looking for a bike for me so that I can go riding with Bean... She needs her time with just momma :) Love it!

  2. I think that's great you are creating some one-on-one time opportunities with her. Plus, bike-riding is fun and easy on the knees.


Thanks for the comment
