Ok Happy Post :)

My husband and I bought bike trailers so we can start excercising. It is difficult to have time for yourself with 3 kids. We are always together as a family when not working so this idea was perfect!! Derek pulls the girls and I pull Brendan. I am so proud of myself because I wasn't sure I could pull my 45 lb. boy up hills but I did it. I never walked, not even once. We rode 2 1/2 miles to my sister in laws and then took the kids swimming for a few hours and then rode back home. It was such a great day. The kids had so much fun and we got some exercise.

Brendan LOVES any kind of movement since he is so limited in life. He loves go carts, bumper cars, roller coasters...you name it. He is already asking when the next bike ride will be. He was cracking up when we rode down a big hill. He was yelling out "go faster, car mommy, and take a right!". He was so funny. I love seeing him smile. I love seeing him enjoy life and I love figuring out things we can still do as a family while having a disabled child. Life is good.
