Pulled Liam (he's 6 years old now) for the first time this year on our Adam's trail-a-bike. Last year we put many many miles on that thing and this year it is just not cool anymore. All that aside, we had a great time on the floating pier on Lake Calhoun and at Noodles for dinner. I really enjoyed some quality time with my middle child!!!
Very warm ride...had high hopes of a 50 plus day way out into the western burbs, but got bogged down with the family in the morning (no regrest of course) and got started late. I sort of zig-zagged everywhere and learned a few new routes...overall a good ride!
Wonderful ride around Lake Independence. Independence Rd is a great and very quiet place to ride. I saw a Bald Eagle perched on a dead tree by the road. I was about 20 feet from him/her. It just was checking me out. It was kind of scraggly - maybe a young bird or diseased, but still majestic and beautiful!

Took Kian to dinner at Noodles & Co., Whole Foods and the Dunn Bros on Hennepin tonight. He had a decent ride....he typically dozed off a few times. But I think he had a good time. It was great spending time with him. I miss spending time with the other boys when they were this age. They all have different qualities and personalities - even at this early age.
Sluggish (i.e., not in the mood) start with the wind in my face and then got into the rythmn and felt good. Warning: Jackass alert around the 6.2 mile Baker Park Loop. Look out for inline skaters riding on the qwrong side of the trail!!!
