President's Day Ride

Fun cruise today on the Sammamish River Trail with Ian and Amy. Also an excuse to give mom a few hours to herself. Ian likes to ride and Amy enjoys the Burley trailer - though she's starting to get a little big for trailer action. Noticed the lack of leg room compared to the last time we headed out. Kids grow fast. She'll be following on her own bike before I know it. That will be cool.

Ian brought along his GPS and we found two Geocaches along the trail. He's been into the Geocache thing for two years now. Sort of a high tech treasure hunt. More info at: Amy gets a kick out of it as well. It also gets the family out for walks and semi-hikes looking for caches - and hiding our own. Its fun how kids interests involve the whole family. I never would have messed with anything like this without his interest.

While cruising the trail, had a huge bald eagle fly by at a low altitude - nice sighting. I saluted as it went by, thought I saw it wink at me - not really sure.

Easy 12 mile roll with pizza to end the festivities. Bikes, GPS fun, bald eagle, pizza and kids - what a country.

Happy President's Day.
