New Years Day Outing 2011

Today we decided to go out and get some exercise, some sun and fresh air. It's always good to get your family to exercise with you......but don't tell them! (hehehe)



ON PRAYER MOUNTAIN
Off we go to Big Cedar Wilderness Trials on Prayer Mountain in Dallas,Texas. They have 100 acres. The valley consist mostly of mesquite trees and cactus. It has eight loops ranging from beginner to advanced. (I got that of their website)

   
AREN'T THEY CUTE

So, my little ones brought their bikes, Dennis and I brought are hiking shoes. I really like to hike. It's a good work out. Though I didn't get sweaty, it was 40 degrees out there.  My face, hands and feet were numb. My son says "put your hand above your head and run". It didn't work!

OH MY, THAT LOOKS SCARY

  Doesn't that look exciting! Except, we forgot their helmets. So, there as no way I was going to let them ride on those ramps. The small ones, ok, but not those scary ramps. Can you imagine little Eyevy flying up in the air. 

HE WISHES!

MY LITTLE SWORDSMAN

He decided to play, oh, I mean use his imagination. at least I got 30 minutes in. Eyvette continued to ride for awhile. Now I wish I would have brought my bike, maybe next time.

HE FOUND HIS CASTLE
 They found this cool tree house, I guess the bikers made it. Josh was going to try to ride down. I knew he would back out, so I said "son go for it." Josh says "really mom", dad helps him up. Josh looks down with a big smile and says "no, I don't think so, plus I forgot my helmet." My son was never in to pain.I asked him once if he wanted to get in to foot ball and he said,"no way mom, they get hurt". I ask,"what about hockey", he said " mom they get hurt too." When he was about 5, he wanted to play soccer. They would kick the ball to him and he would run after it but them get excited about a flower he had seen and to had to pick it for me. He can use is imagination.


OH NO!

I'M WAITING PATIENTLY

 Perfect timing, it's started to get dark and we headed back home. I'm so glad Dennis knows how to fix things. I want to return and explore some more trials. It has great trials that I know I will enjoy and get a good work out.  I didn't get the work out I wanted but the kids had fun and that's what counts.

Mom and Dad I hope you enjoy the videos
