I think this has to be one of my favorite new pictures! :) I think my favorite quote from the day was when the driver kept trying to give Mamaw her helmet (Katherine and I were already on another motorcycle taxi) so I told Mamaw to get the helmet and she says, "THAT is supposed to save me!?" Well, I agree that the helmet would do no good. They remind me of the baseball helmets that they used to serve ice-cream in at baseball games.
When they dropped us off at our apartment, I made the comment that it was very relaxing riding home on the motorcycle. Mamaw disagreed. She says never again. Papaw was impressed that we got her to ride, but your options at rush hour is either wait 40 minutes for a bus, walk, or motorcycle (most taxis are already taken).
We stopped a couple of times for different reasons. We stopped here because at this time of day there were no people here in this big open court. Normally, there are tons of people dancing and playing here. The kids thought it was fun to ride really fast in circles.
...they like to hang upside down
Near the end of our ride, we tried to get a family selfie onto of one of the bridges. I think Lauren was near the end of her limit by this point. This was her first "real" big kid ride. We rode 6+ miles this trip.
A 5 hour game of Monopoly ensued...and true to history, Papaw came out the winner! :) These kiddos are determined to one day beat their Papaw. I was tired just watching. That is some determination. Haha!

After a morning of hiking, we went bike riding in the afternoon.
And Jonathan tripled up :) Katherine is running on her bike trying to beat us
