Stroll along the prom....

Today was another beautiful sunny day so we packed the bikes and headed off for Grange-Over-Sands. A lovely Edwardian resort near to us with a nice long and flat Promenade, ideal for learning to ride! We spent the morning hunting down some more Geocaches, (managed to find two) and then onto the bikes. Before today, our two cherubs were unable to stay upright on a bike so this was going to be a challenge, but after getting to the stage where we would really love to go cycling but they are far to big to take on Tag-Alongs we thought we'd better get this cracked!! We could'nt believe it....after spending some time free-wheeling down a long grassy slope they were off, so we decided to try them out on the flat and they never looked back......literally....we had to run to keep up with the littlest hobo at one point!! Alright it wasn't all plain sailing with daughter falling off and then going all wobbly and not wanting to get back on but they DID IT!! So chuffed, we've spent ages putting it off because we thought it would be a nightmare trying to get them to ride and as neither of our backs are particularily good it just never happened, but after a bit more practice we'll be able to go into the forests cycling...can't wait!! Mind you, it's been so long since I rode my bike they may have to teach me!!

Crafty wise I am trying to get a set of three Seaside Hooked Pictures completed, seems to be taking ages and my fingers are sore but I'll get there. Nearly finished the third one and then I'll need to finish them off and find some way of hanging them....
