A family breakfast and bike ride

This morning, (most) everyone slept in, which was really relaxing. I got up about 8:30, and then read my book for about a half hour, by which everyone was then awake. We decided to make pancakes and bacon! (We don't often have that kind of thing.) (Leah was the photographer, as usual.)I then went outside to do the chicken chores. It was such a beautiful morning, and it was not too hot or cold. Then Dad stuck his head out the slider door and told me to hurry up because all of us were going to go on a bike ride together! And this was no small ordeal, with a two year old and a 7 month old! We got the bike cart out, and put the little girls in it. It was Hannah's first time in the bike cart, and she seemed to like it a lot. And of course Naomi was excited to have Hannah in there with her! :) There is a boat access to a lake about 1.5 miles from our house, so we all rode there. Then Mom, Naomi, and Hannah went home. Dad and us older girls kept going for like 2 or 3 miles, then I dropped off and headed home after deciding six miles was plenty for me. :) Dad, Leah, and Abby kept riding, and actually rode 10 miles!! So that was our fun morning together! (We went to church last night, for those of you who are wondering. :)

Also, Abby put pigtails in Naomi's hair the other day, and it was SO ADORABLE!! Though it's hard to get a picture of her since she's always moving and doesn't really want to smile at the camera! :)
