Our favorite activity on a sunny, Sunday afternoon in the Spring is to head to Moraine State Park and hang out. This year, with two of our three children being proficient bike riders, we decided to add a twist to things and declare a bike ride day on the paved trails. The problem....too many bikes and not enough room....the solution: a creative husband who took the bike rack that fit the car and made it fit the minivan. Marvelous! There were two bikes on the outside, two on the inside plus one bike trailer, a portable grill and food enough for dinner. Impressive!
The kids ended up riding for about 7 miles.....above, we are taking a break at the halfway point. They're still smiling!
We ended the day playing on the beach (no swimming yet, as signs were posted - but it was warm enough!) and grilling out. A stop in Ellwood City for an ice cream cone at our favorite ice cream shop (Berry's - cheap and good!) and we rounded out a very fun day.
