While in Hood River, Oregon, we took an 8-10 mile bike ride with Avi, Maren's parent's, Uncle Brant, Aunt Aryn & her brother Joel. This bike road was the former highway along the Columbia River Gorge. It had gorgeous views throughout the ride and included a huge tunnel! Supposedly, this bike trail took about $13 million to make! (That's a lot of money right now Aveah, in case when you grow up gas costs $300,000 a gallon and a new pair of jeans is $2.5 million.) See, I feel rich, and indeed we are very rich to live in a country where we can experience such beauty and fun!
Avi's not in her seat in the front because she's asleep on Maren's back!
We found a really cool cafe that had a kid's section. After Aveah sat on Auntie Aryn's lap and got a story read to her, it was Maren's turn.
Grampy, Crazy-Lady Aryn (complete with bike grease on her face - where else was she to wipe it after having to replace her bike chain twice?), Maren, Avi (feeling and reciprocating the energy from Aryn), and Michael.
Multi-million dollar tunnel. Sooo fun to ride through - the wind was intense!
Avi pointing like Lewis and Clark did hundreds of years ago.
