It was a gorgeous day! Perfect for bike riding at the National Mall. We decided to go and rent some bikes and a trailer last Saturday and enjoy our Saint Patrick's Day on wheels. The girls were a lot bigger than the first biking we did almost a year ago. I remember them crying the last time and thought they would not this time. Well, they did but not for long. They were happy as soon as we took them out from their trailer and let them run around.

 Ooops, they were not ready. They cried while we were buckling them onto their trailer, partly maybe because it was hard to see with their helmets on.
We had to stop after two blocks to let them run around
And off she goes (Mikelle)!
Rianne liked sitting in the dirt
 a little snack/lunch
After some break we decided to try again and biked around. The girls enjoyed it - no more crying!
They were amazed by their first kite show.
There was a big crowd for the cherry blossoms and we didn't get to see them up close but we enjoyed saying hi to these lovely flowers
 We went to see some animals at the museums and before we knew it, it was way past nap time. Because of too much going on around us, it was hard for the girls to go down. Carl decided to take them out for a ride to help them fall asleep. One minute, two minutes, they were down! It was a success.
 We took their tents with us for their nap time. The girls snoozed for about an hour while Carl and I took turns biking around and getting to read my book.
The nap wasn't long enough but it sure did help to keep them sane. We watched some birds up close and Rianne got scared when the little bird passed by close to her.
Time to go! It was a wonderful day! It was even better for me since I got to go to a restaurant and finish my book while Carl took the kids home and put them to bed. I feel so lucky and blessed.
