We like to Mountain Bike. That is, my husband loves it and he is getting us slowly into it, as well. Last week we all piled up in the car and went to the East Mountains, outside of Albuquerque to go for a ride. It was a rather spontaneous thing, so I was surprised that our 6 kiddos could have fun without the usual snacks, gear, extra clothes, etc. Take a look:
We put as many bikes as we could fit on the bike rack (everyone except the baby had a bike), and the rest we piled in the trunk of our suburban.
David and I took the 4, 6, and 8 year old on the bike path. While my two oldest stayed back to watch the baby. The baby is almost 2 years old, but we call her the baby, and probably always will…My 4 year old can’t really ride yet, so we put her on a scoot, the kind of bike that does not have pedals.
She got tired pretty quickly going uphill on her scoot, so she decided to take a rest and do a pine cone dance.
Here is my man in action after the younger kids were done and heading back to the parking lot.
Natasha had a great time walking around the picnic area with no one stopping her.
Lucille taking a much needed rest after her 10 minute bike ride.
At the picnic area I wanted to shoot some action shots of my husband jumping off a ledge on his bike. This turned into everybody jumping off and having a really fun time.
I think we are on our way to becoming a mountain bike family. I so hoped we could find a sport that we can all enjoy on different levels, and this might be it.
So, if you are ever in the area, bring a bike!
Have a great day, I’ll see you back here soon with a kid’s fall fashion shoot I did with my friend. So exited to share it with you.

Adorable pictures! It’s so nice to see a family being active together, and what a great place to mountain bike!
(p.s. found you via Design Mom 🙂
Thank you, Christy! The active part is a work in progress; Design Mom’s “Love Where You Live” has been encouraging me to do more.
Wow, it looks like you live in a gorgeous area. What a fun family hobby!
Thank you, Kelly! I do think New Mexico is one of the best kept secrets. 🙂
