four-wheeling

Doesn't Charlie look perfectly terrified to be on the back of this four-wheeler with me at the controls?  LOL. 

One of the other Easter weekend activities was four-wheeling.  My brother-in-law Chad brought his four-wheeler to our family celebration and although I knew my in-laws had at least 10 acres, I had never ventured out on them.  At first, when Chad took it down off the truck, I was pretty sure I wasn't going to get on it because I wasn't really dressed for it.  But then I remembered that my dad and I used to go three wheeling and ride on his motorcycle and I really liked it, so I climbed on.  At first I rode behind my sister-in-law Jessica, but then I took the handlebars and rode with Charlie.  It was really fun, albeit a little muddy. 

How often, in my strive to be proper and graceful, do I forget to have fun? 

It was a good lesson for the day!

Charlie does look a bit terrified, but I thought he was just playing it up for the camera. :-). What fun!!! I've never been four wheeling ... I'm glad you had such a great time!!!

Looks like a complete blast! Thank you so much for your call last week. Life has been a bit crazy since so I'm sorry I have not returned your call. I did however share the story on my blog tonight.

Sending you continued prayers. I can't wait to celebrate your news soon too!

This is such a great post! I especially love the picture; your husband is such a character! My husband and I love to take our four wheelers out on the weekend, but I don't think we've ever taken any pictures together. This might be something fun to attempt, even if it takes a couple tries to get the pictures right.
