This is what happens when Daddy's in charge...
No, Kyle didn't beat them for disobedience, he just took them on a bike ride along the Lacamas Lake trail.
I guess they had a great time until the end ~ and this was the end.
Kennedy has trouble looking forward and watching where she is going, so she took a few tumbles off the trail. At one point, she rode ride off the trail and was upside down, bike hanging on a branch and Kyle was fearful that she was going to end up in the lake. She didn't, just laid there, perfectly still, waiting to be rescued. No tears, just faith that Daddy would help her. Kyle was able to pull her up by her ankles while she clung tightly to her bike. She hopped right back on and continued her adventure.
Unfortunately the second time she veered off course, she landed in a patch of sticker bushes and got a bit scraped up. Still no tears...until Carter fell and then they were both utter wrecks.
Carter did great and had such a fun time on the ride...until the very end when he went to stop in gravel and his bike slid out from beneath him. It was a pretty bad fall ~ a badly scraped elbow, bruised hip and scraped leg. Poor buddy. And he wasn't dramatic about it all (insert sarcasm here).
You would have thought he lost a limb!
When the three of them arrived home, I was afraid someone had died. Thankfully all involved survived and were just a little worse for wear.
*disclaimer* ~ Kyle grabbed the camera and snapped these pictures all on his own. He thought it would make for a better story if we had photographic evidence. Aren't we the best parents?!?
