Just had to share about the super fun day that my family had today! And have to give some serious kudos to my kiddo as well.
Near where we live in SC, there is a relatively newer bike/walking trail that goes all the way from the north end of town to downtown called the Swamp Rabbit Trail. It’s been there for a couple of years I think, but we’ve just now gotten to the point where Tid Bit can bike at a rate that’s fast enough to make it fun for us too. We bought a chariot carrier (the pull behind kind) for Little Bit to ride and have been doing a pretty good amount of biking around the neighborhood the past couple of months since we got the chariot rider.
We’ve been telling Tid Bit that when he got pretty good at doing biker safety hand signals, staying in a good line, and pedaling hard that we’d take him to ride the Swamp Rabbit.
So today we went. And it was a BLAST! All total we biked about 12 miles and my little man didn’t complain even once. In fact he told us tonight that he probably could have biked “at least 26 miles or something more.” Doubt that, but good for you little dude!
We ran into the parents of an old college friend of mine on the trail and they mentioned a restaurant in an old Hardware Store near the end of the trail, so we headed up that way to finish off our adventure.
We were so glad they told us about it, because it was not only adorable but delicious. So I’m gonna say, if you’re anywhere near Greenville, SC, you need to do the trail (or part of it like we did) and eat lunch at The Cafe at Williams Hardware. It was a really fun day! Hope your weekend has afforded you some good family times too!
Thank you Natalie Merchant… and yes they are, yes they are!
