Too Much Fun

Back during our weekend in Portland, we left Violet with Jenny & Jeff while we galavanted through the big city all weekend---except for those few precious hours Ben spent on a BIKE! I can't tell which was more fun for him, the weekend getaway, cruise and all.....or the hours whizzing around the large yard on Uncle Jeff's Yamaha! :D He taught both his girls to ride.....though Violet seemed far less fearful in the end. Just looking at all the controls, flipping gears with you left foot, clutch with your hand, brake here, gauges there....it was toooooo much. I will need to get used to riding BEHIND first! That was hard enough!!

Ben said, laughing, when we'd made our final round of the yard, as I jumped off from behind breathing hard, "I must say, I've never been held so tightly!" I must've begged a thousand times in a high squeaky voice, "Ben, slow dooowwwnn!" I really didn't think I'd be that scared, but....I sure fooled myself!









Her PREFERRED method of travel!
