Bike Rides

I love bike rides.

We usually go quite often to the farm market that is on a dead end street off of our road.  

It's called Boughton Road.

I think all the people who live on that road are Boughtons or are related somehow.

I love it!

But, last year, I  was ginormous.

Then, I had that little incident of death knocking on my door.

So I wasn't able to ride my bike at all.

Booohooo!

But yesterday when Isaac said "Mom can't ride her bike."

I took that as a personal challenge to get on my beautiful old blue Schwinn given me by my wonderful Father in law years ago.  He also got me one of those huge cushiony seats!  I love it!

One time when he was visiting for 2 weeks, we all went on a bike ride to the Boughton Farm Market.  
It's in their barn, lest you think it is a high class establishment.

My Father in law got to talking to the lady who owns it.
Well, Justus took off with the kids but I decided to wait for Dad. 
So, there I was on my bike.
He finished up and said goodbye to Mrs. Boughton.
And started walking down the drive 
WALKING

WITHOUT HIS BIKE.

Hahahaha!  I laughed so hard.
So did he.  
Then he sheepishly turned around with a smirk on his face and got his bike.  
Every time I go there, I remember my beloved Father in law laughing at his own mistake. 
I miss him.

Anyway, so today when we woke up, I said 
C'mon boys, lets go for a bike ride!
Hopefully this new-found "exercise" business will cause much needed weight loss.
We'll see.

I do so love my bike.
Happy Summer in March!

This is how I feel about walking. I could walk all day long and never get tired of it, especially with my dog. She's perfectly trained and such good company. I'm lovin' the very temporary mosquito free weather. In a few weeks I won't even be able to make it to the end of our 1/2 mile long driveway without getting eaten alive. =0(
