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