I like to ride my bicycle!

On Sunday, we went on a long-anticipated bike ride.  We had heard about this trail from some friends and were looking forward to giving it a try.  Where we live, there is a program called "Rails to Trails" that has converted unused railways into multi-use trails.  They are generally flat, scenic and well-maintained.

At the four and 1/2 mile marker, this one boasted a train carcass and some exceptionally awesome sculpture art.  In fact, I was so absorbed in the budding relationship between it and my camera, I forgot to read the plaque that sat at the base.  I have no idea who designed it, or what it's supposed to be representing.  My camera loved it, though, and so did the children!

We had a great time, but riding 9 miles is a lot for little legs and the trip home was certainly not delightful.  We'll definitely go back, this time armed with more water, and much lower expectations!!

The Mt.Vernon trail is beautiful! I haven't been in so long....such a shame because it's so close.

What a beautiful place. Your kids are so photgenic. I love the bright colors. Wonderful.

How is school going? Our first day was today. Feeling like I'm ready for a schedule again and feeling like I feel like sleeping in also. :) I am excited for this year and am in love with all of the kids' teachers.

When will your BFF be back in town? It looks like you are missing her dearly. I know how it feels. My dear friend moved last month and it seems so unreal. I just got pictures of them painting bedrooms. So strange.

Hope you have a great week. :)
