for two days tanner has come up to me in the morning and in his inquiring voice said "bike ride mama?". looking outside at the cold, i dodged the first morning's request. the second morning, after hearing the forecast of two days of snow starting that afternoon, i bundled us all up, pushed the snow blower out of the way, and unburied the bike and trailer. it was just a short cruise around the neighborhood, ending with snowflakes covering my hat and hair. but it was a good ride.

(my bike, one of my favorite purchased possessions, a trek navigator from one of their first lines of comfort bikes many years ago. love at first sight. bike trailer is an instep rocket. i'd change a few things about it [such as the non-structured seat], but it's built well and it's certainly served us well.)

Look how eager and excited there are to get going on their journey! Poor mama! Were you all tuckered out by the time you returned home?
