Two weekends ago we actually had four days in a row that resembled something that we used to call spring. Last year it never really arrived. Midwest USA must have decided to skip spring in 2012 and go right to summer, as we experienced 80 degrees in March.
Let’s just say, we didn’t want to waste the beautiful weather God gave us. So, we finally got our bikes out for the innagural Williams family bike ride. It was majestic! Or something close to it.
Rooney hated the idea at first, mainly because we had to pluck her from her favorite form of transportation (the stroller) and she wasn’t so sure about sitting so close to mommy’s tush. But, once we got her buckled in and were able to get the pedals going, she had a ball.
And so did we. It was reminiscent of family bike rides I used to take with my family as a kid, and there was something about just getting on a bike and riding somewhere for the fun of it. It just made the world slow down for a little bit.
