The local newspaper here covered our half marathon on saturday! i wondered who the photography was. Online, one pic of us made it into the online photo galleries. There's the link. Also, here's a link to the article. It does not mention us. but is still kind of cool.

These are not in any particular order. But I will tell you what they are.
Teaching Bigun to steer, pedal and brake. It does a daddy proud. That little pink bike is just adorable. And she got the hang of it after a while. The first time I wasn't holding onto her jacket, she steered herself right into the curb and fell over into the yard. But there were no scrapes and everything was ok. She did cry some, but then got back up and started pedaling again. As a parent, it's difficult knowing your kids are going to do something where they will get hurt. But that's the fun part of learning. You fall down sometimes, get up, dust yourself off and start pedaling again. Then when they get the basics it brings a newfound freedom, the joys of which are unparalleled.
I pulled out the old mountain bike for a little spin, and they were chasing me. It's fun to see them run. And I'm always surprised when the wheels still turn on that 15 year old mountain bike.
EG got a bit of a Michael Jackson effect from the heat grate at Wifey's dad's house in Raleigh. That wild hair blowing in the wind makes me smile. We're due for another visit up to see him soon.
