Quality Family Time

I rode part of the Chief Ladiga Trail in Alabama today with my parents. Full post TK, but here’s a quick photo of us, windswept but happy,  after the ride (thank goodness for self-timers). Was especially proud of my mom for going 13 miles on her first long ride on her new bike, and especially grateful to my friend P for loaning me the Dahon yet again.

After the jump, a quick taste of small-town Alabama. (I kid because I love.)

Almost as classic as the sadly defunct Quintard Mall store "NASCAR and Knives."

    Such a great picture of you and your parents! 13 miles is a great ride, especially after not riding for so long.

    Lovely Easter message. The South’s keeping it classy, as always.

    We did the family portrait self-timer thing on Easter Sunday.

    Sometimes it’s a PITA, but it made for great fun.

    Love the snap of the painted wall. One of my favorite signs from our days in Maine was the beer-sponsored “Welcome, Hunters!” one that went up every fall. An interesting combination there too…
