bicycles and (almost) autumn!

on sunday mornings, josh has meetings before church and by the time he runs home after they end to pick up me and eleanor, plus swinging by any homes of the youth in our church to see if they need a ride, we often end up late! so today eleanor and i decided we might as well bike to church so we could be on time and save josh from coming home to grab us… just as we were out the front door with my foot literally on the pedal, josh shows up and is all, “waiiiiiitttt! i’m here! let’s bike together!” and so we did.
the weather is perfect for biking in d.c. right now… so crisp and cool. but not too cool. if you know what i mean. i’m just holding my breath waiting for those leaves to start turning pretty colors! ahhh. i could dance around right now i’m so excited. i’m in love with autumn. and biking with my little family is pretty swell, too. i love them.

happy autumn!

  7. we just got a bike trailer for our little 6 month old and we can't wait to use it…only problem is right now (at least where we live in salt lake) there isn't many places on the roads for bikes!

Your hair look georgous, isnt it great what a trip and come color will do? It makes you feel like a completely brighter person! Love the pics, fall, and cant wait for those leaves to change here in Provo ut as well : )

  16. Precious! Of course it's normal to take a break for a little bit,& have some alone time just to relax. I'm not a mother yet, but I'm sure it's tiring but fun at the same time, but sometimes you need a mini break from it all.

  17. wow you guys are adorable. family bike rides are so sweet.

  18. B

  20. Happy autumn! Looks like a super-fun day! E looks sooooo cute in her little helmet!

  21. does Josh have a calling with the youth… or does he just connect with them because he still is one on the inside? :p

    How sweet! I love the photo of Eleanor with her helmet. She's such a cutie!

  23. Your bike is really cool. Go green.

  24. I am SO happy about autumn almost being here! In Arizona we really don't pretty changing leaves, or chilly weather, but I still love the whole idea of fall!

    I'm also SO excited to take my bicycle out for a spin soon! ECK!
