Mother's day bike ride

LiLi had a bad fall from her bike while learning to ride when she was younger & didn't want to try it anymore.  Jessie & I have been working on her the last couple years to get her riding a bike......every kid should know how to ride a bike!
On Mother's day we started our usual "spiel" & what do you know she said she would try it.  We made her sign on the dotted line & we were off to the store in the blink of an eye before she could change her mind.  We picked out some really cool bikes but she wanted this "plain jane no frills" one.  She even took the streamers off the handlebars!
Thank god for Jessie & Tyler running along on either side of her so she didn't fall

She's getting it!
"By jove I think she's got it"

This look on her face was worth every penny I spent!
We had resorted to bribery when she was getting frustrated.  Told her we would all ride bikes over to Marcellas for ice cream.
What a motley crew we were. Mark, Tyler & I were riding bikes.  Jessie, with Molly on a leash, was running along LiLi so she stayed out of the middle of the street & didn't fall.  Popster & Dani drove over.
Here we were. Wearing a couple layers because it was so cold & windy ordering ice cream?
We were the only ones sitting outside eating ice cream cones
Yes.......she ate the whole thing!!!  Bike riding is a lot of work!


  1. WEll done LiLi that's brilliant and your new bike is gorgeous. ha ha Ice cream on a freezing cold day is something we would do.
    Bike riding is so much much fun i'm so glad she got it and sadly Im sire there might be a scrape or too even now...I still get a couple LOL

    1. Oh yeah......I almost got one on the way home when I discovered my brakes didn't work! Whoops!

Happy birthday to my big brother Terry...........have a wonderful day!

Snowy day in the park

I have an abundance of snow pics.  Between last Thurs & Monday we had 20 inches of snow!  We are so done with this white stuff!
 But I do have to admit it is pretty

 Makes for great pictures
 And you'll see from the next few pics how much Molly loves it!

   We take a two second pause.....
 ......& off again

 I do hope the hornets went to Florida for the winter

 This sums up the whole walk!


We went to JoAnne & Peter's for thanksgiving this year.  They were cooking dinner & Josh & Carol were going to be there
 Molly is always game for a road trip!

 It was gray , gloomy day & kinda chilly by the river
 Sadie is such a cutie
 We couldn't get Addie to pose as cute
 Josh got there first as Carol had to work......these dogs just love him

 I forgot to take pics of the table but everything was so good & JoAnne made apple pie!
 We spent the night & left for home after breakfast on Friday.  Our GPS sent us home a different way & we crossed the Tappan Zee bridge.  They are building a new one so lots of work going on

 One of those big cranes toppled over a few weeks ago.....they are so tall
 Look at the size of that one!
 As you know I love bridges
