Cycling Through Life

Twenty some years ago 
we moved into our current house with two little girls. 


Several years ago 
a new couple moved into a house down the street 
and now they have two little girls also. 


Watching their family grow 
brings back sweet memories. 


Memories of when we were young 
and running behind bicycles too. 


 Am I that old? 
Let's see, the next bicycles I run behind 
will likely belong to the grandkids of my future! 


 I don't feel that old. 
But then I'm not running behind a bike either. 


 I snapped these photos while my little neighbor was learning to ride her bike. 
I think it is time to get them on a CD and deliver them to her Mom and Dad...
before they have grandkids!

Aw...I actually did that about 10 years ago with my first 2 kids, now teens. Then we adopted twins who are now 5 and running behind bikes will be in my future again...this spring! I can't wait! Great shots that I am sure her parents will adore.

Wonderful thoughts of those special memories! I, too, and looking forward to having grandchildren in my future and wondering how I will run behind those bicycles! A nice gesture to send the photos to the young father. These days will pass quickly by and he will appreciate the memories. xx

Hello! I recently just started a youtube Korean food channel, EasyKoreanFood, where you can learn how to make fast & easy Korean food! It would mean the world to me if you could check it out because I'm just starting out! Thanks!

Awww. This was sweet. I don't feel old either, even though it was a long time ago when I was running behind a bike. The daddy in this pic is going to love getting these!

These are precious, and sure bring memories of teaching my daughters to ride their bikes. I just finished teaching my youngest to drive a couple of months ago. Time does fly. \:-{

You're still a young whippersnapper in my eyes! Yes, you should definitely share these photos with your neighbors!

The little girl's parents will love having those photos. Dad looks so happy and proud and you can see how much the little girl is loving her new found skill. A beautiful series, Rebecca.
