My husband began a yearly tradition a few years ago. He spends one weekend in October doing an overnight biking and camping trip with one or more of the kids. This year, he took our 2 youngest kids on the biking adventure along the C&O Canal. While they only biked about 6 miles in and 6 miles back out, they had a blast. I sent them with an old iPod with a camera (I figured that would be lighter and easier to carry along than a camera) and was totally impressed by the pictures they captured on their bike ride.
What a beautiful area we live in and what a gorgeous time of year!
Biking Along the C&O Canal Trail with Dad 2014
AJ (9) and Reese (11) joined Dad this year on the bike trail. They were so excited about their bike and camping trip. They had been talking about it for days. When the day finally came, they woke up early and rode their bikes around the neighborhood while Dad finished up packing and prepping for the camping trip. I think they’re already counting down the days til their next overnight biking trip!
PS – all of these pictures are unedited, straight from the iPod shots. They kind of make me want to tag along on their next ride…with a camera instead of a bike, of course!
