In Our Way

I made a goal of riding 60 miles on my bike for my 60th birthday. So I picked out the morning where it was forecasted to have light winds and set off around the bike trail. I wasn’t feeling the best that morning, hadn’t ridden for over a week, and was starting to sort out…

Rock Wall

This past week our youngest son was married. It was an enjoyable week of preparation and so grateful to be able to spend time with our kids, friends, and family.
