...a blast from the past

I recently scanned some more old pictures and came across this one from the spring of '91 or '92.

I spent our entire tax refund on wheels for us that year. Nate and I got new bikes and Katie got the trailer. Katie was at an age that she could have learned to ride a bike, but she wouldn't have been able to keep up with Nate and me, and she had long outgrown the baby seat on the back of my old bike. Such good memories of loading up the back of the trailer with a picnic and heading out for several hours of riding. Katie took along the dog, her baby dolls, snacks, and a blanket. It was a sad day when she was too long-legged to sit in it comfortably any more. Over the years coworkers have asked to buy the trailer from me, but I selfishly hung on to it. When Arlene became a grandma I loaned it to her for our sweet Jadyn, and when she's outgrown it it will come back to me for my (future) grandkids.

Jadyn, summer '09, enjoying a nap just like Katie used to do!

Domenicl, your comment translated to this: Hate a person, than to forgive a person, injured more effort. I must say I'm confused about what this has to do with my post about bicycles, but thanks for stopping by.
