Dylan and his orange 16″ Custom Mongoose Duster bike – Arlington, VA.

We sent Dylan to a local biking camp this summer as one of his summer activities and he totally loved it. We started Dylan out on a push/balance bike when he was very young, so the transition to a peddle bike last year was very quick and easy. He didn’t want training wheels at all during the transition, stating that they only got in the way. This spring we put him on one size larger peddle bike and he has turned out to be an outstanding rider for a five year old. As a matter of fact, the very first day of his two week biking camp, the director moved him from the beginners class to the advanced class with the bigger kids and told us he was way too good to be in his age level group. That same day he and his new class went on a group ride from Arlington to DC (about 6 to 7 miles round trip!) Since then we have taken him on bike rides of over 10 miles. This boy loves to bike!! Here are some photos of this summers biking fun.

“Dylan and I hugging it out on my birthday weekend” – Arlington, VA.

I wasn’t going to make a big deal about my birthday this year and I told Julie that I didn’t want a big party or anything like that, but it is my 50th. Fifty…holy shit! I remember twenty five years ago making comments that I would be lucky to see forty… glad I was wrong about that. I’m also that my wife and family talked me into giving up smoking as well… my health has become very important to me especially now that I have a son. I plan on being around for a long, long time! Here are a couple of photos from my birthday dinner out with Julie at The Chart House in Alexandria and a couple of other pictures that Julie has taken over the past several months which she was nice enough to share.
