My birthday started like any birthday. I was ignored and forgotten. When, later in the day, my family could avoid me no longer, they condescended to a family bicycle ride. We rode through town being sure to find the busiest streets with uncontrolled crossings. Then we had a pleasant time riding through the traffic-free bicycle trails. My tough little kids and my lazy older kids rode seven long miles.
I spent the evening grumbling in front to iMovie, trying to splice a little video together. I spoke threats as I tried, unsuccessfully, to legally add copyrighted music to my movie. I had to settle for the least lame, free music I could find. At about midnight, following the direction of my teen-aged daughters, I made final revisions, and I published the video.
Thank you, Nikole and kids for going on a ride with me while I careened dangerously all over the trails looking into the LCD of my point-and-shoot camera. Thank you, Dad for hanging out with me and drinking coffee while I made this silly video and gave you half of my attention.
Very entertaining! Thanks for all the hard work putting this together and posting it.
We loved it! 🙂
The kids were really good bike riders, and such troopers to ride that far!! Way to go Hale family.
Yes, we were wondering where Helen was. Hard working girl.
Thank you for the kind feedback, my most loyal commenter.
They are pretty good kids.
thank you for sharing the birthday fun! Looks like an awesome ride too.
