Still a kid at heart!

I'll always be a kid at heart...... Why grow up?!?!?
Yesterday my kid at heart showed through.... It was a gorgeous day here in Minnesota. The sun was shining and the temps were warmer. A perfect day for biking!
I got home from work, quickly changed, and started cleaning up my bike. Luckily it remained in good condition and actually didn't need a lot of work done since it was kept in the garage. A little air in the tires and I was ready to go. Along with me, my daughter was also doing the same thing. We both were super excited to get back on the trails. We had a good half hour before dinner so I suggested that we try out our wheels and go for a short 2 mile spin. She agreed.... and so we were off.
She was a little shaky at first because she had just learned how to ride last year. But it all came back quickly. And I was amazed at her strength making it up some hills. And her speed.... she has gotten a lot faster than last year. I told her that she has improved greatly.
We got home both feeling fantastic!
After dinner, I look at my daughter and say "wanna go again"? She of course has no objections so we went for yet another bike ride. Both rides weren't as fast as I would normally go but it was so great to get out and be on my bike again.
Spring has sprung! The sunshine and warmer temps are finally back again!
