N + 1 = Number of bikes you need in your life. Where N is the current number. This is my Specialized Sirrus. It’s the grocery-getter. The pull the kid down the street bike. The hang out with the family on the bike trail bike. The bike down to the park bike. Strava says I
@mrsshoo and I went away to St. Louis for a weekend. Kid free — we had forgotten what is was like to have an uninterrupted conversation at dinner. First – we took in a ball game. A really good one. The Cardinals took out the Reds 10-4. We were lucky because the next day the Cardinals
The Shoo family just got back from the US Virgin Islands. We spent a week with my in-laws, and my brother-in-law and his girlfriend. And of course Grayson was along for the trip. Lots of photos and video. Be warned: you’ll wish you would have been there too. I am going to try to break

Before Grayson and I toppled over the front steps we made it out this weekend to Pasfield for a couple runs down the small hill. He loved most of it. Not a fan of going up the hill, but loved going down. Love it even more when mom and dad had a snow ball fight.
