this past summer i took a virginia road trip to see a few of the people who make my life happy. this was the second stop of my mini vaca… a day with my cousins and their beyond precious twins. we were at the zoo the day of the DC earthquake. crazy, right? the weirdest part, we didn’t feel it (i was secretly bummed about that). after coming home, we played hide and seek for about 6 hours (give or take) and then i snapped these few images of my cousin teaching his kids how to ride a bike. this is one of those small moments in time that make up this crazy, beautiful life. once you learn to ride a bike, you don’t really unlearn to ride a bike. it’s a rite of passage. precious little Ava riding down their neighborhood street with her dad and brother running next to her cheering her on. i look at these pictures and think how amazing children are, how we grow up too fast, how i wish i could freeze time and how proud i am that these people call me family. xo.
