So, let me tell you about reason #137 why I love to bike...MOSQUITOES. I thought it would be a
stupid wonderful idea to take Riggs on a walk this afternoon rather than going on a bike ride. My legs were sore from the workout and 5 mile ride I did yesterday afternoon, and I thought stretching them out by going for a nice walk would be a good idea. So we put on our walking shoes and headed out for a walk.
We were just walking along, minding our own business, when they came, swarming us from every direction without mercy. I tried to walk faster to see if that would help, but it didn't seem to. They were getting thicker by the moment, so I decided I had had enough, turned around and ran home. Yes, ran. So much for a nice leisurely walk.

Riggy seemed to have a fun enough time, even thought they swarmed him too. I did buy a bug net for his stroller at some point...I guess I need to get that out and use it. Or maybe I could just go biking, and he could be in his nice, cozy, bug-free little buggy riding along behind me.
After all, there are lots and lots of roads to explore nearby, with little to no traffic (if you don't count four-wheeler traffic, that is).
Oh, and PS...
