Isaac was enthusiastic to go on a longer bike ride, especially for another ride to ice cream. There is an ice cream truck in Brookline’s little commercial district, but it is only 3 miles away.

We took Isaac mountain biking at Yudicky Farm. Friday evening, we invited Isaac’s older cousins to come with us. Sam and Eli compete in a mountain biking team. Jake and Ben ride with their family most weekends. Sam and Eli were free Saturday morning, but needed to be back in Jaffrey for haying in the […]
