Weekend Recap: Mom Time

Photo by Josh

After a relaxing Saturday of soccer, a picnic in the park, and a night on the couch, I was perfectly ready to wake up early on Sunday morning and dedicate 100% of my day to my wonderful mother. I got on my bike at 9AM and rode 7 fast miles down beach drive to meet them in MD and continue riding to church together.

We rode home and then to lunch with my brother.

portabella, butternut squash and goat cheese on a sandwich? yes please!

We rode to the bike shop where we picked up extra spokes of various sizes, several unusual tools and chain lube, and a new bike computer for me. We rode home and spent a few hours replacing tape, tuning up our bikes, and setting up my computer.

It was a nice preview of what I expect the summer to be like. Riding, maintenance, sunshine, food, and quality family time. While many mothers might have liked to spend a day in their honor relaxing, Betsy Shaw prefers to be busy and active. It was a perfect mothers day for my perfect mother!

I hope it's not too late to do some weekend reminiscing! Tell me, how was your weekend?


  1. Looks like a great day! Your dad's face in that photo is pretty funny!

  2. What a great day! That salad looks yummy!
    All of P's siblings drove from all over and surprised my mother in law for lunch. She really enjoyed it. And on Saturday we planted some trees in our yard. Good times. ;)
