August Family Photos: The Bike Trail

It's September already. That means I am was supposed to post my Monthly Family Portrait by now. And of course, I didn't get around to packing up the family and doing a fantastic photo shoot like I dream about each month. Things like pneumonia tuberculosis?, BSD returning to work, and oh yeah, laziness got in the way.

But I do have a family picture to share. And it was actually taken in August. Hard to believe, I know. I took it on one of our bike rides. We have an absolutely fantastic bike path right in our neighborhood. It's one of the reasons we bought our house. That and the fact that the beach is right across the street.
 

The ballerinas favorite part is to ride our bikes along the wooden bridge. Although I'm pretty sure there's a sign posted that the bridge is for foot traffic only. But I've never actually seen the sign. So we ride on it anyway.

We stopped for a rest. And a picture. I wasn't going to use this one because of BSD's unfortunate outfit. Not that we're all in our Sunday best. Not even close. But BSD was trying to work on a tan this summer so he bought himself some wifebeaters. Every time he wore one we gave him crap about it.

"Daddy! Why are you wearing your underwear?"
"BSD! PLEASE put on a real shirt. Unless you plan to start a new career as a NYC cabbie!" 

But he wore them anyway. And laughed at himself along with us. He's a good sport like that.

I think I'll photoshop a massive gold necklace in place of his maori for the picture I finally print out. And I'll send it to the casting director of The Jersey Shore. I'm sure they're looking for some new cast members for next season.

Have I told you how much I love this idea? I am hoping to be a copycat and someday soon try it for a few months!

It is sooo fun that it is not really posed but looks like an everyday thing!

Thanks for all the sweet comments! This family photo project is a lot of fun. Gabe, definitely try it out.

And, for the record, BSD is not wearing boxers. Although he has been known to try to pass boxers off for shorts many times. He's wearing a pair of surf trunks in this picture. They come down to his knees. :)
