We’ve been trying to get as much riding in as we can as we know the days are getting shorter and nearer to having to put the motorcycle in the shed for winter.
Last Sunday was a gorgeous sunny day. We met J&H and the Grands at a local park for a picnic lunch as an early birthday celebration for DH. Before we left and went our separate ways, Grandpa DH gave the grands each a ride around the park. It was less than 1/4 mile but they sure seemed to enjoy it.
Miss A, being the big girl she is and almost 4, was big enough to hold on to Grandpa by herself.
Wow, I can’t believe she’s going to be 4 years old in a couple of weeks. Time truly flies!
We weren’t so sure about Mr. O holding on by himself so he sat between the two of us and grinned from ear to ear.
The fields are turning brown.
Some are even being picked already.
Loved this sign at the end of a farm lane. :)
I wonder if they use this old corn crib yet.
Most corn nowadays is stored in a bin similar to this one.
We rode along this stream and bluffs for at least a mile. We could see evidence where it had been out of it’s bank when we many areas flooded back in July.
We’ve been past this old abandoned house many times and I’ve always wanted to stop and explore. But it’s on a curve along a major highway and there isn’t a good place to pull over and not get killed in the process so I guess I’ll have to settle for a quick snapshot.
Just another pretty NW Illinois backroad.
Happy riding where ever you may be headed this weekend!
