Pretty nice out.  Brayden came with on his bike, and we hung out at a bike off road track for about 15 minutes.  Saw some goldfish in a pond - that was the biggest highlight.  And we got pretty close to a Candaian Goose without it chasing us.....

Hey Matt, It looks like your race was a great success on Sunday. The pictures look like you had awesome weather, and a good turnout. I really wanted to get there this year. I hope all is well with you.
