a long walk in the COV

we took advantage of the gorgeous spring weather yesterday and went for a very long walk/bike ride/stroller ride all over covington.  we saw our church, the house that mama lived in until she was eight, ran into aunt rita & robin at the post office, picked up new books at the library, and visited a few of our favorite shops: stoney's gifts, all things princess & fairy and MK's totebags & monogramming.  on our way back to our car we had a little bike trouble...sam's chain popped off and i could not get it back on to save my life.  i had just given up when a kind gentleman crossed the street to lend a hand.  he got down on the ground and fixed it (it took him a few minutes as well, but he said he was determined because if he couldn't fix it then his friend would make fun of him).  i couldn't believe how nice this guy was to stop in the middle of his busy day (he was obviously on his way somewhere with his friend) to help a mama in need.  it was refreshing to come across such a sweet good samaratin.
on the go
mother of god
i think the mosaic neighborhood signs in covington are fabulous

our old house
taking a ride in a stroller can be exhausting.
