A Cool Thing My Dad Did

My Granddad passed away a couple of years ago at the age of 94. Yep, the Walker genes are strong. Years before he died, he would tell us stories, often of things from his past. The older he got the more the stories were repeated. One particular story was how he and my grandma used to ride their bikes from  Liverpool to Chester. He would always say, "it's sixteen miles from Liverpool to Chester". We would smile and nod after hearing that fact over and over, but it's something that stuck with us. Turns out it was more like 32 miles, but anyway...

About a week ago, my parents went to England (four days after we got home actually) and went to stay with Nick's parents for the weekend. They had decided that my dad and Nick's dad would cycle from Liverpool to Chester. They even dubbed it the Frank Walker Memorial Cycle. How sweet is that? Luckily, my father-in-law also documented the ride with some photos. Don't tell me their selfie isn't one of the cutest you've ever seen.

It's my dad's birthday today, so happy birthday dad! I think it's so cool that you were able to do that ride. xo
