Bike vendors

I rode the "Loop" last night from my home down the Chester Creek trail through town to Westchester Lagoon, where I stopped for a moment to make a call. As I was sitting on the bench, a family arrived with a candy wagon pulled by a small girl's bike. The girls and their dad had made the cart the previous day. They were from Seward, AK, and the girls were making money for their school. I loved the entrepreneurial spirit: the two girls, mom, and the dad were all involved and so excited to be doing something constructive as a family.

Man - I forget to check your blog for a week and you get all productive on me! What fun to read through 4 posts in one evening. The candy cart is a great idea - did you get yourself a treat?
