I LOVE this picture. LOVE, LOVE, LOVE it!
This picture was taken a couple of weekends ago during our visit to Alabama. The daughter (Ella) of Richard's rack mate from boot camp (Lee) turned 3, so we were out there for her birthday party. Lee had recently purchased a motorcycle in an effort to save on gas money. He is new to the world of bikes and had only ridden one once before. I'm pretty sure Richard's bike still has a scratch or two to show from it. Excited to experience the joy of riding together, Richard loaded up his bike on the back of our truck so the guys could do just that.
After Richard and Lee returned from one such joyous ride, Shiloh decided she wanted to give it a try. Richard couldn't say no to his daughter showing an interest in one of his passions, so he quickly found a somewhat suitable helmet and off they went. From what I could tell, Richard only went about as fast as he needed to in order to keep the bike upright, but Shiloh loved it just as well, as the above picture shows :)
