Taking a European family vacation — FranklyStein Guest Blogger

Katie Europe Fam WThis week's FranklyStein is brought to you by Chesapeake Family Life freelance writer Katie Riley, who is guest blogging while I am on vacation.

A biking mom's worries — FranklyStein

Bike memorialFacebook reminded me this week that my husband and I finished our epic cross country bike ride from San Francisco to Portsmouth, New Hampshire 22 years ago.

The same day that memory popped up, we went on a very different bike ride. It was an 8-mile memorial ride for a friend's 20-year-old son who was hit by a car and killed while riding a bike in Baltimore earlier this summer.
