It was a perfect evening for a family bike ride. But to where? My husband's been contemplating replacing an aging Honda, so a Mazda dealership became the destination. No better time than the present to check out the Mazda 3, a car we've all admired for many years. After hours is the best time to look in windows and ponder sticker prices.

my bucket list—but we must continue our own journey in the fading light.

Pedaling, pedaling, I dreamed of that balloon...
