Fathers day 2014

Mike, you are a good dad. Thank you for playing with our kids, being patient with them, and sharing all responsibility with me.

Little Red

A couple friends talked me into doing my first long distance bike ride with them. It was a blast.  The kids loved the hotel of course.


And I loved the bike ride. I'm not sure what Mike loved? :)
I mean, I don't have a road bike so I used my hybrid and I don't think I would recommend that for the next ride, but it was doable and still so fun.


The scenery was my favorite kind. Rolling farm hills. I just pumped my little legs until they were about to fall off and still every other rider passed me, except for this lovely, pink lady on an elliptical bike. Very impressive.
 It took me about 2 1/2 hours to ride the 35 miles so Mike and our neighbor Mike took the kids to the petting zoo.  UNFORTUNATELY they didn't make it back to see us finish. It's not a big deal now and I hate to even mention it because he feels so bad, but man by the end of the race I was pretty tired. I could see the finish line and needed those familiar faces smiling. I kept looking around, "surely they would be there!" Nope they weren't. So I cried inside and then life goes on.

 We got a lunch after and some pretty pictures.

  Our next one is this weekend. 60 miles. We'll see.
