Bike Ride

Hello, readers! So, I decided, I should probably get back into posting a little more often... It's so hard though, because there are so many things to do, and hundreds of adventures to be had, who wants to write blog posts? Anyways... yesterday, Robin, Dan, and I went on a 50ish-mile bike ride. We went to a bike path that lay right along a creek. We parked the car at a store, then rode down to the trail. It was beautiful, and probably the most wonderful bike ride I've ever been on! :) Here are some pictures:

Driving to the trail

Self-portraits are fun...


Wow, imagine that!

We saw hundreds of these... We should have brought a gun... :)

A small part of the "trail" turned into a road... but it was a pretty nice trail. However, there were a few mud puddles. Remember, whenever you see a huge mud puddle in the middle of the trail, speed up as fast as you can, and fly through the water!!!! Who can resist mud puddles?

We're almost done

Yep, sitting in the creek is real fun... especially at the end of a long bike ride. I love water! :)


And stretching...

Headed home... :)

A Tad Bit of an Update

It's been a long time since we've posted, hasn't it? We've been having the most WONDERFUL days ever!!!! We got our first rains of the season, finally! :) I love April showers.... There's something much too wonderful to describe about being outside, after coming back from a short walk, and you're raking up leaves and twigs, when, all of a sudden, you hear, "Splish, splash, pitter, patter," and then, you feel something wet on your face, and you look up to see hundreds of drops of water falling from above... Whenever that happens, I always put down whatever I'm doing, and run out into an open spot, away from the trees, then start skipping, dancing, and twirling. I LOVE rain!!!! :) Anyways, so as to not bore you too much with my ramblings, here are some pictures:

Also, it's some one's birthday today... Love ya, Maria! We had a really fantastic time celebrating her birthday. The night before, we celebrated with cake and presents, then tonight, we went for a girls' night out... :)

Personally, I think this cake looks a little like a dog on steroids or maybe a dog that had a little too much caffeine. That's why his eyes are spinning... :)
