Perfect Weekend

Perfect Sunday Afternoon....

Ike and I both like to be outside and active, and now that we live on the reservoir, and so close to the trace we have been dying to have bikes.  We have spent many Saturdays going to look at bikes, and always talk ourselves out of them.  Saturday was like every other…breakfast from McDonald’s (we have this EVERY single Saturday!) and then a little yard work.  I was pulling weeds (of course, Ike wants me to do this cause I absolutely hate this chore) and Ike was push mowing.  All the sudden he stops the mower and says I think we need to get bikes today.  I was super excited!  So we spent the rest of the afternoon getting all the things required to own bikes, and then we went and test drove a few.  Neither of us had every ridden a “nice” bike.  We both had mountain bikes growing up with big fat tires.  The bikes we got are not a road bike, but like one step from it so the tires are small which allows you to go pretty fast.  ANYWAY!  We LOVE them!  Sunday I was dying to go riding.  It was like Christmas morning as a kid.  I woke up at like 6 and could not go back to sleep.  This is NOT like me, I LOVE to sleep in.  Around 7, we got up and went for a ride.  We rode around the reservoir which was beautiful.  Yesterday afternoon we went for another ride, and then hung out on a blanket by the reservoir, which is the picture above.  It was the ABSOLUTE BEST day!  It was pretty weather, the best company, and just all together fun!  If we can figure out how to take Buster on the bike rides that would be even better!  I do have to say I learned that body is not what it used to be, and may take some time to adjust to riding a bike J 
I’m looking forward to many many weekends like this one!

St. Patty's Day Parade!

This was our first experience with a St. Patty’s day parade.  I usually don't even remember to wear green.  We have been hearing about what a big deal it is since we moved here, I had no idea!!!  The parade started at 1pm, but people start getting there when the sun comes up to mark their spot like tailgating.  By the time we got there around 12 we had to walk a few miles, and you would not believe the ordeal to cross the street.  Melody, a friend from work, had invited us all to hang out at her spot.  It was fun!  It brought out the kid in me, I loved catching beads!

SUYL with Kelly's Korner

I'm linking up with today's show us your life at Kelly's Korner.  This month I have been taking the laid back approach for many reasons, and I have to say I have felt better!  This blog is my way of keeping up with our lives so we can easily look back at what was going on from year to year and unfortunately infertility has been a part of it.  You can look back where I started sharing our story here ...

We love visitors!

Last weekend we had visitors!  My cousin Ashley, her husband, Drew and their boys came down to visit on Friday afternoon, and my sister and her husband suprised them by coming down Saturday morning to hang out with us!  We fit as much as we could into a weekend.  Saturday morning we went to the Children's museum which was so neat.  It was Dr. Suess's birthday though so there was an unimaginable amount of children there, and parents chasing children.  I think the boys really liked it!  Then we attempted to eat lunch at Chuck E Cheese.  Apparently everyone had the same idea, so we ended up at Cici's.  The girls decided to do a little shopping before we went bowling that night.  Ike and I LOVE visitors.  It was neat too because we did things we never do.  I felt like a tourist. Come back soon guys! 

Buster LOVED the company too...He even slept with them one night!    

Gaming.... These boys love games, I had more downloads on my iphone in one weekend than in it's entire life.
Ready for the Museum.

Love these girls and miss them!
Sweet Family!
