Mommy's Day

OK,'s a bit early. But, I was fortunate enough to already get my mother's day present: A new bike! I have been without a bike for quite a few years and I am not sure I've had a new one since I was like 7 (and even then I'm not sure if it was a hand-me-down or not). Anyway, Dave got a new bike 2 summers ago. I have either been pregnant or had small babies, so I haven't been all that interested until now. This year I decided that I wanted to ride bikes with Dave. It would be fun to go on family jaunts since Callie is old enough to sit in the trailer now.

Dave took me shopping and we picked out (I think) the perfect bike (for me). I'm so excited. We bought it last night on our fantastic date (visiting friends who just had a baby, going to the Silver Dipper, and then walking along the trail and just was beautiful). On our way home, he pulled into Walmart where the one that I really liked was, and we bought it (and groceries).

We've already been for two bike rides today. One to Meijer and one just around the neighborhood. The rain drove us back in the house though. That's OK. My jello legs need to get used to this type of exercise. :-)

It's been another great day.

I got a bike when I graduated from high was stolen in grad school. A bike is on my list too--with a tandem for Henry to get some confidence!
