Chippewa Valley Century Ride '13

Our 5th trip to Chippewa Falls, WI.
My second organized ride!

39.3 miles!
(This is Allison's bike computer,  she rode extra to make it to 40. Then rolled it to the car. I got to 39.3 and was so glad to be finished!  Around 32 I thought I wasn't going to be able to finish.  I did. I'm tired!

There were 7 of us riding this year.
Kris & Melinda
Allison and her boyfriend Juan
Logan - our nephew
and me :-)

Photos to come soon!

Photo From Kimmie

Kim took this photo of me while we were over there on Mother's Day. It was such a beautiful, fun day. I can't believe this was the only photo of the day. :-(


Baby geese everywhere! 

Mother's Day

A wonderful weekend.

Kris and Melinda came over, we spent Saturday visiting and discovering a new bakery, eating pizza, and visiting some more.

A fun day!

Sunday we all went to see Grandma.

We went to lunch with her and my sister, brother-in-law and nephew.

Then, my favorite part of the day, was sitting in the warm sun on Kimmies patio.
Visiting, laughing, and soaking in each others company.

A great weekend!

A Weekend in Nebraska

Westward Ho!

Allison, Kris, Melinda, Kevin and I headed from our different homes to converge upon the sprawling city of Omaha this past weekend.

Allison had found us a charity bicycle ride to ride in.

We had a great Saturday morning riding. Allison and I went 22 miles and the others went 45! No way was I ready for that, and Allison was kind enough to keep her old mom company.

After the ride, we headed for the Henry Dorley Zoo. What a fun time we had walking around for 3 hours.

Can you believe we were all exhausted by the time we got to Allison's little town?

We went to a pupuseria and ate tacos and pupusas. Yummy!!!

I was falling asleep in the chair as we sat around vegging that night.

Needless to say, and yet I am saying it, I was tired and sore for a couple of days. I hadn't even gone a mile on a bike since last summer!
