We took our first family bike ride yesterday. After just under 10 miles we found ourselves well worked out with very sore bottoms. We plan on doing this on a regular, but we are definitely going to need to get some new seats or padded shorts or something. Fun, but OUCH!!!
It rained all day, but time it let up the husband and kids began their annual tradition of blowing stuff up in celebration of Independence Day. They didn’t buy nearly as much as usual, but still it’s a pretty good stockpile.
We spent our wet fourth of July Celebrations hanging out with my husbands parents. The girls taught grandma how to play uno while Pappi and grandpa chilled out under the drive smoking a big ole’ boston butt. I’d actually made breakfast on that a grill as well. It was an interesting scene. House robe and flip flops and a huge stream of smoke. I’m so glad you can’t see our house from the road. Anyway, Like I said it was a wet fourth for us so there were not any fireworks, however we did have running in the rain courtesy of my Anna. Children seem to make the best out of everything. We really enjoyed the day.
We took a weeklong vacation and although we had a gadget free week we didn’t do so well on the sugar front. I took food for the road trip up so we survived the first couple days sugar free, but I didn’t count on the fact continental breakfast are mainly sugar products. After the first waffle(even with sugar free syrup) and apple juice (which we don’t drink at all at home) the girls were right back hooked and having full blown cravings. We spent an entire day at Silver Dollar City and ate whatever we could find in the park. I figured the girls could have whatever they want considering the first ride we got on was the 2nd fastest wooden roller-coaster
1st Drop on Outlaw Run
in the world. The first roller-coaster for both girls and myself. (scared the crap out of my Anna). By the road trip home I allowed the to have candy at the gas station. We have to detox all over again. Here comes another week of cranky children… I think I’m going to have to set my husband up in the basement to avoid the cranky women (smile)
