Trip - Day Two

Wednesday, May 09, 2012

Today began with doing schoolwork and then just hanging out until after lunch. I finished a book! Whoo Hoo! Anyway, after lunch we headed out for a bike ride. We had planned on about 3 miles, but it turned into 5 or so. Lots of hills which made for fun when you were on the down side....not as fun coming back up them! LOL Afterwards the kids went swimming for a little while and I went to the fitness center and did some resistance and ab work. I forgot to take a photo of the gym! Tomorrow.... I came home after that and began dinner prep before I got a chance to sit down. Ended up going back to the store after dinner for a couple things, but I'm done for the night now. Going to read through some magazines before the day is done. skating! Whoo Hoo!

We parked at the grocery store where the trail began.

Isaac on the trail. He was much happier on this leg of the journey. Not so much on the coming back!

Just a spot on the trail/

Maegann on the trail. She kept stopping right as it was time to go up a steeper hill. Couldn't quite get her to understand that she should use the momentum from a downhill to get up the next hill. LOL

Our "home away from home." We're the green van.

View from our back door. We have a pool, playground and hot tub. I was informed last night that "some old ladies are in the hot tub." Makes me wonder just how "old" they really were!

    I can sympathize with Isaac about getting tired after a while. When I went to college in Austin, TX, the dorm was a few blocks away and I rode my bike to get there. There was an obvious way to get there which had a steep hill. At first I used that, but then I discovered there was a slightly longer way that didn't have the hill. That was considerably easier to do!
