Gross dead fish and bike ride...

God gave me 3 boys but I am SOOOO not into bugs, frogs, and dirt. My inlaws took my 2 older boys fishing today at the park. Today is the first time they have ever caught anything. When they got home, they came running into the house yelling, "Mommy, look what we caught!!!" Then they shoved the Ziploc bag of dead fish in my face. They were so proud. I marveled at their fishing talents then discreetly made sure the dead, stinky fish were going with grandma and grandpa.

Then, dh wanted me to go on a bike ride with him. We enjoy doing this together, but can't very often without kids. Well inlaws said they would sit with kids, so we were off. Dh is really into this now. I am proud of him. It is a great way for him to stay in shape and often takes the boys with him. We plan to get a basket seat for bam bam for my bike, and make it a regular family thing. I haven't ridden in so long, and dh was determined to make me "push through the pain." I tried my best to keep up with him. At one point I thought I was going to be sick. He said this was my body lying to me to get me to stop. Once I pushed through that, I felt great. At the end of our ride, a 50 something year old guy rode up with the total biking outfit. I was breathing pretty heavy and feeling strong until he said he had been out since 7am and was just finishing a 98 mile ride. We did 13 in 58 minutes. We did stop a few times for drinks and air. Here is the picture of me right after the ride. I look like I am in pain.

I love that face - been there, done that!! heehee

I did answer your question at my blog but thought I'd come over here too - I can't believe you were in Lanc Co! I wonder if I know your friend??? What a trip you took!

My hubby's family has a hunting cabin and that is where we stayed. His family has been hunting in that area for about 30 years so it is very familiar to him!

98 miles????? Is he insane???? Well, anyway, I'm very impressed by the 13 that you did! Jason and I bike sometimes-I really like it. I feel like a stud after riding a few miles!! I should take a pic of myself after I jog in the morning-no,wait. I don't want to frighten any small children!
