First Friday in May we went for our first bike ride. I was crazy thinking I could bike after a crazy leg day morning workout, but we were committed so we did it! It was a gorgeous day. We were just going to bike to Park Siding (about a mile from our house, or maybe even a half mile ---> just looked it up, it's .6 miles) anyway we rode past and I decided I wanted to go to Rustica for some coffee. So we went through first, kids split a chocolate Eclair.
Made it to the park for some play time and to eat our packed lunch.
Spring is FINALLY blooming! I'm not sure what this tree is but I love it!
It started getting chilly at the park when the sun went behind a bunch of clouds. So we decided to head out. I wanted to take a stroll around the lake. They are closing part of the bike path tomorrow :-( for construction and it will be closed for THREE YEARS! I am so sad, but change is good right... only problem is they are closing it and dozing down thousands of trees and the federal funding has not even been approved yet. I sure hope it does and this project goes through otherwise the demolition will be for nothing. They are planning to put in a light rail from downtown to the suburbs and it will go through this area we so love and utilize. Our neighborhood has been sending emails, signing petitions so we'll see if this goes through tomorrow. We aren't asking them to NOT doing, just asking them to WAIT until there is actual funding for the project because this kind of demolition is not reversible.
Anyway, political rant aside. We did the 3 mile bike ride around the lake and it was glorious. My legs did NOT like me after this.
Girls will be back in swimming soon, last week we did their placement class because this is a new facility we have not been at before. Mary is SOOOO happy to be back in the water.
Thomas feeling SOOO much better after his battle of illness. So great to see him smiling and active again.
Here he is at his little ECFE class.
And at home burning energy :-)
