So how was our holiday? Much like a balancing act, with just a little over a week before we leave for Farm Chicks, things are beginning to heat up, (that is another way to say tense up)more about the divorce later... (just kidding) As you know every circus has a lion or in this case a lioness/ring leader and I picked me... Most likely not the best choice, but it is what it is...
With all that said, I try to think from the little clown's (Sam) perspective once in awhile. That was why we took time for a bike ride. We rode about 200 miles (okay more like 2) to a BMX bike trail park and while I was recovering and lamenting the return trip. This was what the clown on the bike was doing.
I did have a lucky break, I think you will agree. When one of my friends drove by, it was one of the times I was actually on the bike pedaling as opposed to beside it pushing!
I also made it to my sister Toni's last evening to meet up with the big boys, in the spirit of keeping it all in balance. I don't know if you noticed these sharper, clearer more aesthetically pleasing photos, but I did get a new camera. And as you might have guessed, the technical part is over my head. Luckily Dusty took photography for a few terms in school and he remembers what he learned. I also took it but...not so lucky.
I love this rose, it is so perfect! I can't believe I don't have it! These pictures are all from Toni's gardens. I hope I'm right, I think the name is Abraham Darby, it is just starting to bloom.
The red and white rose in the corner is called, Fourth of July!
How fun is that!
And the bike in flowers, that's where I hid it... Enough is enough!
