Biking, Biking and more Biking

About 4 weeks ago Lucas started to ride his bike on his own!!! We got him the bike for his 5th birthday and rather than getting the right size we got one size bigger than what he needed. We tried all last summer to get him to ride his bike but it was really just too big for him. This spring when he was finally tall enough to sit on the seat and touch the ground he was riding it within a couple of weeks. After riding around the block the first time with his dad he said, "Dad, I think I love biking as much as you do now." :)
Speaking of biking, we went to our first Motorcross event at the Rocky Mountain Raceways and even though it was spring time it was snowing, blowing and freezing. Steve was out of town so the boys and I went by ourselves and after watching the guys on bikes warm up for an hour we had had enough. The competition had not even started when we left but by the time we got to the truck all of our fingers and toes were FROZE! We finally warmed up right before we got home so we decided to stop for some ice cream.
A couple of Saturdays ago Steve and I took the boys to grandma Judy's house and we took our bikes downtown for the Tour de Brewtah. We got to ride around to four different breweries and received a pint of beer at each one. Needless to say I was feeling no pain at the end of our ride.

The Tulip Festival

Last month we met up with some of my MOPS friends at Thanksgiving Point for the Tulip Festival. Even though a lot of the tulips had not bloomed yet it was still a beautiful day and we enjoyed walking around and just being amongst friends.
We have enjoyed watching our little friend Danee three days a week for the last month or so. I did learn right away that it is tough going from two to three kids and especially a younger kid who is not quit as independent as Landon at three years old. We will be watching her up until the end of this school season when our schedule gets a little bit crazy with vacations, swimming and other summer activities.

My "Bleeping" Blog

So I am not sure what the deal is with my blog but it has really been frustrating me lately - hence the lack of my blogging. Some times it will put in a bunch of spaces between my pictures and even though I go through and delete them and save my changes, when I go to view my blog the spaces are still there. My Easter blog was really a pain. I went in like three times and added text but it would not save the text. Don't think I was being lazy I was just fed up. Hopefully it was just that particular post, I promise to try again.
