Week of fun!!

I got to have 4 of my nieces this past week. We had so much fun. We rode horses alot. They really enjoyed them this time. We let the 2 oldest ride them by themselves. We rode the 4 wheelers and go karts. Went raspberry picking, and climbed a huge hill and slid down it. The girls thought that it was so much fun. I was sad to take them back to their parents. But I get to see them next week!!!

This weekend marks the centennial year the "Tabernacle," our stake center, was built. The Church here is having all sorts of activities to celebrate the special occasion. This morning they had a 10.5 mile bike ride from the rock quarry to the Tabernacle. We thought it would be lots of fun to try it. We made T-shirts that had the names of C's relatives that were alive in 1909.

WE MADE IT!! Even my Father in-law who is 70 years old made the whole trek. He had my MIL meet us at different points along the way in their car just in case he wasn't up for the whole thing but he was.
When we got up in the morning it was really windy and it looked like it was going to rain. We decided to go up to the starting line to see what it was like. Turns out I liked the overcast skies. It made it so I wasn't overly heated during the ride. But I have to say that my tush is a little sore. Definitely have not ridin' bikes enough this year.
